Ryan Braun And The Five Stages Of Grief: Bargaining

We were in denial on Monday and got angry yesterday, so it's time to move on to the next step, bargaining.

Admittedly, it's a little harder to write something about this concept than it was to discuss denial or anger. With that said, there have been conversations that can be used as examples over the last few days. In yesterday's anger thread, for example, a discussion broke out wondering if Braun would rather be suspended for using performance enhancing drugs or publicly admit to having an embarrassing medical condition. (That conversation stemmed from pure speculation, by the way, not a statement about Braun potentially having a disease.)

I'd rather not have another conversation about that today, but I will ask this: What would you give to have this whole situation go away, and have the Brewers open the 2012 season at full strength with Braun in left field?

Just like yesterday, before we start I need to remind you that the rules laid out in the BCB Omnibus Posting Guide still apply here. If this thread devolves into namecalling or shouting matches, I reserve the right to close it down and spend the rest of the day dealing with a different kind of grief.
