    WOW. I would not have seen this coming, but I guess I'm not surprised.

    Will Bud give him a pass since he's a Brewer?

    Can we crown Kemp the MVP now?

    You never hope that someone is cheating but I won't be crying if this is true

    Re: Ryan Braun fails drug test

    According to the article, he is disputing the results due to "highly unusual circumstances surrounding the case." I wonder if he was taking some other sort of supplement for another reason...

    It seems almost everyone that tests positive has some "highly unusual" reason. These guys just don't come out and take accountability for skirting the rules.

    While this may not happen, I think it should strongly be considered that he forfeit his MVP if his case is not overturned.

    True. I guess I'm just inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt until proven otherwise.

    Re: Ryan Braun fails drug test

    Since being informed of the results, Braun has been disputing his case. A source close to Braun said that when he was told about the positive test, he immediately requested to be tested again. That second test, the source said, was not positive. Those close to Braun believe that the difference between the two tests will show that the first test was invalid.

    I'm not going to be the least bit upset if Braun is forced to sit out the first 50 games this coming season.No Braun for 50 games and no Albert Pujols period can't hurt the Reds chances.

    So, he got caught in a cycle, probably knew it, and requested another test? Sorry Ryan, you're busted. No way around it.
