Just give him a big hug. He's Don Zimmer ffs.
I had more of a problem with Manny acting like a big baby.

You're options are get beat up by an old man of your fiercest rival, run away from an old man on your fiercest rival, and discard old man on your fiercest rival. I know what I would have done.

Yeah, I'm pretty ambivalent about it now. Zimmer (why does that auto correct to Zimmerman?) felt awful about it. Really wasn't much Pedro could have done. I just think he's an ass.

If somebody's charging at me i don't care how old they are.

Pedro could have clocked him, he didn't he just put a swim move on and knocked the old fart over

I miss this. What option did Pedro have here? He made the right choice. Discuss.

absolutely made the right choice. dont get all tough guy on a dude that is gonna ragdoll you. Martinez gave him the charitable way out with a simple ole' maneuver. Some pitchers would have given him an eye jammy.

I'm watching "The Curious Case of Curt Flood" (2011) on HBO.
Highly recommended for a number of reasons.

Looks like a sort of "plea bargain" was struck, lucky for him.

Could have been far worse with the overwhelming evidence against him.

Next up, Alex Rodriguez!

I heard a long interview with Arhoid last week on WFAN....recent setback aside, he is ready to go the distance.

Spoiler:
He might be the insincere professional athlete I've ever heard.

Pretty calculated on his part to take the plea and be suspended for a wash year anyways when he's Been hurt and team has underperformed,

Pretty appropriate that "Royal Baby" and "Ryan Braun" are trending on Twitter at the same time.

“@TJQuinnESPN: Source also tells OTL evidence provided about A-Rod is "far beyond" what Bosch gave them re Braun.”

It is such BS that they let Braun take the suspension this year. He has been hurt so much anyway. I hope he never comes back.

Some people go to great lengths to defend themselves or their friends on Twitter. But perhaps Aaron Rodgers should have done some vetting before getting Ryan Braun’s back. Braun admitted Monday that he used performance-enhancing drugs and said he would accept punishment from Major League Baseball, which suspended him for the rest of the season. His admission has sent ripples throughout MLB, and most of the ripples have not been kind — Braun has vehemently denied PED use and had everyone from his teammates to Rodgers defending him against lingering accusations. Now, those folks are also taking flak for taking Braun at his word. Of everyone who defended Braun, Rodgers has to be in the funniest position. The Packers quarterback apparently believed Braun to the extent that he went on offense against the people piling on the Brewers slugger in recent years, calling them out and saying the allegations were “ridiculous.”

Rodgers even answered one Twitter follower who asked whether he really believed Braun didn’t use performance-enhancing drugs by saying he’d give up his salary if the allegations were true.


Pay up, brah.
