    I honestly don't see why it would. Why would the Brewers sit a player before he's suspended?

    You're not going to see teams bench players for a suspension until they have to.

    I was only being half-serious there. But there are actually a few reasons why you'd give someone like Braun the day off. One is to avoid the media attention before and after the game. Another is if he requested it for a sort of mental health day.

    FWIW, I saw earlier today that Braun was sitting out tonight because of a thumb issue but I can't remember who posted that on Twitter.

    I was trying to find a .gif of an umpire doing the thumb ejection signal for laughs. Fail.

    Looks like Bosch tried to get $ from A-Rod first, but got turned down. Only then did he go to MLB. Classy guy.

    If true, he should be arrested for blackmail. But not too classy to cheat and lie either. Mess with the devil and you might get burned lol.

    Re: Ryan Braun going down?

    In All Seriousness ... what about Melkey Cabrera? Is there any way he can say "yes i am on that list. yes i took those PED's. and Yes I got caught, but MLB already suspended me last year for that infraction. This would be double jeopardy."

    Yasmani Grandal and Bartolo Colon also say "hi".

    Check out the Jonah Keri Q&A Chip linked to above:

    Melky Cabrera, Colon, and Grandal have all already served suspensions for violations of the league's drug policy. Is this kind of double penalty covered anywhere in the Joint Drug Agreement? If not, on what grounds would the league propose to have a double penalty (i.e., 100 games for first-time offenders rather than 50) stick?

    This strategy could also become problematic. As Thurm explains, unless authenticated and verified Biogenesis documents link a previously suspended player to use, possession, sale, or distribution of PEDs separate from the drugs that had triggered earlier positive tests, a second suspension could amount to a second punishment for the same, initial violation. If MLB were to adopt the A-Rod–and–Braun approach, it could seek both the PED-use penalty and the lying penalty against Cabrera, Colon, and Grandal. All three have already been suspended once, and two more suspensions would equal three, which, according to MLB's drug policy, would trigger a lifetime ban. Since it's not at all clear if Cabrera, Colon, and Grandal violated the league's policy in an incident separate from the one for which they've already been nailed, there's an absurd scenario by which they could be forever stripped of their ability to play in the majors as a result of, essentially, a single transgression.
    How do we know he's not Mel Torme?
