I like Marte a lot. He's an underrated LF'er.

There's too much incentive to cheat right now. He signed an contract extension in 2015 and he'll still get all of his money. There would be less incentive to cheat if he had to play out the remainder of his contract for the league minimum.

It'll certainly impact his NEXT contract, however, especially if he doesn't play well post-suspension.

He's guaranteed ~$20 million between now and 2019. He hurt his team and his reputation, but the 6-year, $31 million contract he signed is incentive to cheat. He should be set for life.

RE: 2016 and 2017 MLB Thread
You've got it. With the big guaranteed money there is no discouraging to cheat. Players dont care about perception and reputation nearly as much as in years' past. It is all about financial securities and the almighty dollar. Get a big contract, get a large chunk guaranteed and then reap the rewards regardless what happens after that. Teams need to put stipulations in contracts that makes them void if they are caught cheating. So make it in the event of someone getting caught the guaranteed money becomes prorated to what they would have already made on a year to year basis. It won't fully discourage cheating but will make their guarantee money be available to lose each year of the contract so they would have to delay the cheating potentially to make sure they are getting what they need. Wouldn't be shocked if guaranteed money and failed drug tests is the next big hurdle in collective bargaining.
