    the story appears to be the guy in charge of shipping off the cup o piss thought FedEx was closed since it was late on saturday and kept it in his fridge over night instead. broke protocol so the results have to be thrown out, apparently.

    Braun will probably hold a press conference when he arrives at spring training. I imagine his best strategy is to go through it all once and then say "okay guys, now I'm going to play ball." Years later, whatever really happened will inevitably leak out.

    Apparently Major League Baseball vehemently disagrees with the arbitrator's decision. Which is strange because Braun getting his name cleared is great for the sport. Looking forward to seeing how this plays out.

    I cannot explain how much I hate this fucker. Its bad enough he's a grown ass man who gets babied like a bitch. It's bad enough his bible thumping ways give him a pass with the local yokel fucks, and then he brings his bible to a press conference about his contract. I hope a Bus with a Tim Tebow ad on it hits this asshole and makes the world a better place.

    I honestly don't understand why his latest relapse was a newsworthy event. He didn't do anything illegal, dangerous, or even embarrassing. It's a personal issue that, for whatever reason, he decided to also make public.

    If I were the Rangers, I'd be hesitant to extend him, too. More because of injury history than personal history.

    Hey, if he were still with the Yankees, he'd probably be okay since the injury occurred during BP. The video is horrendous.

    Extra wild card teams, playoff game agreed upon. Here are the details.

    Also, to make things extra stupid, the 2012 schedule will require a return to the hated, asinine 2-3 format for first round (or is it second round now?) series. Also, if you are an AL team and you happen to play the full five games in the first round in 2012, well fuck you, you're playing game 1 of the ALCS the next day.

    well, with the addition of another wild card team/one game playoff, winning the division actually becomes much more important than it has been since the addition of wild card teams.

    this scheduling is only in effect for this upcoming season. 2013 will return to the 2-2-1 schedule.

    There is a great article on how over the years if the playoffs had this many teams most would of been above 90 wins. I like the add especially since it keeps a shitload of teams in the hunt in sept. This will make the end of the season very exciting and crossing my fingers the cubs the cubs fall into the playoffs with our torrid team.

    Whoever bats in front of and behind Pujols is going to see a lot more quality pitches to hit and their numbers should definitely improve. I'm expecting Wells to have a bounce back season and possibly bat 4th in the lineup at some point.

    I'm so excited for baseball season. I've been a lifelong Angel fan and have had to deal with a lot of mediocrity over the years. With Pujols added to the lineup and the stacked pitching staff I'm thinking World Series or bust this year.

    Halos just gotta get through the fucking Rangers first.

    Wait, What? Yankees Sign Andy Pettitte
    That cannot be correct. Alas, it is true. According to Jack Curry of the YES Network, the Yankees signed long-time starting and guy who hasn’t pitched since 2011 Andy Pettitte to a minor league deal, worth a reported $2.5 million.

    Crazy. More to come.
