For a second there I thought I was going to have to change my team name to the Oregon Herpes Hammers.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.

How else do you win the case? Even if he was found innocent - meaning he unknowingly took it - he'd still get the 50 game suspension and that's the tragedy of it. The guilty get hanged with the innocent when it comes to the suspension. Kudos to Braun's lawyers; let Braun prove what kind of player he is on the field since the rule doesn't care whether he willfully did it or not.

Gives him more RBI opportunities hitting behind a .300 hitter. Also gives Gamel a shot to not take as much heat if he starts cold.

Yeah I'm not really sure how his team spun this one. It's not like a two day old sample is spontaneously going to experience a huge spike in synthetic testosterone.

I'm sure that they said that during the two days it could have been contaminated or something, or tampered with.

Still, it seems pretty stupid to me that Braun failed a test, AND a more specific retest and isn't getting suspended, Manny Ramirez can just wait and get his suspension cut in half, A-Rod can get busted and nobody really cares, but Barry Bonds, who never failed a test, continues to get slammed for alleged steroid use.

Traded Braun for Upton this fall because I'd kept him 3 years and would have had to throw him back. My trade partner is pretty happy today.
