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.

The MLB investigated this independently of the law for more than 10 months. They found evidence, apparently, that his behavior violated their code of conduct. Whether he’s guilty of a federal crime or not is completely irrelevant. The MLB and the investigative team found enough evidence that they felt comfortable enough to levy the longest suspension they’ve ever handed down. When he freely signed his 100 million dollar contract with the Dodgers he agreed to the terms of the domestic violence policy. The MLB seems to think they have enough evidence to suspend him. The legal system matters 0 to them.
