(USA Today)   I'll catch this player for you, but it ain't gonna be easy. Not like going down the park chasin' weightlifters and cyclists. I'll find him for 3, but I'll catch him, and suspend him, for 10. For that you get the hat, the bat, the whole damn thing   (usatoday.com) divider line 33

FTA: "The result so infuriated MLB officials they fired Shyam Das, the arbitrator who ruled in his favor."

Huh?  They get to fire guys who rule against them?

They hired him in the first place...so ya.

And?  The article makes the investigation sound like a witch hunt, I just tried to make a funny headline.

//Personally, I hope they overturn every single rock they possibly can and find nothing, but if they find something definitive, I will be the first to say Braun should be suspended.  Then, once his suspension was over, I would continue hoping he does well for the Brewers.  I also think Barry Bonds should be in the HoF, so your opinion may vary.

Hank Aaron's in the hall, so there's absolutely no precedent for keeping cheaters and dopers out. There's almost a century of it for gamblers.

The defenseman slammed the wing's head into the glass, Chief. We was comin' back from a 3-2 deficit. We'd just delivered the game-tying goal. The goal that made it 3-3. Five skaters went out onto the ice. The clock went down in 12 minutes.  Didn't see the first hit for about a five minutes. A goon. Six-footer. You know how you know that on the ice, Chief? You can tell by lookin' from the stick to the skates. What we didn't know, was that our our attempt to win was so unlikely, no fourth-line had been sent. They didn't even list them in the lineup. Very first faceoff, Chief, goons come cruisin' by, so we formed ourselves into tight groups. It was sorta like you see in the calendars, you know the blule line faceoffs in the old NHL Network footage and the idea was the goon come to the nearest man, that man he starts poundin' and hollerin' and sometimes that goon he go away... but sometimes he wouldn't go away.  Sometimes that goon looks right at ya. Right into your eyes. And the thing about a goon is he's got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll's eyes. When he comes at ya, he doesn't even seem to be livin'... 'til he slams ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then... ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin'. The ice turns red, and despite all your poundin' and your hollerin' those goons come in and... they rip you to pieces.  You know by the end of that first period, lost three men. I don't know how many goons there were, maybe a thousand. I do know how many men, they averaged one an hour. Second period, Chief, I bumped into a friend of mine, Sidney Crosby from Pittsburgh. Hockey player. Boson's mate. I thought he was asleep. I reached over to wake him up. He bobbed up, down on the ice, he was like a kinda top. Upended. Well, he'd been ripped in half below the waist.  Three minutes into the third period, a kid from the minors swung in low and he spotted us, a young center, lot younger than Mr. Ovechkin here, anyway he spotted us and a few hours later a big ol' fat stretcher come down and started to pick us up. You know that was the time I was most frightened. Waitin' for my turn. I'll never put on a helmet again. So, twenty-four men went onto the ice. Four men come out, the goons took the rest, March the 19th, 2013.

Anyway, we delivered the game winner.

The Black Sox and Rose are banned from baseball, which makes them ineligible and I can't argue against that.  Now if you argue that they should be reinstated to baseball, and then immediately in the HoF, I totally agree.

I thought the way the author framed the investigation was stupid, not that Braun is being investigated along with the other players known to be in the clinic's ledger, but that is difficult to convey in a tag.

Mr. Selig...what we're dealing with here is a perfect engine, a home run machine. It's really a miracle of evolution. All this machine does is dope, eat, and hit home runs, and that's all.

And that's why arbitration is ALWAYS skewed in favor of one of the parties - the party that pays for the arbitrator.  Because if they don't like the result they can just refuse to ever hire that arbitrator again (fire him) and that can be a significant financial impact.  It's a farking miracle the arbitrator ruled in Braun's favor, so the evidence must have been pretty damn overwhelming (or in the case of MLB completely lacking).

So when you sign up for a service contract that requires "binding arbitration" like a phone, credit card, software license, and pretty much everything else these days, know that the company you're buying from also pays the arbitrator and will fire them if the arbitrator thinks you're right.
