"The truth has not changed" - Ryan Braun

That is a world-class non-denial denial.

Cano was tied to the Florida clinic a few weeks ago when the name of the spokeswoman for his foundation was discovered among the Biogenesis documents. MLB found no evidence of Cano's involvement in its initial investigation -- his spokeswoman had sought out an independent weight-loss consultation -- and there is no reason to believe that clinic director Anthony Bosch has told the league otherwise.
Keep trying to act like Cano is involved in this and is getting suspended. Hey maybe next time you can say Cano is gonna get suspended for 2 years!

Oh, let's see, the post that you objected to contained the list of all the guys that were the focus of a league investigation for possible steroid use, you angrily denounced it, and lo and behold it turns out the league is investigating the very same people and you're angry that the threads were combined.

Yours was not a list or about any of the other players. Your was a attack on the Yankees and then accusing Cano and Granderson. The post you merged was ALOT different from your attack that had no base

Funny this that this site downfall started when you and the other where made Admin..Hmm lets add 2 + 2

Cano's people were involved with this organization and MLB still hasn't decoded many of the names in the books. At this point there's a chance out there that he is indeed involved. Look at the sheer number of former Yankees involved in PED discussions, it wouldn't shock anybody to find out he was as well. Some of the nicest guys in the world have been PED users. It doesn't make me think less of him as a person... but he might be on that list under a code name.

I didn't "accuse" anyone of anything. The blogger that first broke the Melky Cabrera story broke another and I posted it. And sure enough months later all those guys turn up as part of a juicing investigation in which Pay Rod and Braun stand to be suspended 100 games as repeat offenders.

Re: MLB seeks to suspend A-Rod, Braun 100 games

Seems ridiculous to bust them for 100 games after one failed test that wasn't even a failed test. The Players Union will not allow this...no chance.

Oh it was a failed test all right. The "But little elves snuck in changed the sample!" defense never works twice.

Re: MLB seeks to suspend A-Rod, Braun 100 games

It was inevitable.

Edit: Was wondering why he didn't end up with 50 or 100 (though 100 was not going to happen), but apparently those rules in place did not apply in this case.

‏@TJQuinnESPN 53s
Sources tell OTL MLB confronted Braun with volumes of evidence provided by Tony Bosch, including texts.

Braun also threatened to sue over initial reports that he was connected to Biogenesis.

T.J. Quinn ‏@TJQuinnESPN 2m
When he failed his test, Braun initially said he was the "victim of a flawed process." Also suggested drug collector had been out to get him

T.J. Quinn ‏@TJQuinnESPN 6m
Braun (2): "I am willing to accept the consequences of those actions. This situation has taken a toll on me and my entire family..."

T.J. Quinn ‏@TJQuinnESPN 6m
Braun: “As I have acknowledged in the past, I am not perfect. I realize now that I have made some mistakes."

T.J. Quinn ‏@TJQuinnESPN 8m
No word yet on other players.

T.J. Quinn ‏@TJQuinnESPN 10m
Braun is not fighting suspension, which starts immediately. Apologizes to teammates, fans and team.

Based on rough calculations, it looks like Ryan Braun will lose $3.78 million due to his suspension.

I don't understand. We've been told for months that these things are 50 or 100 games and that players always appeal.

Plea bargain? Is he cooperating?
