I wish I could get $20-30,000 for "consulting". That payment is the smoke.... :roll: :roll: :roll:

My point is that I don't even see smoke here. The only "smoke" concerns the prior charge and positive test. And that's plenty of smoke for me. Braun's inclusion on Bosch's list because he consulted with Bosch about his appeal makes perfect sense and doesn't add to what we already know about Braun.


OK I'll try another homespun saying - "If you lie down with dogs you're going to get fleas".

I deal with consultants a lot. That's cheap, my friend.

I'm not a Braun fan. At all. But I have to say that his explanation actually seems pretty believable in this instance:

It's plausible.

I also deal with consultants quite a bit.

The issue here is that I pay substantial money to a highly thought-of and ranked consultant, but not to a low-level douchebag.

Bosch ranks with the latter, not the former.

LOL he had no story this time, just "no comment".

I have no idea why people choose to believe these guys excuses. If Lance can be taken down anyone can.

Braun already tested positive. This new evidence just corroborates what we already knew. But I do hope somehow enough evidence surfaces that he gets suspended.

It amazes me that guys like Braun, who already possesses enough talent to be a great player in the league would stoop to this level of cheating, thus removing any chance of post career accolades. At least players in the current watching players from the past being turned away.

I don't find it amazing at all. First of all, he didn't expect to get caught. Secondly, You're assuming he would still be a great player without the juice, but maybe he wouldn't be.

If it takes him from decent-to-good player to arguably top 5 player in MLB, then maybe it's worth it. Certainly financially.
