Braun and the Cactus League: That Ish Cray

Another development in the Cactus League… this is starting to become a circus. Albert Pujols and CJ Wilson in Angels camp, Yoenis Cespedes an A, Manny being Manny, Matt Kemp being Matt Kemp, Josh Hamilton aka The Relapse, If the Yu Fits Darvish, and now Brewergate.

After all, he now has to pack for an extra 50 games this year. Congratulations, Ryan. Let’s show him what he’s won. A court case appeal on a technicality a full 162 game season. Yeah!

I’m honestly not hating on the guy. I could care less if he cheated. I just think it’s funny and all very convenient.

Let’s recap. The National League MVP tests positive for a elevated testosterone, which was 30x higher than normal. He plays for the team which is owned in part by the Commissioner of Major League Baseball. Suddenly his urine sample is carried home overnight by some random employee before being shipped to Montreal. Really? Montreal? MLB hasn’t had a team there for 8 years, but they do their drug testing there? That ish cray.

For the record Mark Attanasio is the current owner of the Brewers, the person that carried the sample home was not a Fed-Ex Driver (an employee of the MLB that was supposed to drop the sample off.)

you’re right. thank you for pointing that out.
