Braun may be innocent. he may be guilty. I don't know, and he sure as hell doesn't know. And that's been my stance all along. None of us have the facts, and for anybody to state definitively "I know what happened, and he's a cheater" is absurd. And I'm not being a homer. I'm shooting holes in their arguments, which are at best specious.

I will go one step further. ANY professional athlete in ANY sport who has ties to Boesch needs to speak up BEFORE their name is leaked to the press. This would have been especially true with Braunoid since he has already came up dirty, even though he got off on a technicality. Not coming clean when you have dealt with someone linked to roids gives me the impression that one has something to hide.

According to yahoo sports, they tried to contact Braun and his agent about the article they posted (before they posted it) and never got a response back, if the case was so simple, why ignore it until it goes live?Click banner for tradelist

People who say Braunoid already has his millions and he has no reason to cheat does not wash with me either. People cheat on their income tax for $20. With the incentives in baseball contracts where a player can make hundreds of thousands if not millions more for their performance you cannot tell me there is no incentive in cheating. If players were not worried about a million here and a million there they would not be going to arbitrators over pay. No one truly knows what's in a players mind except for that player.
I'm sorry, was I wrong that the Brewers have never won a World Series? That in itself is enough motive for a player who is adored by his fans to cheat to try and get a ring for that franchise.

No need to rub in that the Brewers haven't won a world series. A pure ™™™™™™ move.

lambeausouth, I feel for you, I really do. Your guy is the focus of all this ridiculous scrutiny and there's no way most fans will ever disassociate him from PEDs in the future.
But I can't help but feel a little bit of schadenfreude...ie, pleasure in your misery. About a month ago I posted about the David Justice reality show and how it was great to see a program about positive family values in America. You then pointed out that he must have beaten Halle, since, despite all the evidence to the contrary, "where there's smoke there's fire". People who think like that piss me off to no end and will never be convinced, even with a mountain of evidence.
I can't help but think Karma kicked your but on this one.
