If Commissioner Bud Selig believes that singling out Braun, giving him soft punishment to try and encourage deals with the other offending players, is going to give the public at large the feeling that the sport is taking a hard line against these drugs — he’s a fool.

Thanks to Hoosier Park last Saturday for giving me a fourth opportunity to drive in a celebrity race at the track. Thanks also to Joe Putnam for being a great co-pilot and for letting me take the reins for more than half of the race.

I was able to lead for a while down the backstretch before settling back into the No. 2 hole. Coming down the home stretch, several horses went wide and passed me as I bided time on the rail. Eventually the horse in front of me drifted out a bit and gave me the opening for which I was waiting. I ended up third. It was great fun, and I’d do it again if asked.

No, four years and $58 million is too much
Not sure, I like Hibbert but think the money could be better spent elsewhere
