Braun Fails PED Test

This past season’s NL MVP Ryan Braun failed a performance enhancing drug test that was administered to him in October. The test revealed elevated levels of testosterone in Braun’s system. It was later determined that the testosterone was synthetic and not the same testosterone that is produced by the body.

Braun is contesting the test and took an independent test in late October upon being notified of a failed test. Braun’s people are saying that the Milwaukee Brewers all-star passed the independent test and that it will reveal flaws in the initial test.

Braun is facing a 50-game suspension at the start of the 2012 season.

  1. This is just an amazing story. Manny Ramirez was something but Ryan Braun is right in the prime of his career getting caught. And to come off an MVP season and have this cloud it is unbelievable. It’s going to be interesting to see what happens to Ryan Braun and what kind of precedent the MLB sets in this kind of case. What a blow to a the MLB after so much success with their drug program. Who knows who else is out there on the juice.
