The Brewers could wear snow white uniforms, travel with a harp orchestra, and have angel wings and you'ld still hate them!
The only thing you ever hated more than them was Ronny Cedeno. :D
Am I that transparent?
Possibly, but I may have noticed only because I've been around your posts for 15+ years ;)

Yessir!! And, just to make your day a bit brighter, I am certain you are looking to 2025 when your hero, Ryan Braun, will be eligible for the Hall of Fame. I'm sure you will be rooting for him to be the 2nd unanimous selection!!

HAHA! I was unaware that there’s a Despicable Hall of Fame. Of all the guys whoever played Major League Baseball, he’s by far the one I despise the most. And it’s not close.

For me, there are several that are tied for the top spot, and Braun isn't one of them - Manny Ramirez, ARod, Clemens, Kevin Brown, Steve Garvey and Osdrubel Herrera top mine. Oh, almost forgot...Ralph Kiner.

My #1 would be Albert Belle.

I remember you mentioning an awful experience with Kiner that I think caught many of us by surprise.

I can understand you and others having strong negative feelings about the guys you mentioned. They did despicable things. But Braun was dislikeable immediately, and then what he did when he was accused of using PEDs, calling a press conference to deny the accusations, with his teammates there to support him, and then destroying the reputation of the guy who collected his specimen, was way too much for me.

By the way, how is it possible that every major league team isn’t playing here on Memorial Day? It’s awful that the Pirates aren’t playing today.
