A) Do we know he did that? B) You act like it's an investigation with authority. MLB's investigation carried no more legal weight than an investigation by you or me. C) All of the alleged obstruction was directly related to PEDs. Without the PEDs, there was no investigation to obstruct.
Wishful thinking from a Yankee fan wanting to get rid of Arod. Dude's a douche and he cheated and deserves to be suspended. But the suspension needs to be within the guidelines set forth in the JDA. It makes no sense to suspend everyone else for 50 games and suspend Arod for 211.

So yes. MLB can carry out an internal investigation of violations of it's rules and hand out discipline within the guidelines of the JDA AND
It doesn't take a degree in rocket science to understand that.
