Major League Baseball dropped the hammer down on Ryan Braun on Monday. He took it.
About 72 hours after a sudden season-long suspension, it is worth asking why no one else has felt the wrath.
After the latest hair-pulling moment between Alex Rodriguez and the Yankees front office, the infamous third baseman will be back in pinstripes tomorrow night when the Bronx Bombers take on the Rays.
The third baseman was supposed to have hip surgery last October, but didn't. He said he felt fine, but was anything but. He didn't trust the team's physician, so he didn't go.
But again, it has been three days since the Braun suspension. Rodriguez has not been suspended. And he is playing in a Yankee uniform tomorrow night.
Will he beat the system? Is it a matter of everyone just being fed up with A-Roid? He turns 38 this week. Will they let me go to greener pastures on his own?
***Knowing my luck, he'll get his suspension today or tomorrow.***
