He should just argue that they confused his sample with Ryan Braun's

Re: Melky Cabrera tests positive for testosterone; suspended 50 games

This is going to disappoint all of his fans in the Braves dugout. No, actually they shall likely laugh out loud. It seems like when Melky left the ATL all of his friends on the Braves roster went with him.

I'd guess the Dodgers fans will not cry too much over this either.

So that's how he was hitting .350... Would be interesting to see him come back in the NLCS after all that time off. , Dodgers better not choke away the division now.

Testosterone is not a steroid

Re: Melky Cabrera tests positive for testosterone; suspended 50 games

Quote:
Testosterone is a steroid hormone from the androgen group and is found in mammals, reptiles,[1] birds,[2] and other vertebrates.
Quote:
It is the principal male sex hormone and an anabolic steroid.
The term Anabolic Steroids usually refers to artificial drugs which mimic the effect of naturally occurring Testosterone. If you get caught with excess Testosterone it is almost certainly because of PED use. The purpose of a PED is most usually to produce excess Testosterone that would then be used for muscle development in a person who engaged in strenuous physical training....i.e a pro athlete

At least Melky didn't make excuses or blame mishandled sample.

However, unlike Melky, Braun's numbers have remained consistent.
