Ryan Braun and PED's
 
http://espn.go.com/espn/otl/story/_/...enhancing-drug

This year's NL Mvp has been linked to steroids/hgh, I'm shocked.

Melrose Munch 12-10-2011 07:09 PM

I'm not.

He's a thug.

Yet people claim MLB>NBA.

Epictetus 12-10-2011 07:11 PM

Will wait till a real source clarifies.

Avs_19 12-10-2011 07:12 PM

Braun denies it and will appeal.

This is terrible if true.

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.

Every individual naturally produces testosterone and a substance called epitestosterone, typically at a ratio of 1-to-1. In Major League Baseball, if the ratio comes in at 4-to-1 or higher during testing, a player is deemed to have tested positive. The sources did not indicate how high above the threshold Braun's sample tested.

To affirm the results and strengthen its case, MLB asked the World Anti-Doping Agency lab in Montreal, which conducts its testing, to perform a secondary test to determine whether the testosterone spike resulted from natural variations within Braun's body or from an artificial source. The test indicated the testosterone was exogenous, meaning it came from outside his body.
Huge bombshell. Not looking good for Braun. Key word being exogenous. Not just high levels of testosterone.

Good god no. NOOO! Braun is one of my favorite players in the league. This better be some sort of error.

I'd say the source ESPN has is pretty darn reliable, given the comments they've gotten from a representative for Braun.

You don't issue a statement like the rep did if there was nothing to it.

Marc the Habs Fan 12-10-2011 07:17 PM

Maybe it's the other Ryan Braun (the pitcher)?

Oilbleeder 12-10-2011 07:23 PM

Wow.

Boris Le Tigre 12-10-2011 07:27 PM

oh no

Blackhawkswincup 12-10-2011 07:28 PM

Sucks to see

Thought he was a real good rising star ,, If true then his accomplishments are tainted

SuperSaiyanBeastmode 12-10-2011 07:39 PM

really shocking, would they take away the mvp from him, or are they not allowed to do that?

PanthersPens62 12-10-2011 07:40 PM

Was absolutely stunned when I heard this. I am also hoping there is more to this. I tend to think it was unintentional......he ate something or took some medication/supplement he thought was ok.

That would be hilarious. He could 'juice' all he wants he'd still be horrible.

As long as they give it to Kemp.
