An arbitration hearing will take place this month to give Braun an opportunity to overturn a reported positive drug test in October for a banned substance that could result in a 50-game suspension. Delaying the verdict beyond a reasonable period would not be fair to either Braun or the Brewers, under the circumstances.
Because the drug testing program is confidential and news of Braun's positive test never should have leaked out, MLB will not announce when the arbitration hearing will be held. But, in past hearings, the player has been notified of the panel's decision within a week.
My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!
MILWAUKEE -- Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun will break his uncharacteristically long silence in a short speech after accepting his National League MVP Award at a banquet in New York on Saturday, the New York Times reported Wednesday.
“Ryan Braun may be exonerated here,” Patrick said on his radio show, as transcribed by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “He may be found innocent. And judging from all of the information I was told, there’s a good chance that he should be.”
This decision on Braun's suspension is sure dragging on. It leads me to believe that it will be reduced, if not eliminated. Otherwise, why the delay in announcing the suspension stands?
For the Reds, I hope he sits 50 games. For my fantasy team, I hope he plays.
2013 Record at games attended: 0-1
Wow........if they do reduce, or eliminate his suspension, that opens a huge can of worms.
I think they're just taking their own sweet time as they often do especially under Selig. I doubt Braun gets his suspension reduced
I don't know. From the sound of things, he's not fessing up to anything but rather stating quite emphatically that there's been an error. I think the delay is trying to sort that out. With it taking this long, I think there might be some truth to the assertion of an error.
94 and winning the division and the NLCS but falling in the WS to Toronto in 6
94 Reds / 86 Cards / 85 Pirates / 76 Cubs / 72 Brewers
Is he allowed to participate in Spring Training?
...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.
Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.
