    There's been no spike in his production. He's not gotten any bigger, or faster, since becoming a pro. He doesn't hit the ball any further.

    I know there are different kinds of performance enhancers, but remember, the test that flagged Braun wasn't for a PED. It was a "banned substance". Hell, it could have been pot, and that would have been sufficient for a ban.

    It seems people have some ax to grind with Ryan Braun. The guy is the only Major Leaguer ever to have a ban overturned (that we know of). Is it not possible that he didn't do anything?
    It's my understanding they don't test for weed. That's why Jeremy Jeffress had to be put on the 40 man when he was busted twice. They test in minors, but not MLB go figure. But I get your point, it could have been cold medicine. But still, it seems suspect.

Melky Cabrera was rewarded with a 2 yr/$16mil deal the year after getting caught. He would not have sniffed that kind of a contract had he not juiced and he still got paid, albeit far less than if he had not tested dirty, BUT still way more than anything his body of work has earned. And this is straight from someone who would cheer Barry Bonds from the bleachers in San Francisco; you have to admit it to yourself.

    Thank you. I know everybody always wants to paint a rosey picture, but life is not like that. Some people will do just about anything to put themselves ahead of the rest. These guys want to be the best, they want the fame and acclaim, and most of all, the pay. They will break the rules and put their morals aside just to do so. Defending them is worthless, because once again, they can care less about you. To them, you are just one of the people going to the games and making them rich.

    Ya, they definitely don't test for weed, nor do they put much emphasis on it. Lincecum was in the spotlight for weed and MLB completely ignored it.

    I hope he gets suspended for a whole season since he weaseled his way out of the 50 game one.

    Look at the list of guys he's with. A-Rod and Melky, I'm sure both were just asking for his advice as well or something?

    It's solid evidence that he cheated right in that document. His name is along side of the likes of Alex Rrodriguez and Melky Cabrera, both who have openly admitted to PED use.
