I was firing up the grill and freezing my back end off last night when I heard Ryan Braun tested positive for a "banned substance".
Here's what it says on MLB Traderumors: "Braun, 28, was tested during the playoffs and notified of the positive result in late-October. Elevated levels of testosterone in Braun's system triggered the positive test, which promptedMLB to ask the testing agency to perform a second test. The second test determined that the testosterone was exogenous, meaning it was produced outside of Braun's body."
I'm traveling again so I don't have alot of time, but man - if this is true?
What happens to the MVP award?
What happens to the Brewers' first 50 games without Braun and probably without Prince Fielder?
Lastly, you've heard me rail about legal issues, and certainly I'm not an expert.
But if I'm an owner and I have an employee that I just gave a $141 million dollar contract, and said employee gained this contract by cheating, well...
Probably an internal issue, right?
Whatever, man what a bombshell.
He's going to appeal of course.
We'll see what happens with the best player on Bud Selig's favorite team.
ps: I believe that gif was my first.
I kinda like it.
