Ryan Braun had some pretty impressive stats last night. Braun went 4/5 at the plate with 3 HRs, 1 triple and 6 RBIs. Not too shabby for someone that is playing in his 22nd game of the season (not even half-way through what SHOULD have been a 50 game suspension).

It's a REAL shame that his suspension was not upheld.

3 Homers last night? Man, he must have upped his dose.

"Okay Mr. Braun, there's your steroid shot."

"Nah man, hit me again. I feel a good game coming tonight."

"But Mr. Braun-- we don't even know if that amount is safe for the human body! You could get hur-"

"Dammit man! Load me up and no more backtalk! And you better make sure you have enough stock on hand for the rest of the season! Give Berkman a call if you run low. ROIDRAGE!!!!..... hey, have you seen my ninja mask around?"

The thing that makes this really impressive is that it was at Petco. I hate the guy as much as anyone but that is really hard to do. I'm betting he found a new PED.

Among all of the reasons to dislike the guy, he's also one of those players that are on the list of Cubs Killers... Those that always seem to have BIG hits against the Cubs, and usually pick the worst times to have them. Of course the list of Cubs Killers numbers several hundred these days...

Braun is not particularly "clutch," even against the Cubs. He is particularly good, however: which means that he gets a lot of "big" hits. He's got a great eye, good plate coverage, and he swings to drive the ball at all times. That's a pretty deadly combination of skills.

Yeah, and he's a donger!

I'm not sure that it is a "fact." However, it is the explanation that best fits the available facts (i.e., a single positive result amidst several tests, the very fuzzy, borderline non-explanation for why). It also provides a probable explanation for why he did not inform MLB of the medication: I think that I'd be a bit reticent! (And, of course, unless he knew anything about medicine, he might not have known that herpes meds are designed to alter hormone levels.)

You need to catch up with how things work around here. When I say it's a fact, it's a fact, regardless of the "facts" or the "truth".

So, the guy who overturned the suspension was fired today. Herpe-face MVP gets away with juicing, and the drug tester and the guy who let him off the hook take the fall. This guy is a giant p.o.s.
