I just heard the best news of all time. Ryan Braun has been exonerated, by Shyam Das from his 50 game suspension. The panel posted a 2-1 vote which overturned Braun’s suspension. Ryan just made history. No one has ever in the MLB have had charges be exonerated before. I’ve been praying that this would happen all winter. I always had a hunch that he was innocent. He seemed too much of a great guy to test positive. I don’t get why in a statement, the MLB said it “vehemently disagrees” with the ruling. The three man panel is supposed to find justice and that’s just what it did. Nothing has been released on why he was overturned though.
“I am very pleased and relieved by today’s decision,” Braun said in a statement. “It is the first step in restoring my good name and reputation. We were able to get through this because I am innocent and the truth is on our side.We provided complete cooperation throughout, despite the highly unusual circumstances. I have been an open book, willing to share details from every aspect of my life as part of this investigation, because I have nothing to hide. I have passed over 25 drug tests in my career, including at least three in the past year.”
This will really help the Brew Crew this season. It’s finally nice to have justice and now people can see that Braun truly does deserve the NL MVP award.

Let me start by saying I like Braun, But…
He got off on a technicality. He was “innocent”, the panel didn’t say the result wasn’t “twice the levels we have ever seen before”. It said “they held the sample for a few hours too long, so we have to toss the result out.”
The exact details of it are said to be a courier screwed up and thought a building was closed so he held the sample too, long. A feakin’ courier.
So dude can try and act like a martyr, and say how it’s about “every major league player” all day long and it won’t change the fact that he got off on a paperwork snafu and nothing less.
OJ got a clean walk on a technicality too (far more severe crime of course.)
yea buddy Says Brian (if you couldnt tell)

Regarding Braun, I agree with Djpostl. He got off on a technicality. -Emma
