  • Black Eye For Baseball



    Ryan Braun gets away with using PEDs and avoids 50 game ban.</P>


    I am a big Braun fan too, and I like the Brew Crew, but this is disgusting to me. He fails a drug test, blames it on something else, and since he won the MVP MLB didnt want to tarnish their title even more. Disgusting. </P>


    Im a huge baseball fan, but he got caught cheating and should have to deal with it. Not fair some can cheat and some cant. Manny shouldnt have to have his 50 game suspension now. In fact, give all the records back to McGuire and Barry Bonds. If cheating is now allowed, let em have it. </P>

    "I am very pleased and relieved by today's decision," Braun said in a
    statement. "It is the first step in restoring my good name and
    reputation. We were able to get through this because I am innocent and
    the truth is on our side.</p>

    "We provided complete cooperation
    throughout, despite the highly unusual circumstances. I have been an
    open book, willing to share details from every aspect of my life as part
    of this investigation, because I have nothing to hide. I have passed
    over 25 drug tests in my career, including at least three in the past
    year."</p>

    "It has always been Major League Baseball's position that no matter
    who tests positive, we will exhaust all avenues in pursuit of the
    appropriate discipline. We have been true to that position in every
    instance, because baseball fans deserve nothing less," Manfred said. "As
    a part of our drug testing program, the commissioner's office and the
    players' association agreed to a neutral third party review for
    instances that are under dispute. While we have always respected that
    process, Major League Baseball vehemently disagrees with the decision
    rendered today by arbitrator Shyam Das."</p>

    Braun didn't argue
    evidence of tampering, didn't argue anything about science being wrong
    but argued protocol had not been followed. A second source confirmed to
    ESPN investigative reporter Mark Fainaru-Wada that Braun did not dispute
    the science but rather questioned chain of custody/collection
    procedure.</p>

    According to one of the sources, the collector, after
    getting Braun's sample, was supposed to take the sample to FedEx/Kinkos
    for shipping but thought it was closed because it was late on a
    Saturday. As has occurred in some other instances, the collector took
    the sample home and kept it refrigerated. Policy states that the sample
    is supposed to get to FedEx as soon as possible. </p>

    Braun's initial
    T/E ratio was more than 20:1. And sources previously confirmed synthetic
    testosterone in his system. Source says MLB is livid and is considering
    options and other comment.</p>Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers
    tweeted in Braun's defense: "MLB and cable sports tried to sully the
    reputation of an innocent man. Picked the wrong guy to mess with. Truth
    will set u free #exonerated."




    Pretty crazy...

          so basically he got away with it because chain of custody was not followed? the sample was taken home and put in the fridge by the collector. Ok dumb question here, but the sample still showed synthetic testosterone correct? Is that because it was refrigerated? </P>


          </P>


          Because even if chain of custoday was not followed, the sample showed illegal substances. So through a technicality, he gets away with using a banned substance? </P>


          </P>


          Boy oh boy!!! I guess another athlete I root against and lose some respect in!</P>

                    lol!

                    At least for baseball, the cheating wasn't as rampid back then around a decade ago when players were popping the 40 HR plateau like cheap champagne at a party.

                        Cheating in ANY sport is more like it. If you dont think some of our Gmen are doing HGH or the next undetectable substance right now you are nuts. Personally, I think Braun was using something, and paid this guy off to mess with his tests. I could be wrong, of course, but he failed his test. Enough said. How did his testosterone spike 10x the normal amount by sitting in a basement for an extra 24 hours? Something very weird is going on to save face of someone, either Braun or MLB. </P>


                        This opens up a huge can of worms though.</P>

                              Im a Yanks fan, but if you do roids, thats it. If Pettitte can get busted, so can Braun. Arod is a different story. Lots of people hate Arod, and rightfully so. He has a huge ego and is just straight weird at times. </P>


                              Braun got off the hook because he is Ryan Braun. The media loves him and thinks he is a great guy. Just like Big Papi. He used steroids and his story got completely covered up. They were investigating it, right? Oh nah, he Big Papi! He is a cool fun guy. Lets let it slide. </P>
