Let's first begin by saying that the Ryan Braun situation is a serious one. The Milwaukee Brewers star lied about using performance-enhancing drugs, has finally come clean with an admission, and now faces a lengthy suspension.
But Miami Marlins outspoken slugger Logan Morrison provided some comic relief and perhaps the best reaction of the breaking news on Monday with the following quote:
Logan Morrison: "You know we're clean. We haven't scored a run in 37 innings." #marlins #braunThat's right, folks.

Entering Monday, the Marlins had gone 37 straight innings without plating a single run. That is offensive futility at its finest.
Fortunately for Miami, the streak came to a merciful end Monday night, as the Fish scored two runs in the top of the first to finally put some crooked numbers on the scoreboard.
