I'm not particularly interested in re-trying the Braun case. Say what you will about his legal strategy, it worked. And if your scenario is correct, then he used once, got caught, got lucky not to be punished for it and it ultimately made no difference. If that's the case then I've got no issue with Ryan Braun.
