Making his debut with the Brewers, Gonzalez got hit with the loss by allowing three runs without recording an out in Milwaukee's 8-4 loss to Colorado. In a box score it looks like a rough outing, but all he had was rough luck. Coming on in a tie game, Gonzalez walked Dexter Fowler to start the seventh inning.

Ryan Braun – Is he a keeper?

Well, I guess that’s too late to figure out now. I traded him for Steven Strasburg. Sure, Braun was named the 2011 National League Most Valuable Player. However,Strasburg was named the Nationals’ Opening Day starter. Sure, he may (or may not) have a pitch count but Ryan Braun was … connected to the Biogenesis scandal. I did not want to hedge my bets. You are talking to the...
