There's a legal analysis (Steve Callis sp) on wfan. He's saying baseball isn't dropping the hammer life ban or wants to avoid that because it would have to go through an arbitrator and court dates would take 1 or 2 yrs. Also, there's a good chance arbitrator may take Arod's side. There not fans of "taking someone's lively hood away".

If that's true, I can see why Arod is not taking the settlement. I'm sure his lawyers told him that. Or something similar.
I also think he wants a reduced suspension.
