The sad thing is, that he will forever have steroids mentioned with his MVP season from some stupid fans.

So was he proven he wasn't on the PEDS?

Not at all.

His specimen was not sent in soon enough (according to policy)

He got off on a technicality.

Is it fair that one player gets to cheat because of a technicality? either make him serve the due suspension, or just make PED's legal.

There were some interesting things said when he made his statement about being clear, he was honest about everything including his personal life, that pretty much sums that up, there were rumors that his STD medication was the reason he T-level were so high, was a very interesting story from start to finish

Another black eye to Baseball.

He admitted guilt and this is a bad precedent to go forward with.

He should be serving the 50 days.

IMO

He admitted guilt? I haven't seen or heard him do anything but profess his complete innocence.

When I read the articles about him being cleared it said the panel that ruled on the issue specifically didn't give a reason for their decision. It didn't say whether there was an issue in how the samples were handled or tested or in the time frame in which they were tested and it didn't say anything about any possible STD medication.

This has absolutely nothing to do with Braun being cleared.

I'm pretty sure he has claimed innocence this whole time. I believe what is going to come out is that the STD medication rumor is true. If that's the case, we need to move on, and drop this Braun steroid talk. It's MLB's fault this was overturned in the first place. If they want the players to follow the rules, they should to.

I may have misquoted that, for that I apolagize.

I just heard he offered to take a DNA test to prove his innocence that the sample wasn't his, then when MLB was contemplating that his lawyer and Ryan did a very quick reversal.

Who knows, but apparently he is having a news conference here shortly.

I will say MLB did drop the ball(no pun intended) on the process of the test and retention/transfer of the sample.

I just read the article on ESPN about Braun. Sounds like during the arbitration hearing he didn't dispute the science of the test but instead the chain of custody/timeframe for delivering the sample.

Also from how he was talking about being honest about his personal life throughout the investigation it really sounds like he had to tell them about some sort of embarassing situation that would have caused a false positive (STD medication for example). I'm sure he doesn't want those details to get to the media.

I heard the whole thing took so long because a law suit was filed by Braun's folks for breach of medical confidentiality rights by the testing facility blatantly outing a test that is suppose to be confidential.

Medical records are a big deal these days.

I see Braun getting some serious CASH from the testing agency.

As is in most decisions based on legality there is a difference between innocent and not guilty. If indeed Braun had to be administered a medication for an STD there is a provision in baseball testing regs that he notify and have a medical form filled out to reflect possible problems resulting from taking this medication. he did not fill out and receive medical clearance to take that medication. I do agree that baseball is responsible for this testing screw upand this problem needs to be addressed by baseball and not Braun.

Key word, used to own. Do you really think Bud wants this type of negative media on the MLB testing process. Come on.

Again there is no conflict of interest here, no story.

like when he used to own the brewers while the twins were gonna be contracted. the biggest beneficiary out of that whole deal would've been the brewers expanding their market 10 fold.

baseball is no stranger to bad press during bud's tenure.

Because it was concluded that he bet on MLB baseball games which is forbidden and carries a lifetime ban. And to make matters worse and the reason he is not in the hall today is he repeatably lied time and time again when all he had to do was admit he bet on baseball.

In a nutshell his stubborn EGO was just to big to say I did it and I'm sorry. In which in todays world means you get a 2nd chance. smirk

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.

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.

      With that detail Borch I could spend all summer trying the different suggestions and combos! Very well done sir!    I might have to venture away from Pool 4 to try out some clearer water for night time eyes!

      Just meaning trout  waters that have natural population of trout that are born and grow in the water their entire life.  Green pumpkin, browns, watermelons, black, silver/ blue, some orange. Colors those fish are used too. Insects, Minnows, crawdads etc.

      I was up last weekend(Memorial Day weekend) at the cabin on Birch Point. Where my electronics reading right that water was 64-66 degrees? Also tried up in the shallows in the pencil reads and sandy rocky bottoms of big bay, the side of the point our cabin is on, hoping to find crappies on beds, but nothing. Seems like the perfect area and water temp for all other lakes I’ve fished and there was nothin. Not a sight of beds or fish. Maybe there just isn’t good crappie numbers there? Anyone will to share some shallows for sight fishing on beds? And info on that water temp or what it currently is. and if that was right, is that still not warm enough for vermillion? Gonna be up the weekend of 6/5 to try again, and hoping to not miss it this week. Thank you

      Thanks for the input, Patches and good to hear you did well in the area.   Johnson lake is a memorable one for me. I fished there for the first time about two years ago around the last week of June and as soon as we drove past Frontier my pin clip for the boat trailer fell off. Never found out why and never happened again, but I noticed it gone at the launch. I was with a buddy of mine and my father, and I told them to just troll near the launch while I went back to look for the clip. After about 15 more minutes I found it in the middle of road, right outside Pine Cone Cafe.   By the way, it was overcast with the occasional sprinkle, but the sun would spill out as well. When i got back to the launch I noticed my two fisherman pals where not eager to come pick me up. In about 20 minutes they caught 3 walleye trolling spinners in about the 10-12 foot weed line outside of the launch.  We kept one feeling we were deserving giving the circumstance, but as soon as I got in the boat luck failed us again. We trolled the whole lake and only caught one more on the east side. The weather kept getting better which was probably the reason, but it seems like Johnson is like most likes in the area... where if there is a hot walleye bite its not going to last too long.    My Dad went out on Burrows the other day and got nothing too exciting besides northern while fishing the same tactic.  Thats one of our "go tos," but Im currenty not in the area, but getting there soon. Hopefully i bring better reports come as well.   Good Luck

      There's one on Craigslist in the free section. It's in rough shape, but the floats look good. Brooklyn Park.

      Smallmouth should be on beds spawning. Good time to fish smallmouth. Fishing off shallow water off rocky islands on East side of Vermilion should be in play. Troll and throw spinners to shore.  Look for line where big rocks end and small rocks/gravel starts.
