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. Mats Sundin 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." Tiger Williams Jersey . -- Stanley Johnson scored all 18 of his points in the second half, T. Mitchell Marner Jersey . -- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have released veteran guard Davin Joseph, a mainstay on their offensive line over the past eight seasons. . Wiggins, a 6-foot-8, 200-pound forward who plays his first exhibition game on Wednesday against Pitt State, was the top prospect in the class of 2013.CORTINA DAMPEZZO, Italy - Two serious knee surgeries, fog, soft snow, and mounting pressure to match one of skiings most hallowed records.Nothing seems to stop Lindsey Vonn.The American fought through difficult conditions to win a demanding downhill Sunday and match Annemarie Moser-Proells 35-year-old record of 62 World Cup wins, capping a comeback from injuries that kept her out of last years Sochi Olympics.The last two years have been pretty tough and a lot of people counted me out and thought I would never reach this record, Vonn said. A lot of people thought that I would never win again. I never stopped believing in myself and I think I proved everyone wrong.Vonn clocked a time of one minute, 39.61 seconds down the Olympia delle Tofane course to finish 0.32 ahead of Elisabeth Goergl of Austria.It was just a tough day out there. The snow was a little bit soft but I did the best that I could, Vonn said. I fought really hard and to have a 62nd win with my whole family here pretty much Im missing some brothers and sisters it just feels amazing and its such a special day.Vonns dad, mother, step dad, step mom and younger sister Laura attended the race. Family and members of Vonns coaching staff put on celebratory T-shirts that said, Congratulations to our golden Lindsey! Awesome!Daniela Merighetti of Italy was third, 0.54 back. Larisa Yurkiw of Owen Sound, Ont., was the top Canadian, finishing 24th with a time of 1:41.74.Vonn can break Moser-Proells record in a super-G scheduled for Monday.I think 62 is more important to me, Vonn said. Now I feel like from here on out Im already tied for No. 1. So Im just going to try to continue to win races and Im skiing for another three years so theres a lot of racing left in me and Ill just keep on doing my best.Moser-Proell, an Austrian great, established the record between 1970 and 1980.Swedish standout Ingemark Stenmark holds the mens record of 86 wins.I feel like everyone has been talking about (the record) so much and its a little bit frustrating because I just want to focus on the skiing, Vonn said. I felt it was just getting ahead of the actual skiing. Im happy that the story is hopefully behind me now soo I can just move forward and continue to do my best and hopefully get a lot more wins. Connor Carrick Jersey. Vonn was on track to smash the record two years ago before she crashed at the world championships and tore up her right knee, requiring serious surgery. She attempted to return for Sochi but re-injured her knee two months before the games and had to have surgery again.Im trying to push the limits, always take tighter lines and ski like the men, Vonn said. Sometimes it doesnt work and I crash. Thats part of my sport. But I dont change anything. Thats my mentality go big or go home.So having those ups and downs make the ups that more special, Vonn added. The last few wins have been so incredible.This was Vonns third win of the season all in downhill and the eighth of her career in Cortina.And it was anything but straightforward.As clouds moved over the middle of the course, the race was momentarily suspended after 12 skiers came down. And even when Vonn and the other favourites went, visibility varied over each section of the piste.Vonn came down with the No. 20 bib and had a nervous wait when Goergl came down with No. 22 and was faster at the first two checkpoints. But Goergl couldnt keep up with Vonn on the final turns.I wasnt very fast on the top. I dont really know what I did exactly. But I maintained my speed on the bottom and thats where I won the race, Vonn said.Goergl, who swept gold in downhill and super-G at the 2011 world championships, wasnt interested in discussing Vonns record.For me its more about the racing and the competition, the Austrian said. The statistics and all that stuff, I dont really care.Vonn had a few bobbles at the start of her run but increased her lead over then-leader Merighetti at every checkpoint. At the finish, Vonn collapsed to the snow in a scene of relief, then used her ski poles to pick herself back up, flashed a big smile and received a hug from overall World Cup leader Tina Maze, who finished fifth.The crowd of a few thousand fans in the finish area gave Vonn sporadic cheers, as most of them were rooting for Merighetti to hold the lead.___Andrew Dampf can be followed at Cheap Bosnia Herzegovina Soccer Jerseys Cheap Belgium Soccer Jerseys Cheap Austria Soccer Jerseys Cheap Australia Soccer Jerseys Cheap Danmark Soccer Jerseys Cheap Ecuador Soccer Jerseys Cheap Egypt Soccer Jerseys Cheap England Soccer Jerseys Cheap Finland Soccer Jerseys Cheap France Soccer Jerseys Cheap Germany Soccer Jerseys Cheap Ghana Soccer Jerseys Cheap Greece Soccer Jerseys Cheap Argentina Soccer Jerseys Cheap Netherlands Soccer Jerseys Cheap Honduras Soccer Jerseys Cheap Hungary Soccer Jerseys Cheap Iceland Soccer Jerseys Cheap Indonesia Soccer Jerseys Cheap Iraq Soccer Jerseys ' ' '
