Kornheiser on Mariners’ Cano Serving Suspension While Nursing Injury: ‘I Don’t Think That’s Fair’

Tuesday, ESPN “Pardon the Interruption” hosts Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon discussed Seattle Mariners star second baseman Robinson Cano’s 80-game suspension for testing positive for a banned substance that will be served as the former All-Star nurses a fractured hand.

“I don’t think that’s fair,” Kornheiser stated. “He’s a drug cheat. He should be not allowed to serve this thing concurrently with what now looks like the fortunate coincidence of breaking his hand. No, no, no, no. Ryan Braun was a drug cheat. Alex Rodriguez, when he played, was a drug cheat. No, no. This is the sentence you get for being caught with the intent to defraud the game, which is what Major League Baseball is saying. They gave a great player 80 games here. So, no, if you’re out for 40 games because you’ve got a bad hand, no.”
