I can’t believe it, but he actually comes off as even more of a jerk off.

The games are more fun to watch now that its not a bunch of muscle heads hitting homers like a slow pitch softball game.

Hope someone fights the commissioner and he suspends them for an entire season.

Braun accepted a 65-game suspension instead of appealing, which would have pushed the process into 2014. Baseball needed a pelt this calendar year, and it got one. Braun gets 35 games shaved off the proposed suspension and gets to start next season anew, presumably when Corey Hart and Matt Gamel are healthy. I don’t think this has anything to do with Milwaukee; I’m sure A Rod, Evereth Cabrera, Jesus Montero or others were offered the same deal. After the MLBPA disavowed PED users over the All Star break, it was just a matter of time before someone copped a plea. Braun now sets the precedent – if the guy who beat the system last year makes a deal, guys out there know they’re on their own, and MLB isn’t messing around this time. I bet you see at least one more player take a voluntary suspension before the season is over.

Why is Braun first of the 20 guys to get suspended?

Looks like a convenient thing to do for a commissioner who just happens to really like Milwaukee.

Would have preferred this to occur next year.
