We have plenty of hearsay and conjecture. Those are kinds of evidence.

The guy wouldn't be on three separate lists if he wasn't cheating and the mailman fooling with his urine sample is ridiculous.

so...suspend him for what now?

he fought and rightly won his appeal last year and all he's done is appear on two lists since. you think he wasn't tested this season? you think he's not tested now?

i get it. you don't like ryan braun. that doesn't mean you get to suspend him for that. derek jeter wouldn't have played after 1996 if i had my druthers.

He was listed at 210, but that weight was taken during spring training when he had a terrible flu, so he probably played around 220.

You can't suspend people for simply appearing on a list.

I'm sure Braun was tested more than anybody last year and didn't test positive again, so what's their to suspend him for?


Just because this list just came out recently doesn't mean they were dealing with this guy last month. Almost everyone on that list has tested positive at some point in the past, so they're were probably customers back at the time, not now.

This is the last I will say on the Braun thing and I know a lot of people disagree and that is fine. The chances of him telling the truth and not taking PED's while possible are at least in my opinion extremely slim. If you appear on one list, ok but this is the third time he is appearing on a separate list. I'd like to think everyone knows he got away with murder so to speak the first time. He is running out of excuses and I highly doubt he would have appeared on the Bosch list if it really was just a question of consulting fees.

You can have all the leads and odd circumstances you want, but without proof, you have nothing.

Saw some of the comments regarding WAR in baseball, QBR in football, and PER in basketball.

What is the nerd stat in hockey?
