Who has decided I don’t have the talent? Your logic dictates that an MLB salary is a right. Why are my rights being violated?

It’s not a right. He was hired by an MLB team. He has not legally broken any laws (as of yet, still needs to be proven). He went through the interview process, so to speak, and passed. Now, because of an accusation that has yet to be proven, he is now suspended. Have you tried out for an MLB team? If not, go for it. If you pass the process, sweet! (and first round is on you, right? ;) ) Just don’t get accused of anything unsavory.

He signed a contract under the rules set forth by the owners and the players union which included the rules about sexual misconduct, assault, etc. The league conducted an investigation and found he violated the terms of that contract. He can appeal, sue the league, etc. Why is this so hard for you to understand?

I understand that. My original point is that I disagree with it, strongly. I don’t want anyone in any business to get suspended/fired/etc on an (as of yet) unproven allegation.
