    He's been around long enough to have taken dozens of tests. He took them in the minors. He's taken them in the majors. He's been randomly tested and tested during the offseason.

    If you're going to insist that Braun was guilty as sin in 2011 (again, I don't care) and that it absolutely boosted his performance, it leaves you in the uncomfortable position of explaining why he's been awesome all the way back to college. Seriously, this guy would need to be pretty much the best and most precocious PED user ever to pull it off. Good luck proving that.

    The problem with damning Braun as a dirty player is you've got a lot of explaining to do. It requires an extensive narrative for which we don't have any evidence at this time. Brisco's one-time screw up suggestion at least makes sense, but then why keep kicking a dead horse?
