    I was noticing how many hipster doofuses Milwaukee has when I went to the game on Saturday. I have no complaints. In fact life goal #362 is now to get JJ Hardy back to Chicago for some beers the second the season ends.

    The average age of the brewers seems to be about 12.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    One last question: if people care so much about steroid use, why is Derrick Turnbow such a hero in Milwaukee? Like Bonds, Turnbow has never failed an MLB drug test, but unlike Bonds, he was suspended from a competition (2004 Olympic qualifying) for testing positive for a prohormone banned by by the World Anti-Doping Agency, one that was not illegal in the U.S. at the time.

    The situations aren’t entirely parallel, but I again argue that if we, as a society and as baseball fans, think steroid use is so evil as to make Barry Bonds a pariah, then where is the opprobrium for the players who have tested positive? Why can Turnbow be a hero when he has a positive test in his background?

    I can't help but think of the Newhart Show and Larry, Darryl and Darryl when I see Derrick Turnbow.

    I see Joe Sheehan's point, but Turnbow tested positive for an over-the-counter supplement similar to Andro. It's still legal in the U.S. and was not illegal in Major or minor league baseball at the time.

    Not a big deal, IMO.
    How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids

    He appears to be frighteningly "chin-less" in every picture I see of him....

    I think Derrick Turnbow had 43 saves for the Chico's Bail Bonds team.
    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.
