Astros Debacle

Even serial killers suffer a lesser sentence.

Maybe a little, but this had an effect on everyone that faced them at home. 81 regular season home games were not truly fair competitions. Post Season was a joke, in retrospect.
If Shoeless Joe Jackson is still being punished for all eternity for his (non-compliant) role in 1913, then I don't think my punishment is too harsh. After about 15 years the Astros would start getting 1st round draft picks back. There is an end to the sentencing terms.

That's a butt load of salary lost for the players, a full year lost of time and stats. And basically creates a lost season to the Astros.
The team loses a full year of service time to their core and players that are up for FA lose the benefit of a productive season going into the off season.
It's a major hit for everyone involved but certainly is a just punishment for a team accused of cheating and winning 2 ALCS championships and a WS in that time.

Heck yeah, heavy!
There are players that have moved onto other teams and suspending them will only punish the wrong team. The organization needs to be punished ... they need to have a season or two or three ... like my Marlins ... that will humble them a little. The cheater players will play the upcoming season without the unfair advantage they had, and if they suck this year, everyone will know it and act accordingly. If someone sucks after a 1 year layoff, they can blame the suspension. If they suck without the benefit of cheating ... then free market value will decide.

I guess if I saved used tinfoil and used tea bags instead of old comic books and old baseball cards, the difference between a crazed hoarder and a savvy collector is in that inherent value.
