in fact, we should just let the players play who we think are clean. of course, any sign of a power surge like trevor plouffe? ****ing pompous dick! suspend him!
What are you going on about?

I just didn't like the way he got off on a technicality and his attitude about it.

Unless you were in there to listen to the defense there's no way you, me or anyone in the media can call it a technicality. The media may say it is but there's no way they can truly call it a technicality unless they have definitive evidence that he got off because of the way the sample was handled and since MLB hasn't released the report from Das and doesn't plan to only a select few people will know.

Braun has very good excuses but I would be utterly shocked if he isn't lying.

Suspension? Jeter would probably get a death sentence.

The list was written in April, in the hand of Biogenesis of America clinic founder Anthony Bosch. Among the names is the Milwaukee Brewers' Ryan Braun, and to the right of that name is a figure: $1,500.

That list, a source familiar with Bosch's operation told "Outside the Lines," indicates that those players received performance-enhancing drugs from Bosch and owed him money. The document, one of dozens obtained by "Outside the Lines," suggests a closer link to Bosch and the now-shuttered clinic he ran in Coral Gables, Fla., than Braun has acknowledged.

The list is not definitive proof that Braun either received or used PEDs -- either would be a suspendable offense under Major League Baseball policy -- but may draw him more squarely into the spotlight as the league investigates the scandal and tries to draw the interest of law enforcement.

But a source familiar with the documents obtained by "Outside the Lines" said the list with Braun's name, which also includes New York Yankees Alex Rodriguez and Francisco Cervelli and Toronto's Melky Cabrera, was a list of players who received PEDs, and that there is "no other reason to be on that paper."

Still no proof that he did anything wrong but Braun might need to come up with a new and better story now. This isn't going away like he was hoping it would.
