Apparently Mike Minor has opened his mouth and pissed off Braves officials.

I don't know. I'm usually very skeptical about these roid/hgh guys whenever they deny things, but Braun seems very genuine in his denial. A lot more so than Clemens, ARod, Palmeiro, Sheffield, Ortiz, and all the others who've been in trouble with this sort of thing.

Also, why the apostrophe after the word "think"?
I don't know why I put the apostrophe to be honest. But I see where you are coming from. In my opinion when Braun spoke that speech sounded like it was to good to be true.

Of course Grady Sizemore has a back strain that might sideline him for the start of the season...

I don't give a fuck if Braun roided up. If he did, awesome. If he didn't awesome. This entire story line is beyond annoying to me.

Colby Rasmus has to be one of the most emotionally fragile players I've seen, especially with the shit he deals with about his dad.

id say he is off to a better start this year. last year he seemed so beaten down and secluded but he started off camp this year by listing all the things he hated about the cardinals. at least i hope that means he has prepared himself for a fresh start.

Has the media covered anything regarding his father? He sounds like a nut case with Colby. It got incredibly old as a fan hearing all of the shit going on with Rasmus then dealing with him not producing on the field. I was pissed about the trade at the time, but they wouldn't have a World Series championship without it so I'm fine with it now. I'm just glad I don't have to deal with reading about his shit anymore. Wouldn't be surprised if he never lives up to his potential.

another great read about the Braun situation http://www.chadmoriyama.com/2012/02/...-is-important/

also Will Carroll's article was fantastic too. Apparently, Braun and his team were able to replicate the test and show how it was so high
"Carroll’s information is not only relevant, but it’s monumentally important to the argument people are having over whether Braun case was overturned because of the chain of custody or because of doubts involving the actual sample. Carroll’s sources explain quite explicitly that their failure to keep up with the chain of custody caused a failure in the integrity of the sample. Then, not only was the sample’s validity questionable, but they were able to replicate the results and show how it happened. Thus, not only was it a failure in the process, but in the results as well.'

RT @AdamMcCalvy And here's another Greinke wrinkle: went to an ASU game last night with Counsell to scout a Draft prospect

sounds like a guy who wants to stay in Milwaukee to me

Craig: "Hey Zack, I'm going to the ASU game. Want to come?"
Zack: *stares straight back at him for seven seconds* "OK."
