What the heck’s going on anyway? I tend to agree with Calcaterra’s viewpoint that possibly it’s just the anti-establishment getting their two cents in. Whatever it is, it’s not about baseball and it’s sure not about hero’s. Because, boy oh boy, if we ever needed one, hero I mean, we could sure use one about now. At least that’s my two cents worth.

Interesting from #Brewers COO Rick Schlesinger in the Milw J-S: Braun merchandise sales have actually increased since Monday.

Wait, no one reads newspapers anymore and Ryan Braun wouldn’t be gangster even if put a hit out on that urine collector. So never mind.
