The Ryan Braun story and winter meetings winners and losers

By now, you surely know that Ryan Bruan has failed a test for illegal performance-enhancing drugs and is appealing the ruling. 

Braun's spokesman, Matthew Hiltzik, gave me the same statement this morning that he gave to ESPN yesterday.

Not much to discuss at the moment, but this surely will be a big story for a while. We'll talk about it more as more information comes in.

--Here are my winter meetings winners and losers.

--Self-promotion alert: I'll be on "Sports Xtra" at 10:30 tonight, on Fox 5 in New York, with Duke Castiglione. There'll be plenty to discuss, needless to say.

--Have a great day.
