    Ryan Braun Wins Appeal

    Unbelievable. Selig needs to go NOW. Can't believe he got 31 votes to remain commissioner. Absolutely ridiculous.

    Ryan Braun wins appeal of 50-game suspension - ESPN

    Before people get ****** about this can we at least wait until Braun has a press conference to tell his side of the appeal?

    Wow, Im pretty surprised he won his appeal. I do not like this ruling being a Cards fan.

    I went to college thinking I wanted a career; turns out I just wanted paychecks.

    A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.

    MLB doesn't want one of its biggest names to miss 50 games. It really is as simple as that. I can't really blame them either.

    Don't count on it, rumor was he was taking some sort of STD medication.

    Most owners are making money hand over fist and baseball has never been in better shape fiscally. Money talks.

    As for Braun, I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt, but I'd like to know wth is going on. I'm assuming the herpes thing was actually legit.

    Not when he got busted. He was old and almost washed up. Plus he isn't nearly the fan favorite that Braun is.

    The MLB precedent continues, cheating is allowed. Unreal.

    Yup. I guess the Commissioner's Office decided the ravages of herpes would punish Braun far more cruelly than a suspension ever could...

    On a side note, does anyone else think it's kinda messed up that Bud Selig (former Brewers owner/lifelong Milwaukee resident) gets to decide on punishment for the Brewers? Just in the interest of appearness of impartiality, they should really set up a court-like system for this stuff.

    EDIT -- Nevermind. Just read that it was done by an arbitrator.

    Except MLB suspended him. An arbitrator overturned the ruling.
