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

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.

Does this influence Aramis Ramirez's numbers at all?

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.
