Plea bargain? Is he cooperating?

Under the MLB drug policy, players who fail drug tests and do not win appeals are suspended for 50 games for a first offense, 100 games for a second and face a lifetime ban for a third. But because the Biogenesis investigation involved "non-analytical" evidence, in other words something other than a failed drug test, those penalties did not apply.

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

Statement from MLBPA executive director Michael Weiner regarding Ryan Braun

Quote:
"I am deeply gratified to see Ryan taking this bold step. It vindicates the rights of all players under the Joint Drug Program. It is good for the game that Ryan will return soon to continue his great work both on and off the field."

Quote:
‏@TJQuinnESPN 6s
Never gotten mail/messages from fans like I have from people in Milwaukee about Braun. They're going to be crushed. People believed in him.

T.J. Quinn ‏@TJQuinnESPN 2m
People keep asking me why Braun, why now: I don't know.

T.J. Quinn ‏@TJQuinnESPN 3m
If plan for other players is to attack Bosch's credibility, Braun just made that very difficult.

T.J. Quinn ‏@TJQuinnESPN 4m
Source tells OTL Braun was first player MLB was building a case against. A-Rod last. Initially decision was to announce all at once.

A-Rod will be a different story. MLB's case against him includes possibility he interfered with investigation. They'll go after him harder.

‏@TJQuinnESPN 29s
Source also tells OTL evidence provided about A-Rod is "far beyond" what Bosch gave them re Braun.

Can these teams recoup any money from the players? Shit, I wish Dan Uggla was on someone's list.

I think thats what the unpaid thing is all about, braun is probably owed one hell of a sum for the rest of the season that the brewers wont have to shell out now...glad MLB decided to do it to Braun this year. This season is lost and now we can all look forward to a fresh start in 2014

Pretty much a guarantee that you keep everything except what you lose in a suspension. You can bet your ass the Selig isn't going to the mattresses with the MLBPA. Everyone is making a lot of money and no one if going to cry over the Yankees bamboozling themselves into giving A-Rod all that money.

Yea I don't see what leg they'd have to stand on to recoup salaries already paid for work performed, cheating or not.

These guys would be so much better off being a man and accepting responsibility right off the bat. The always come off looking so much dumber the longer it drags out

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

This is a sports tragedy in Milwaukee... Braun is arguably the best player in the franchise's history, and short of guys like Lew Alcindor, Favre, Rodgers, Hank Aaron etc..., he's as big/accomplished a sports figure as you'll find in the state. Pretty sad, I particularly feel bad for kids who grew up watching him. And for roux... sorry brother.

Braun deserves whatever he gets at this point. Cancel the cooperstown plans. **** his cheating ass.

I actually do feel bad for the youngsters that idolized Braun. I just have to go back in time in my head to my youth watching Yount and Molitor and I feel good again.. these kids don't have that luxury

I know if it would have been Frank Thomas (who was my White Sox equivalent) I would have been absolutely crushed as a kid.

I can sympathise with this. Last year I was trying to figure out how to spike Josh Beckett's and Carl Crawford's samples so that they'd be suspended for the year. Then the Dodgers saved the day.

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

Not sure why there's so much animosity between R-Star and EH but take it somewhere else and stop getting off-topic. Thanks.

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

Deal with the matter, or where I'll be taking it is a differently titled thread for everyone to discuss.

Or are we just going to delete my posts pointing out that EH is blatantly breaking forum rules, just like 2 other posts (1 mod) already pointed out on page 1?

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

He's not breaking forum rules. That link (which apparently doesn't even work now) had a story about a few players being potentially suspended. Whether or not some posters chose to consider it a viable source of information is up to them. He's allowed to link to a story, though, even if it's a blog.
