Ryan Braun

Just after we posted an item on Von Miller, we have Ryan  Braun. If you remember, Braun contested a previous positive test and, for the first time in Major League Baseball’s drug testing program, beat the program due to irregularities in the shipment of the sample.

Now, Braun is busted after getting mixed up in the Biogenesis scandal. Braun agreed to a season-ending, 65-game suspension. The suspension is without pay and will cost Braun $3M in salary. Braun acknowledges “mistakes”.

Seeing that Braun is really a second-time cheater, do we even know if he’s ever been clean? And what kind of baseball player is he without using PEDs? He’s not having an MVP season for sure, and even major league baseball players had suspicions of him cheating.

I think its interesting how the Brewers signed Braun to a huge contract and didn’t have room for Prince Fielder. By all accounts, Prince Fielder is just a big guy and he hasn’t been caught cheating yet. Would the Brewers have made this choice if they knew Braun was cheating?

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
