Breaking news..... The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is reporting that Ryan Braun has won his appeal against the 50 day suspension. Move him up your draft boards.

From all reports he beat the rap by a technicality. Not exactly the perfect outcome for baseball fans, but it's great for us Braun fantasy owners! Especially for guys who drafted him in the later rounds! It'll be interesting to see all the info that comes out from this.

Anyone who passed on Braun before, traded him away, etc etc drafted WAAAYYY too early. We all know (from experience) that alot can happen and change between now and the start of the season (see Wainwright, Adam). They haven't even played spring games yet! Thats why you wait to draft until a week or two before the season.

Yes but depending on how you draft and your preparation, you can come out on top.

I for one would not draft Braun at all until this news broke. Only 100 games sans roids = a lot less stats. Appeals are virtually always lost. I didn't know he was appealing on a technicality.

Saying "its too early" and "anything can happen til season starts" won't change the fact that those that got him in round 5-7 got a bargain. They gambled and they won. Bigtime. Even sans roids, you're probably getting a Rnd 2 quality player (or better) 3-4 rounds later.

That's why gambling exists ya know. Because sometimes people win.
Else why go to a casino? Just make a check to your favorite charity.
I love mock drafts.
