Re: Ryan Braun going down?
All OPINIONS aside, nobody here has been put in the situation these guys are put in.
Nobody can know what they would do when families, charities, academies, personal money, ego, compitition and the internal drive to win all come into play. Without being in these guys shoes it's easy to point a finger and make them into "bad guys". Plus, as has been pointed out, none of them are Reds so nobody has had their homerism tested yet either.
Not to mention the hypocrisy of the MLB. Use these guys to bolster popularity during a downtime and then use the same guys for a witch hunt when they get called for it? Pretty lame. If left unchecked the MLB would have never started an internal investigation on PEDs.
For me, I really don't care. If someone wants to possibly trade their health for my entertainment, I say "go for it". I love the 40-40 club. I love the 500 ft homerun.
