Holy shi…

ESPN is reporting that reigning NL MVP Ryan Braun tested positive for PEDs and will serve a 50 game suspension. He is appealing.
This is huge.

Before Braun PED stuff seemed to center on guys that used them well before they were banned by MLB or guys towards the end of their careers. Braun is in his prime. I wonder what this will do to his card values. I also wonder if any sports writers will call for his MVP award to be retroactively yanked since the test took place right after the season ended.

Braun’s people deny he used PEDs and are stating there are “unusual circumstances” surrounding the case that will show his innocence. In the curent climate where anything related to PEDs in baseball is akin to a cardinal sin this will have to hurt him, even if found innocent.

We will have to wait and see. Personally I am a fan of the guy and hope it turns out to be un-true.
