Arbitrary Arbitration

bulgeA few months ago, reigning NL MVP Ryan Braun avoided a 50-game suspension for using performance enhancing drugs.

The problem?

The suspension was overturned in arbitration without a legitimate reason. Braun didn’t even attempt to say he was innocent; he instead worked to cast dispersions of the process, which in his case, appeared to be air-tight.

Now the arbitrary arbitrator has been released to spend more time with his family.

There’s this saying that’s often referred to: the integrity of the game.

When the integrity of the game is fixed in favor of the player’s union, there is no integrity. And we’re left with arbitrary reasoning.

Remember, the Marty Feldman-like eyes can be an early sign of PED use.


About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
