Braves won 7-1 in 14 innings last night. How often does a team win by 5+ in extras?

Ryan Braun, who has repeatedly denied using performance-enhancing drugs, refused to answer questions during a recent meeting with Major League Baseball about his connection to Tony Bosch and the Biogenesis clinic in Miami, sources told "Outside the Lines."

The meeting took place June 29, a source said, and is one of several that MLB has conducted with players connected to the clinic. A source said Alex Rodriguez has not been interviewed, but a meeting is expected to take place within the week.

Commissioner Bud Selig's office is expected to suspend Braun and Rodriguez, along with as many as 20 players sometime after next week's All-Star break, several sources told "Outside the Lines." As OTL reported, MLB started building cases against the players last month after Bosch agreed to cooperate with investigators.

The question is the length of the suspensions.

Sources said the commissioner's office was considering 100-game bans for Braun and Rodriguez, the punishment for a second offense, even though neither player was previously suspended for violating MLB's drug policy.

So what will Arod's response be? Smugness, arrogance, tears, complete denial? All of the above?

Hire a legal team to make sure the contract sticks...and hopefully smugness.

"I have to continue to be patient. I had good work before the game, good work now after the game. I just have to keep going through the process," Rodriguez said after his fifth rehab game and his third with the Tampa Yankees. "My focus again is on what happens before the first pitch and after the last pitch."


Doesn't that mean that his focus is on everything except for the game?

I can't wait for a year from now when there's yet another discussion on what the Yanks should do with Arod as he's coming of suspension. And I can't wait to hear Arod say how much he loves baseball, his teammates, the Yankees, and himself. But most of all I can't wait to hear Cashman tell him to shut the f up again.

How do the contracts work?
Could they banish a healthy Arod to AA next year and hope that he eventually retires?

Nope. He has enough service time to refuse a designation to the minors. They can just bench him though. Or they can just cut him and pay him.

On a side note, I find it kind of funny that .227 was enough to get DFA'ed two years ago.

So Tim Lincecum just threw a no-hitter. ESPN showed the ninth inning live. On the 27th out, with two strikes, as he's in the windup, my feed cuts out for a weekly Allegheny County test of the emergency alert system, only to come back to the Giants celebrating 30 seconds later. Wow.

In a fun twist, I benched Lincecum for Bailey 2 weeks ago and did the reverse this weekend #nohitterwhisperer

Since when do non-all stars get into the home run derby? Has this always been a thing? Not that I disagree with it, they should just take the top 8 home run hitters in baseball or if you prefer the top 4 in each league.

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