This article explains pretty well why he is such a POS:
http://www.slate.com/articles/sports...but_there.html

"If you test positive and get suspended, then it’s standard procedure to explain away your absence from the field by passing the blame to someone else. If you test positive and don’t get suspended, then you should accept your good fortune and keep your mouth shut. Instead, Braun decided to run up the scoreboard on his ill-gotten victory"

This is costing Braun 3.5M. I wish he'd go back to lying, I just had to dump him off my fantasy roster.
It was as good a time as any to take a suspension. His thumb is nagging and the Brewers aren't going anywhere.
I think 3.5M and 65 games is a bit overdone, but being as he already skated once, he had it coming and I think it's fair. It may be a bit too big a penalty for other guys who haven't had any history of this kind of stuff, if there are any. I haven't looked at the list yet, but I will in a few minutes here...

Really? They only suspended Braun? Oh, brother.

The Detroit Tigers added some help for their shaky bullpen Monday, acquiring reliever Jose Veras from the Houston Astros

I heard the Rangers might be willing to sell high on Joe Nathan. The Tigers need to win right now. This year or next, for sure. If there's anything left in the coffers, they need a closer. Period.
With Smiyley and Veras, they're on the way. One more piece and they have a good shot.
I wish I knew what happened to Valverde. He's either lost his mojo completely or he's hiding an injury and he's a wrap. Regardless, I never see him becoming effective again. It's a shame.

I would be shocked to see the Rangers make that deal with an AL contender, but I guess anything for the right price, eh Scott?

As a Rays fan, I am not an Ortiz or Red Sox fan. I think that he should be fined for that outburst in the dugout. What do you guys think? I just think he gets a pass cause he's big papi. He was tied to steroids but swore it wasn't him and everyone dropped it. Any other player do what he did and I think it's a fine.

If the team wants to fine him, cool. I don't think the League should get involved.

I don't know where the Rangers sit right now, but if they've decided they can't make a run at the pennant, anything can happen. Lots of trades don't make much sense nowadays, they seem a lot more economics driven than competition driven.

They are 6 out, Scott, but right in the thick of the Wild Card race.

Does any one including people in Tampa show them any love? They can't even sell tickets during the playoffs, best shop for some love elsewhere.

Nice call at home plate in the TB / RS game .. god that guy is a hack. Two game swing because of that bad call.

Quote:
Meals admitted his error to a pool reporter after the game.

“What I saw was: [Jose] Molina blocked the plate and Nava’s foot lifted,” Meals said. “But in the replays, you could clearly see Nava’s foot got under for a split second and then lifted, so I was wrong on my decision. From the angle I had, I did not see his foot get under Molina’s shin guard.”
WEEI reporting that Lee and Young close to being traded to Boston, hope this doesn't cost us heavy in prospects.

Breaking news..... In a three-way,José Iglesias from Boston to Detroit, Peavy to Boston, Detriot sends Chicago their best prospect. Heard this from a friend a few minutes before it started hitting the wires, he never let's me down.

The only thing that could make this better is if MLB suspended Afraud for this year and next, but not lifetime so they MFYs still ahd to pay him.

Looks like there are 2 or 3 more prospects coming from the Red Sox but not sure who or where they are going.

I really think Detroit got the better end of this deal. With Peralta getting up there in age, Iglesias is the perfect back-fill to their SS issue. Even though Peralta is having a killer year, the Biogenesis issue is looming over him. I really can't believe Boston gave him up.

Now if Detroit could trade Iglesias to the Rangers for Joe Nathan, they'd have something.
Granted, they can use Iglesias, but that's not what's gonna make them win this year or next, which they need to do before their owner passes.
Once Ilitch is gone, anything can happen to the Tigers. None of it likely to be good.

Whether the Rangers would sell to the Tigers is another thing, but they want a bat. Bad.

Iglesias is insurance for this year and the future SS for years to come. Peralta is on the list likely to be suspended. He's also on the last year of his deal. Tiger's couldn't take the chance of getting stuck with Danny Worth as their starting SS on a WS run.

I love both moves. Gacria is going to be a good player for Chicago. Deceptive speed for his size and a good bat.
