Re: The Unintended Byproduct of Ryan Braun's Biogenesis Defense
Interesting. Braun's statement's made in asserting his defense do tend to corroborrate the authenticity of the records, so it's not good news at all for the other players involved.
As for hearsay objections, I don't think MLB's investigations are limited by the Federal Rules of Evidence so not too big a deal there. In the case of civil or criminal prosecution I don't think that Braun's statements will affect admissability much at all, but they may impact the weight of the evidence by corroborrating the accurracy of the information the document's contain.
