Marte, money and a suggested solution

Here we go again.

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before in regard to a banned-substance-induced suspension: “Neglect and lack of knowledge have led me to this mistake…”

This time it’s Starling Marte of the Pittsburgh Pirates using this ridiculous cop out and smoke screen to try and shift the spotlight off his own selfishness. My disappointment extends to all Major League Baseball players caught cheating their peers, but I want to focus on Marte’s statement.
