I disagree. It's well within Arod's rights under the JDA to appeal a suspension. It's Selig acting "above the game" by indicating that he will suspend Arod outside the rules of the JDA and not allow an appeal to an arbitrator. Regardless of what anyone thinks of Arod, he still has a right to due process.
Your ignorance, once again, is showing.
Any ban of ARod by Selig under the "best interests" clause would be for ARod's actions outside of what's covered by the JDA for which, supposedly, there is a ton of supporting evidence, i.e. witness tampering, attempting to obtain and destroy evidence from the investigation, etc.
