It seems that Mr. Jack O’Connell, the secretary-treasurer and award administrator of the Baseball Writers Association of America says that the BBWAA will not strip Ryan Braun of the MVP award, in part because ”We did not strip Alex Rodriguez of the 2003 MVP when it was learned later he used PEDs while in Texas. The voters used the information they had at the time of the election. I don’t see how we can change that.”
Oh, so using that rationale, there should be nor more discussion of enlarging instant replay in baseball, because after all, we never have done it before, you know. No need to change any rules. Raise the mound. Get rid of the DH. Hey, while we are at it, let the baseball writers smoke cigars and drink beer in the press box. Yeah, things shouldn’t change, and if you have always done something the same way, you should always do it that way!
I have one word: DUMBASS!
Here’s what could cause that statement to be re-evaluated. Read this carefully and think about it:
Did Ryan Braun take the test BEFORE the voting occurred and were the results kept quiet while he took another test, and when the second test came back, had the voting taken place yet?
See, if a President of the United States is elected and it turns out he did something illegal in the election, there are mechanisms in place to resolve that issue – there’s the Supreme Court and there is Impeachment.
In criminal law, the statute of limitations may not toll if the criminal act has been deliberately hidden (not always true).
Was this hidden from the voters BEFORE they voted.
That’s the information I want to know…
Impeach Ryan Braun! Matt Kemp is MVP!
