After a long wait, Ryan Braun wins appeal of suspension

February 23, 2012

Via ESPN:

National League MVP Ryan Braun‘s 50-game suspension has been overturned by baseball arbitrator Shyam Das.

The decision was announced Thursday by the Major League Baseball Players Association.

An outfielder for Milwaukee, Braun tested positive in October for elevated testosterone, and ESPN revealed the positive test in December.

No reasoning was given for Thursday’s decision.

“Today the arbitration panel announced its decision, by a 2-1 vote, to sustain Ryan Braun’s grievance challenging his 50-game suspension by the commissioner’s office,” a statement from the players’ association said.

Good news for Ryan and the Brewers. He is one of the faces of the MLB and now is back to being the face of the Milwaukee Brewers. The Brewers are contenders and can win that division again. Let’s have him report to camp tomorrow and then have another awesome MVP season…

“He doesn’t tell me, but he doesn’t have anything to hide,” he said in a telephone interview. “That (16 times) may seem like a higher number than norm, but it is what it is. I don’t think there’s a set number as to how many times you can be tested. Jose has never complained one time about how many times he’s been tested or anyone in our (Performance Agency). Like I said, he’s got nothing to hide.”

This just tells you how much the MLB wants to clamp down on the steroids. Ryan Braun can be innocent and then Braun will make the MLB look very guilty. But Bautista is good because he has perfect timing and can pull the fastball out of the yard. He is a great ahead of the count hitter and he will continue doing that for the rest of his career. He worked with other professionals to get better at hitting. HE HASN’T TAKEN STEROIDS FOLKS. HE CAN HIT A BASEBALL. GET OVER IT…
