I'm betting Selig's going to do everything he can to make it quicker.
As am I. We'll have a decision by the end of the week.

We will not. The suspension was filed under the Joint Drug Agreement, which allows for immediate appeal and the stay on suspension until the appeal is heard and decided upon (the mechanism by which guys like Braun and Melky continued to play until their appeals were heard, which took several months; MLB fired arbitrator Shyam Das after he ruled in Braun's favor aftor a lengthy process). The MLBPA has already filed that appeal. There is no possibility of Selig acting unilaterally at this point -- the process is in motion.
