Ryan Braun "Juiced"? Here's an Idea

With this weekend's revelation that Ryan Braun was found guilty (not guilty?) of using performance-enhancing drugs, the interwebs were abuzz as to whether or not to strip the 2011 National League MVP of his award.

While that would probably make the Matt Kemp fans out there happy, it's probably not likely to happen.

Less likely to happen...the suggestion by Arizona Senator John McCain via Twitter.

Ryan Braun juiced - can we do the playoffs over again?

The one-time anti-steroids crusader might be on to something, though.

I mean, if it wasn't for Braun batting .500 (9-for-18) in the Milwaukee Brewers' best-of-five series against the Arizona Diamondbacks...there's no telling how the rest of the season would have played out.  Heck, if they could have gone on to beat the eventual World Champion St. Louis Cardinals, it could have meant another trophy for the snakes.

You remember the last time McCain's beloved Diamondbacks hoisted the trophy, right?  It was 2001 and on that team...current coach Matt Williams and team favorite Luis Gonzalez who were both suspected of, wait, nevermind.

Ugh.  Steroids.  Next topic please.
