    Was the walk off celebration in foul territory or on the diamond?

    they basically felt he should shut up and play and not worry about which stadium configuration will help his personal stats
    Braun (and when he was here, Prince Fielder) have been complaining about the sun shining in the batter's eyes for about 3 years now. The Brewers have kept one half of the roof half-closed for about 2 seasons now. I don't know what you're whining about now. It's the same situation for both teams. It's not like they're opening or closing the roof just when Braun comes to base.

    from my own view, I thought he was a little show boating when Bumgarner, who had dominated the Brewers all game, was left in the 8th inning with 2 outs and then there was an error (most everybody thought Bochy should have brought in Romo), he had handled Braun easily all day then hung a 1-2 slider, the really only bad pitch he threw all game and Braun jacked it out for a 2 run game tieing homer (the Giants won in extra innings), but Braun did a real celebration before he even left the batters box. I though it was pretty bush but I really dont like him anyway
    But, as you say, you don't like Braun, so whatever he does, you don't like. I'm sure Braun could give $100,000 to charity and you'd find something to complain about it. Sounds to me like you're just butt-hurt that Bumgarner didn't completely shutout Braun.

    Oh boy, here we go again.

    Once you are linked to steroids, especially by a positive test, you are pretty much "tainted" forever.

    As it should be.

    No. Not even close.

    I thought I heard or read somewhere when Braun got off, that the arbitrator was going to submit a written report, detailing exactly what happened that led to his decision to overturn the suspension, and that the report would be made public. Instead, the arbitrator was fired, and the report has never surfaced, to my knowledge.

    He'll never be vindicated, even if he is playing clean now.

    I doubt if he will be vindicated during his playing days.

    Braun was a very good player who got caught using a banned substance and got off on a technicality. However well he continues to play vindicates nothing.
