Impeach Braun

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!

    From what I’m hearing, it was not a PED but rather another banned substance. You going to take away his birthday if he smoked a funny cigarette?

    I believe there is a precedent in the NCAA taking away Reggie Bushs’ Heismann and vacating the award for that season.

    D-Day for Loney, Kuo and Gwynn

      Michael,

      If isn\’t not a PED, then I\’d let him slide, but MLB doesn\’t have the balls to strip him of the award.

    Not not strip him of the award — but they COULD place an * after a year when an award was given that, that player tested positive for something (what ever). This would tell all people that the guy cheated in some way, and arrived at his stats and performance of that season with “help.”

    Who’s the dumbass now?

    • DodgerDude says:

      It’s still you, dude. This is the first time EVER that a positive drug test was overturned.

      But, Mark said that they were dumbasses because they said they couldn’t strip Braun of the Award even if he lost his appeal?

      So, you are still the BIGGEST DUMBASS because you can’t even read English!

      Just shut up and go away!
