Wow.
They don't have to do this. Everybody knows the arithmetic. We get the annual reports. Several parts of their company are doing very well. The Rocky had a tough year. They decided to walk away. Basically, my feeling is they quit on us. They quit on everybody in the newsroom. -- Jeff Legwold, Rocky

ESPN report pointing out that Braun was among the most critical of A-Rod after his PED admission in 2009.

Nice.

Has anyone checked on Bubbler? Or is he in the middle of crafting a 600-word post on this thread?

Suprises me only in that he was caught. Usually, the users are way ahead of the testers.

The Cubs will still suck, Rick.

Not if they sign Yu Darvish and Prince Fielder, and if Starlin Castro learns to play defense, and Carlos Zambrano actually pitches a whole season, and Brett Jackson and Ian Stewart can each hit .245 or better, and Geovany Soto continues his even-year streak, and Ryan Dempster's peripherals were his true ability last year, and Carlos Marmol's shoulder doesn't fall off like it seems poised to, and Alfonso Soriano's legs can hold up for one more year.

If all that happens, you can take 86 wins to the bank, baby.

After all the stories out there about his loyalty to Milwaukee and how he was a throwback...heehee, better chance for the Cardinals that sucks.

http://espn.go.com/dallas/story/_/id/7338271/ryan-braun-milwaukee-brewers-tests-positive-performance-enhancing-drug

Sample came during the playoffs. First test of the sample came back with elevated levels of testosterone:epitestosterone (1:1 is normal, 4:1 or greater yields a positive test). A subsequent test of the sample was positive for synthetic testosterone.

This isn't even getting caught with a masking agent or questionable supplement. This is the real deal.

50 games is not enough.  They need to move toward track like multi year suspensions.
