Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun has been suspended for the remainder of the 2013 season after being presented with evidence by MLB that he took PEDs.
Shortly after winning the NL MVP in 2011, Braun was suspended for 50 games after a positive test for PEDs. However, Braun successfully appealed the suspension based on flaws in the chain of custody of his sample.
I defended Braun when his suspension was overturned. It might very well be that the chain of custody was indeed compromised where it concerns Braun’s positive sample. But Braun went beyond that and denied any wrongdoing altogether. In light of his acceptance of this suspension, clearly Braun has been less than honest and forthcoming with public, his team and himself.
