    Bad Boy Brewers Powered by Pitching
The Milwaukee Brewers have been turning heads this season, leading the N.L. Central division, and becoming one of most hated teams for fuddy-duddies across the country. The return of Biogenesis poster boy Ryan Braun, and his continued success at the plate, has confounded fans who enjoy railing against PED users as much as they like cheering for the home team. Add in the continued antics of center fielder Carlos Gomez and the Brewers’ surprising early season success has traditionalists reaching for the nearest antacid.
Braun’s success shouldn’t be surprising given the incredible numbers he’s posted in his career. To assume that all of Braun’s prior success was entirely driven by PEDs is as silly as thinking that he’s currently 100 percent clean. Braun served his time and is back to bashing baseballs. He’s a joy to watch hit even if he is an admitted liar, cheater and jerk.

    Buck Showalter’s Hot Corner Dilemma
The Baltimore Orioles have been hovering around .500 in the early going of the 2014 season despite a shortage of power hitting and quality starts. The pitching figures to be a season-long concern but the home runs will come. The biggest problem facing manager Buck Showalter, at least over the next few weeks, is the club’s quagmire at third base.
Manny Machado, Baltimore’s All-Star third baseman and shortstop of the future, is about to begin a rehab assignment and could return to the lineup in early May. In Machado’s absence Showalter has been playing Jonathan Schoop, Baltimore’s second baseman of the future, at third. Schoop surprised club officials and fans with an impressive offensive showing in Spring Training and won the second base job. Since then the 22-year-old has been shifted to third base due to Ryan Flaherty’s continued offensive ineptitude and J.J. Hardy’s injury-plagued April.
