NEW YORK -- Baseball players and management hope to reach a new drug agreement this week that would increase initial penalties for muscle-building steroids and allow a decrease of suspensions for some positive tests caused by unintentional use, people familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press. Drew Brees Jersey . For future suspensions, the deal also would eliminate the loophole allowing Alex Rodriguez to earn almost $3 million during his season-long ban, the people said. They spoke on condition of anonymity in recent days because talks are ongoing. The sides hope to reach an agreement by Sunday, when the Los Angeles Dodgers open the U.S. portion of the major league schedule at the San Diego Padres. While the lengths have not been finalized, a person involved with the talks said Wednesday the most likely penalties would be about 80 games for an initial testing violation and a season-long ban for a second. "It will be a significant deterrent because players will know theyre not going to just easily walk back into a lineup," Travis Tygart, chief executive officer of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, said in a telephone interview. "It probably is the best policy in professional sports." For use of a limited group of substances, the sides were discussing giving the arbitration panel that hears appeals grievances the authority to reduce suspensions by as much as 50 per cent if the player proves the positive test was caused by unintentional use, the person said. "What were all here for it to rid sports of the intentional cheats, those who are intending to defraud both the fans and their fellow teammates, the integrity of competition," Tygart said. "You want to have provisions in place that allow for whether theres an inadvertent or a truly non-intentional situation which may arise." Since the 2006 season, the Major League Baseballs drug agreement has called for a 50-game suspension for a first positive steroids test, a 100-game ban for a second and a lifetime penalty for a third. Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig called for tougher penalties last March, and then-union head Michael Weiner said players would consider them for 2014. Weiner died in November and was succeeded by former All-Star Tony Clark, who has led the negotiations. Major League Baseballs investigation of the Biogenesis of America anti-aging clinic led to 14 suspensions last summer, including a 65-game penalty for former NL MVP Ryan Braun of Milwaukee and a 211-game ban for Rodriguez, which was reduced to 162 games in January by an arbitrator. The section covering violations not related to positive tests, which was used by Selig in the Biogenesis case, will be clarified but still will allow discipline for "just cause." Many players have advocated stiffer penalties as a deterrent. Arizona pitcher Brad Ziegler spoke out after Jhonny Peralta, who served a 50-game suspension, agreed in November to a $53 million, four-year contract with St. Louis. "We thought 50 games would be a deterrent. Obviously its not. So we are working on it again," he tweeted then. "It pays to cheat... Thanks, owners, for encouraging PED use." Some players said suspensions should lead to larger monetary losses. San Diego Padres outfielder Will Venable maintained last summer "somehow having to forfeit or void your contract that youre under is something that needs to be the main focus of the penalties." But for the majority of players, that would go too far. "Id venture to guess that even though there are concerns on a number of levels, that we will never end up in a world where player contracts are voided as a result," Clark told the AP during a January interview. Addressing positives caused by inadvertent use was a factor in the talks. Philadelphia infielder Freddy Galvis was suspended for 50 games in June 2012 for a Clostebol Metabolite, which he later claimed was contained in a foot cream he used. Reliever Guillermo Mota, then with San Francisco, was suspended for 100 games in May 2012 after taking a cough syrup with Clenbuterol. The new deal also will state that a player receives none of his salary during a season-long suspension. The current deal said a player loses as many days pay as games he is suspended. Since players are paid over a 183-day season this year, arbitrator Fredric Horowitz ruled Rodriguez was entitled to 21-183rds of his $25 million salary, or $2,868,852. "Thats fantastic," Tygart said. "You hit them in the pocketbook, and thats really where the cheaters are most deterred from attempting to steal money from the other players." Willie Roaf Jersey . LOUIS -- The Tampa Bay Rays have placed right-handed pitcher Joel Peralta on the 15-day disabled list with an undisclosed illness. Archie Manning Jersey ." Argos general manager Jim Barker uttered those words during an interview with TSN 1050 radio just prior to the CFLs annual free agent frenzy. http://www.thenflsaintsauthenticonline.com/Youth-Will-Lutz-Elite-Jersey/ . -- Hal Steinbrenner says Alex Rodriguez is "a great player" and "obviously an asset," but the New York Yankees managing general partner wouldnt discuss the third basemans possible return to the team following a season-long suspension.MELBOURNE, Australia - Tim Cahill sparked an Australian fightback after an early deficit as the hosts beat Kuwait 4-1 in the opening match of the Asian Cup on Friday.A vocal sellout crowd of 25,000 at the Rectangular Stadium, dressed predominantly in Australias green and gold colours, was stunned into silence after eight minutes when Kuwait defender Hussain Fadhel opened the scoring by diving to head in a low corner at the near post.The players were told in no uncertain terms that (conceding) that kind of goal was unacceptable, Australia coach Ange Postecoglou said. They were pretty disappointed in themselves and we need to ensure it doesnt happen again.The equalizer didnt appear until the 33rd minute when three-time World Cup veteran Cahill deftly met a Massimo Luongo pass just outside the box and drove it into the top of the net.Cahills goal energized the Australians, who pinned Kuwait deep in its half over the ensuing minutes.By halftime it was 2-1, man-of-the-match Luongo himself rising above the defence to head in a long pass over the outstretched hands of Kuwait goalkeeper Hameed Youssef for his first international goal.It was amazing, Luongo said. It felt the world to me, and scoring it on home soil was even better. I couldnt imagine a better day.Kuwaits stoic defence turned to desperation in the second half when Robbie Kruse was brought down by Salah Sheikh Alenezi in the area, allowing Australia captain Mile Jedinak to slot home the penalty.Australia was very strong and took advantage physically and with their speed, Kuwait coach Nabil Maaloul said. Manti Teo Jersey. There was a big difference between the level of the Australian team and the Kuwait team.Australia ruthlessly hunted for a fourth goal. Substitute Nathan Burns came close with two shots on goal until James Troisi delivered in the 90th.I would have preferred we didnt concede the (opening) goal, but from the perspective of seeing the reaction, it was the right kind of reaction, Postecoglou said. They didnt go into their shells and, if anything, it made them more determined to overcome their opponents.With the win, Australia took the early lead in Group A, which also includes South Korea and Oman.Australia is attempting to win the Asian Cup for the first time since joining the Asian Football Confederation from Oceania in 2006. The Socceroos lost the 2011 final to Japan.Kuwait is ranked 15th among Asian teams. Although it won the Asian Cup in 1980, Kuwait finished 14th in 2011.Australia next plays Oman in Sydney on Tuesday, while Kuwait takes on South Korea in Canberra.___Lineups:Australia: Matthew Ryan, Ivan Franjic, Tim Cahill (Tom Juric, 95), Matthew Spiranovic, Mathew Leckie, Robbie Kruse (Nathan Burns, 72), Aziz Behich, James Troisi, Mile Jedinak, Trent Sainsbury, Massimo Luongo ( Mark Bresciano, 84).Kuwait: Hameed Youssef, Ali Hussain Fadhel (Amer Almatoug Alfadhel, 57), Fahad Alhajeri, Khaled Alqahtani (Bader Almotawaa, 74), Salah Sheikh Alhendi, Abdulaziz Alenezi (Yousef Naser, 64), Faisal Zayed Alharbi, Ali Almaqseed.
