Ryan Braun test positive for PED

Quote:
National League MVP Ryan Braun, who last season led the Milwaukee Brewers to their first division title in nearly three decades, has tested positive for a performance-enhancing drug and faces a 50-game suspension if the initial finding is upheld, two sources familiar with the case told "Outside the Lines."

Major League Baseball has not announced the positive test because Braun is disputing the result through arbitration.

National League MVP Ryan Braun, who last season led the Milwaukee Brewers to their first division title in nearly three decades, has tested positive for a performance-enhancing drug and faces a 50-game suspension if the initial finding is upheld, two sources familiar with the case told "Outside the Lines."

Major League Baseball has not announced the positive test because Braun is disputing the result through arbitration.

A spokesman for Braun issued a statement Saturday: "There are highly unusual circumstances surrounding this case which will support Ryan's complete innocence and demonstrate there was absolutely no intentional violation of the program. While Ryan has impeccable character and no previous history, unfortunately, because of the process we have to maintain confidentiality and are not able to discuss it any further, but we are confident he will ultimately be exonerated"

The 28-year-old Braun had to provide a urine sample for testing during the playoffs, and he was notified of the positive test sometime in late October -- about a month before he was named the National League's most valuable player.

The positive result was triggered by elevated levels of testosterone in Braun's system, the sources also told "Outside the Lines." A subsequent, more comprehensive test revealed the testosterone was synthetic -- not produced by Braun's body.

Big loss for Milwaukee. The NL Central is not having the best of weeks.

His legacy is permanantly destroyed, my team is just crushed without him and fielder, i am basically at a loss for words here.

On a side note, this is terrible news for MLB in general. Ryan Braun doesnt fit into the steroid/hgh stereotype, my personal assumption is that if a guy like Braun is dirty that this problem is still running rampant throghout the league. There are a hundred guys i would have guessed getting busted for PED's before Braun... i wouldnt be shocked in the slightest bit if there are many more of these guys cheating the system right now

Re: Ryan Braun test positive for PED

If the allegations are true will the league take back the MVP award?

Re: Ryan Braun test positive for PED

A very good source on the Ryan Braun side of the drug testing controversy assures me that Braun did not test positive for a performance-enhancing drug, as reported by ESPN's "Outside the Lines."

ESPN reported that Braun tested positive for a PED that gave him an abnormally high testosterone level, which proved to be synthetic and therefore not produced by the body.

But my source -- and again, this is from Braun's end and not MLB -- familiar with the test's findings says the "prohibited substance" was not a performance-enhancing drug or steroid of any kind. And the source says there has "never" been a result like this in the history of the MLB testing program.

The source said MLB "knows that Ryan is telling the truth" and firmly believes the postive test will be overturned. Pretty amazing stuff, huh?

The source said more detail couldn't be provided at this time because of the ongoing legal process. But suffice it to say that this is getting more interesting by the minute.

If the prohibited substance Braun tested positive for was a stimulant instead of a steroid, he wouldn't be facing a 50-game suspension. The first offense for stimulants results in a 25-game suspension.
I still dont think braun fits the mold of a PED user, this could be the first positive test overturned, Brauns reputation may never fully recover but i would feel better as a brewer fan

Re: Ryan Braun test positive for PED

He is going down the same path of every player that got accused of PEDs though. We're in the "It's something else that caused this" stage of this scandal.

Re: Ryan Braun test positive for PED

Honestly I hope it's not true. That's the Brewer fan part of me talking, but honestly if this true, than I'm with roux and having that crushed feeling because this is the last guy I expected to test positive for PEDs. I guess we will know either way soon enough.

Re: Ryan Braun test positive for PED

Yeah, I'm not even a Brewer fan and this felt like a gut punch, just knowing what he means to that team... I like Braun, and hope there is some reason to reasonably think he's not a cheater... I guess we'll see.
