As Long As We're Talking Baseball...

I find it interesting that the official auction page on is continuing to offer a recent Ryan Braun authentic game-worn jersey for sale and has listed it, unlike others, with a relatively-high "reserve," or minimum price that an opening bid of $500 didn't meet.

Other Brewer team jerseys are listed with non-reserve opening prices of $200.

I saw an item about the Braun jersey earlier today on, but now I can't find it.

Here is the auction page and a shot of the Braun jersey.

"The proceeds from each jersey will go directly to Brewers Community Foundation to benefit the Yesterday's Negro League Baseball Players Foundation and the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City."

Why would they pull the auction if the money's going to charity? There are MLB players still playing who have done much worse off the field than what Braun may have done to improve himself on the field. If there's still a market for the jersey, the money will do some good.

For the same reasons that serial killers and murderers in prison get multiple marriage proposals in the mail.

Wait until Matt and Alex get a little older and realize what a liar and fraud dear old dad is turning out to be. Talk about disappointment and lack of forgiveness going on for a long time.

Who are Matt & Alex?

Braun doesn't have any kids.
