Jay IMO you are looking for an argument that pretty much isn't there...
1. Braun should get zero praise right now. Zero. That is at least as we stand today.
2. Braun did not admit to anything. He did the end-around and here is word for word what he has said: "As I have acknowledged in the past, I am not perfect," Braun said in a statement. "I realize now that I have made some mistakes. I am willing to accept the consequences of those actions." That is a lame one and he is saying he realizes "now." Like he just woke up that day and goes "Wow you know what, MLB has opened my eyes I really did drug up during that playoff run. Wow I had no idea." That's juvenile.
3. Everyone is going to destroy Braun right now 50% because he used (the media's job) and 50% because he looks like such a fool for his previous actions (the public's job).
4. Braun is not one of the only ones to admit to usage. Although many were flimsy admittals, Mark McGwire now has, Brian Roberts has, Eric Gagne has, Rocker has, Knoblach has, Pettite has, Canseco has, the Giambi brothers have, Rick Ankiel has, Melky Cabrera has, ARod has, Sheffield has ('unintended usage') Wally Joyner has, and Bonds basically did under oath.
