Ryan Braun Drug Test Scam
Saying "my name has been dragged through the mud," National League most valuable player Ryan Braun reported to spring training with the Milwaukee Brewers in Phoenix on Friday and declared he had been vindicated, a day after his 50-game suspension for a positive drug test was overturned by an arbitrator.
Braun expalined how the urine sample he provided on Oct. 1, the day the Brewers opened the playoffs, was not delivered to FedEx store until Oct. 3. Baseball's drug agreement calls for samples to be delivered to FedEx on the day they are collected. So the samples were tainted.
"At the end of the day the truth prevailed," he said. "I'm a victim of a process that completely broke down and failed in the way that it was applied to me in the case. As players, we're held to a standard of 100% perfection regarding the program, and everybody else associated with that program should be held to the same standard. We're a part of a process where you're 100% guilty until proven innocent. It's the opposite of the American judicial system."
