Because it was concluded that he bet on MLB baseball games which is forbidden and carries a lifetime ban.

I wonder how many people in baseball bet on baseball now, knowing the consequences.

50 day suspension? Please. There is a easy way to curb the roid use --- raise the stakes. Of course, that would require MLB to actually want to stop it... Which they obviously don't.

Remind me again why Pete Rose was banned FOR LIFE?

What does this have to do with Ryan Braun?

I agree, a one year ban up to a lifetime ban if caught with PEDs. But that would still not stop the use of PEDs. I am guessing the players union won't allow this.

A no whining, no excuse lifetime ban would stop it.

and might make players think twice about the flaxseed oil their trainers hand them.

thats the funny thing everyone is going to base him being on the juice judging by his numbers this year but they will go down for the fact there is no Prince Fielder batting behind him.

So where in the order will Aramis Ramirez bat? He did have great numbers last year and better BA than fielder

Just caught the tester's side of the story. He followed protocol and the test was tripled sealed against tampering. He didn't get off on a technicality; his challenge (based on timing, who knows what was heard about the actual elevated testosterone levels) was heard by 3 arbitrators and they ruled 2-1. Braun claimed he was looking forward to the day he could tell his side of the story and he hasn't done that in full yet.

Wisconson is on an incredible run with their sports teams right now and this is just another sign of that... Unbelievable Braun was able to weasle his way out of this one. I heard on the radio it was the highest level of testosterone ever recorded in an MLB test on a player.... the things that make you go hmmmmmmmmmmm

What would you call it then?... Justice? whistle

And he did tell his story.... Paraphrase: "I guarantee you there were no drugs in my system" even though both the A and B samples show record amounts of said drugs.... grin

His big defense was "we don't know where my urine was for 48 hours" ..

I wouldn't call it justice either, I'm just saying he didn't get off on a technicality...if there was one, what was it? The tester followed protocol so you can't say it was a technicality...he got off because 2 out of 3 thought it was a loophole...the science surely doesn't. I'm not a medical doctor, tester, or materials chemist, but wouldn't a measurement of testosterone stay the same or diminish with time in a sealed sample rather than increase? It's a pretty complex compound, I don't think it would just naturally synthesize.

He hasn't specifically addressed the elevated testosterone levels, his big story to clear his name is he doesn't know where the test was for 48 hours? He knows any sort of immediate addressing of the issue would be an admission of guilt if he says he used product a or product b.

MLB leadership is such a joke...they stick their head in the sands about steroids for years and years and when they finally start testing, they can't stand up to a test completed according to protocol? Why did it go to arbitration? Was there something about testing protocol in the labor contract that they should have a say about? Seems like they were arguing about a process that neither the arbitrators or defendant have any understanding of. Sounds too like the testing companies didn't have a say in it.

He played the OJ card and won. He was/is saying his sample was tampered with or could have been tampered with based on the Sample being SEALED in the fridge of the tester over the weekend versus being immediately delivered to Fed EX.

It is confirmed he broke Manny Ramirez's record of elevated testosterone levels...

Anyway time to go fish some Tullies before they are all gone... grin

Hopefully they can figure out who peed in Braun's cup during those 48 hours, maybe it will lead authorities to Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman's murderers.

I'd say if you got off through any method other than actually proving your innocence, you got off on a technicality. His whole defense is based on pee sitting in a fridge without armed guards protecting it from tampering. He could use the same defense if it went straight to the lab. Who knows what could have happened to it during that 10 minute car ride?

wouldn't a measurement of testosterone stay the same or diminish with time in a sealed sample rather than increase? It's a pretty complex compound, I don't think it would just naturally synthesize.

I used to work in a hospital lab. We didn't have the capabilities to run testosterone tests there so they got sent out. The time from pee hitting the cup to it going on an analyzer often exceeded 48 hours, yet these results were perfectly acceptable for medical diagnosis of hormone imbalances.

The fact that it went to arbitration has to say that there was inconsistencies in the testing or handling of the sample. There is going to be much more info about this coming out but to have a test ratio 3 times higher, as reported earlier today, than Manny has to be telling us something is wrong somewhere.

it went to arbitration because braun appealed the original decision of a positive test.

the three person panel is made of one person from player's association, one from mlb, and one independent. the mlb and player's association votes were split (as expected) and the decision was left with the independent person.

i believe others have appealed but no one else has been successful.

I was just thinking about bumping this thread. Braun is having another great year. Should be interesting to see if he doubles up on MVP trophies.

Will be tough not to vote for him as MVP. Making a good push at the end of the season when it counts for to try to make the playoffs.

      Fact checker says OK. 😋  You may or may not believe this but I was partially poking the bear too. 😉   Cheaper per pound than going up to fish and limits every time.

      I love the FL -18 because you can zoom to the bottom 6' or 12' range (my cousin has one). And I do not remember which model you have multiple Mhz zones to choose from to get rid of interference. Meaning if another guy in the fish house has a FL-8 and the same transducer, you'll get interference. This is especially important when deep water fishing as the signal goes out in all directions, it the receiver (cone) the limits the reception to the cone angle of say 9, 12 or 15 degrees. Another thing some of the models have it so you have 2 (9 & 15 degrees) transducer degree to choose from. And do you want it to do double duty and be able to use it in the summer time too? That should weigh in also then. The FL22 has bottom lock and reportedly by others it is better to get through algae and air bubbles that you may encounter in the summer months. I'd suggest going to a good fishing shop and pick their brains on the differences, and of the brands before you choose a brand and model. Here is what I would do as I sense you are on a budget ($300). Buy a newer USED model of say the FL18 or the FL20. Check Graig's List near where you live. INSIST that you go out on a lake and test it before you buy a used one and that all the features work. Ask for the manual too. BTW, the FL20 has the flat screen, and some say it has more definition. (I have not used one though). Good luck.

      Son has an FL28, buddy the FL18 both thought thier flashers were drawing too much current as there newer batteries died in a few hours. (Had bad batteries) Fl28 spec states 275 ma, I measured 287ma all options on. Fl18 spec at 200ma actual measured 208ma. I ran both units on new full charged 9ah batteries for 8 hrs. Fl28 batt was at 11.72 Fl18 11.97 at end of 8 he's. Calculated run time for a Fl18 on a 15AH battery is about 58 hours and Fl28 at 41 hours. (15 ah  = 15,000 ma - 15,000ma ÷ 208ma x.8 = 57.69. The x.8 represents 80% due to cold temp, repeted power on/off etc.).

      SUBOOS Gen 2 Ultimate Rechargeable Camping Light and 5200mAh USB Powerbank - (Black) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00Z5WYESW/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_taa_D-Y6DbH7PDMX9   I bought this light late last winter to use in my eskimo popup, hangs from hub with big caribiner, puts off good light. It's rated at 280 lumens for 6 hours,  longer than I'll spend on the ice at night.  Best part though is the lithium batteries are CONSUMER REPLACEABLE!  You can even charge your phone with it in a pinch.  A few weeks ago I put a little led fog light strip on my helix,  spliced alligator clips and will run it off locator battery.  Should really light up the area near the hole.  Cost less than $3

      Didn't get out fishing until 11 today due to getting my permanent house out. When I got to the spot that I had cleared the previous day for my permanent I found somebody fishing in the center of my clearing. They must have liked the nice clear spot (slush/water froze overnight).  Not another fisherman within half a mile. I moved 100 feet from my clearing and set it up on a clear area if ice. I found 11" OF ice in this spot, 2" more than I found in my clearing 100 feet away. Maybe this spot never had snow cover so the ice got thicker. Be careful when traveling on the ice especially this year because of the heavy snow early. Many 4 wheelers were running around the lake but where having slow travel due the heavy snow. Somebody attempted to pull out a medium permanent on wheels and got stuck a couple hundred yards out from the landing. Fishing was steady from 11 to 130 when I caught 6 eyes then I caught only 1 more over the next 4 hours. Rainbows outcatching pike suckers by 6 to 1 margin. I fished with a plain red 4 hook. Cajun red line with no swivel seemed to be the best.  The attached pic is Birch Island where most people seem to be going.

      The ones netting guessed that the bootlegged pounds were more then what was going through the fisheries.  There were some very big customers for the bootlegged walleyes they were not just sold in bars and parking lots but entire truck loads to one destination.  Many of them then resold the fish again. White people were also bootlegging out of the State waters some of them were even putting gill nets in the rivers during the spawning run. There was plenty of blame to go around.
