Found February 28, 2012 on Brewers Bar:
Let the Countdown to games being as we now stand 5 days shy of the 1st game of Spring Training against the San Francisco Giants.  I've avoided talking much about what the Brewers lineup and fielding will look like because we knew so little about what would happen to Braunie.  Well now we know and it's as good a time as any to try and construct what a potential Brewers lineup could look before a pitch is even thrown against the 2012 Brewers.The easier of the two lineups to come up with is vs. Right Handed pitchers and that's because Nyjer Morgan is a far better hitter against Righties than Carlos Gomez.  Some have wondered how the Brewers would use Braun without Prince hitting behind him, but Ron Roenicke has made his intentions quite clear on that matter.  So here is what I think you'll see the lineup look like.vs. Right Handers:1. Rickie Weeks 2B2. Nyjer Morgan CF3. Ryan Braun LF4. Aramis Ramirez 3B5. Corey Hart RF6. Matt Gamel 1B7. Alex Gonzalez SS8. Jonathan Lucro...

Maybe New York Yankees Alex Rodriguez respects Ryan Braun herpes

Let me be clear by stating that Alex Rodriguez has never said anything about Ryan Braun’s failed drug test having to do with him taking medicine for herpes. Of course A-rod wouldn’t because he knows better, as Derek Jeter would have failed way before Braun… right? Kidding again. But now to the point, as this Braun saga is getting annoying but I wanted to weigh in my opinion...

Braun should have quit while ahead

Turns out, The Collector has a name. And a reputation. And a story. The PR battle Ryan Braun lamented is raging anew. For this, he has himself to blame. I don't know if Braun knowingly used the synthetic testosterone that showed up in his October urine test. But he is guilty of a blatant refusal to quit while he was ahead. In the news conference that followed his successful...

Ryan Braun wasn’t lyin’ t-shirt

Ryan Braun is innocent…I guess. Milwaukee Brewer fans can’t be happier with the way Major League Baseball handled Ryan Braun’s test sample and the subsequent innocent verdict in his PED case. While there might still be questions out there as to what really happened, this T-shirt shows Brew Crew fans can really care less. The dude is innocent. Case closed.

Reaction to Braun case is symptomatic of a larger problem

Now that Ryan Braun has had his 50 game suspension overturned, we’re all left to wonder what exactly happened, why this information leaked in the first place (something I think is going egregiously overlooked), and how MLB will amend their process so that this doesn’t happen again in the future.  Additionally, we’re subjected to tired, knee-jerk “analysis” such as “Braun...

Braun’s a lucky bastard … or not!

Ryan Braun may have won his appeal of his 50-game ban, but his PED saga is still far from over as far as MLB is concerned.Milwaukee Brewers reigning NL MVP Ryan Braun is one lucky bastard … or is he?  Sure, Braun had his 50-game suspension overturned last Thursday by baseball arbitrator Shyam Das, but all that did was piss off Commissioner Bud Selig and the Major League Baseball...

Collector in Ryan Braun Steroid Case Denies Wrongdoing, Says He Followed Protocol

During Ryan Braun's news conference last Friday, the Milwaukee Brewers outfielder made a number of insinuations about the integrity of the MLB's sample collecting process and the specific collector who took his positive test sample. On Tuesday, a man revealing himself to be the collector of Braun's test, Dino Laurenzi Jr., sent an email to ESPN The Magazine to state his...

Braun Sample Taker Fires Back

((HT: Fox6now.com Milwaukee))The gentleman's name is Dino Laurenzi...And he isn't going to take being accused of a felony lightly...At his welcome back press conference, Milwaukee Brewers reigning Emm-Vee-Pee Ryan Braun basically intimated that Laurenzi was the one who tampered with both of Braun's samples to give the "false positive."On both... With exactly...

Ryan Braun’s suspension has been overturned, but the trial has just begun

While Ryan Braun’s suspension over a positive drug test has ended with it being overturned, I think everybody recognizes that his trial has only just begun. While the suspension being lifted was a boost to the Milwaukee Brewers, it probably would have actually been better for Braun’s reputation had he gotten suspended but for reasons

Collector in Braun case says he followed rules

A man identifying himself as the collector who took Ryan Braun's urine samples last fall said he followed the same protocol with the Brewers slugger as he had with hundreds of previous samples.

Collector of Braun's sample refutes allegations

Five days after Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun won his appeal of a 50-game suspension by blaming a faulty collection process, the collector of Braun's sample responded with a three-page statement.

No WMLW for Brew Crew in 2012

                   Do you hear that sound?  Yes it's much rejoicing from around Brewers Nation and no it's got nothing to do with Ryan Braun other than seeing him on your TV screen in a Brewers uniform.  That rejoicing you are hearing comes from the announcement of the full 2012 Brewers TV Schedule.  It was announced that 150 of teh 162 games will be carried...
