Resolution of Gibbons' situation could affect roster decisions

Possible lifting of punishment would affect O's moves

The Orioles might not have two extra weeks to decide the fate of veteran outfielder Jay Gibbons, after all.

The commissioner's office and the players union are negotiating changes to Major League Baseball's drug policy in the wake of the Mitchell Report, and the result could be the rescinding of Gibbons' 15-day suspension for violating the substance-abuse prevention program....

The possibility of his and Kansas City Royals outfielder Jose Guillen's suspension being lifted was first reported by the Associated Press. Orioles manager Dave Trembley and president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail acknowledged that the club is aware of the possibility. Officials from MLB and the players union did not return calls seeking comment.

Maybe this will force PGA to cut Jay - it's obvious he has no business taking a spot on the 40-man roster, let alone going north with the team. The man, quite simply, is no longer a competent ML player. He serves no purpose.

Do the right thing, Peter - cut Jay Gibbons.
