MLB seeking suspensions of 100 games for Braun, A-Rod, and as many as 20 others after Bosch cooperated with officials. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy. :lol:

A rod is a prima Donna. I hope no pirates are on that list. Agree, f Braun!

The most shocking thing about this news story is that ESPN actually did some actual reporting.

This should cover them for the next 10 years.

Now back to 24/7 Sawks/Yanks and Tebow talk.

DISCLAIMER: I have Yasmani Grandal on my 30-team fantasy league and therefore have some pretty selfish reasons for saying...

---

It seems 'wrong', or at least 'inaccurate', to call this a 'third strike' for Grandal. How do we know this wasn't the same incedent that he was already suspended for?

Unless there is evidence enough otherwise and/or if this is found to be a separte incident, at worst he should just get a 'second strike' and 100-game suspension.

Fair enough considering the circumstances.

And Dwight/the Lakers.

And Peyton Manning.

And the Penn State scandal.

And, hey, ESPN broadcasts Soccer, why not act like it's a BIG deal? SOCCER! YEAH!

The NBA Finals haven't started yet and Tebow has no interest from any NFL team, ESPN had a few 'reporters' available to report on other news.

Also, this is funny for two reasons.

I was literally just thinking of posting about how:
1. It's insane that A-Rod is only ranked 90th all-time on BR.com. At one point when I was looking him up he was ranked like 140 or something, behind Ellis Burks. ELLIS !@#$%^& BURKS. Now maybe it's accurate. All the talent in the world can't make up for these levels of douchebaggery.
2. After reading about the Cubs' Pitchers hot May at the plate (via Grantland and then again by JC's post), that the Cubs have a bright future. Of course, as do the Bucs and the Reds and Cards are always solid. But the Brewers... they're barren. They shot their wad the last decade. Their future is Braun and then...? Even WITH Braun, they're probably going to be the cellar dwellars of the NL Central. Without him? Yikes.

It's a good thing their pitching staff is such a disaster because, while there is obviously a big drop off after whoever hits clean-up after Braun, the line-up is still pretty optimistic. Segura is making the Greinke trade look pretty good on their part and Aoki is looking nice at the top of the order. Granted Carlos Gomez could always regress is a pretty drastic fashion. I could still see them finishing ahead of the Cubs this year. I guess we'll get to see how a Braun-less team looks like we originally anticipated we'd see two years ago.

It'd be great if this turned into a real-life rendition of:

Melky was the least surprising, even more-so than Braun.

About damn time!

And if you're a soccer hater, they're about to the Spanish La Liga, which will give them two of the big four soccer leagues.

I enjoy Soccer (even MLS!).

What I don't enjoy is ESPN acting like anybody in the U.S. cares about it on par with the 'big four' sports.

Er... big THREE since ESPN doesn't acknowledge NHL until the playoffs. :roll:

At least soccer players never fake bone-jarring contact from a butterfly-esque brush with another player, of fake injury, or lay on the field waiting for a stretcher only to run back onto the field 30 seconds later ...

Wait ...

Favorite non-major 4 sport? Australian Rules Football. Two soccer players watched a match on television and were so traumatized by what they witnessed that they had to be carried off on stretchers.

Insane to think about A-Rod 10 years ago, and where he is now. The rest of his career means exactly nothing, the guy is tarnished forever. As if the injuries and declining and contract weren't bad enough, now this comes out. He might as well just retire on top of his millions and millions.
