azwethnkweiz: this happened a long time ago, during his appeal over a year ago.
Orgasmatron138: One of the arguments I heard during that appeals process in defense of Braun was that he never had that period of time where he was noticeably bigger, like Sosa, McGuire, and Bonds.I'd like to think this means that he's never played a clean game of professional baseball in his life, and when he comes back he's going to suck, but that's just me.
Dinobot: the only thing missing was Ryan Braun saying that he found out Laurenzi donates money to palestine.
Ponzholio: Dinobot: the only thing missing was Ryan Braun saying that he found out Laurenzi donates money to palestine.Or he kicked a puppy at the FedEx facility...
HotWingConspiracy: Is he going to jam a needle in to his ass and pull the PEDs out while simultaneously getting Laurenzi his job back or something?
Pontious Pilates: So does this mean he's out of the Pamphlet?
JtMD: Pontious Pilates: So does this mean he's out of the Pamphlet?Actually it was a leaflet.
Iowan73: That is a pretty low blow to try to discredit someone by accusing them of being a Cubs fan.
Dr Dreidel: JtMD: Pontious Pilates: So does this mean he's out of the Pamphlet?Actually it was a leaflet.And wasn't it only "Famous Jewish BOXING Legends"?// Braun also didn't say he'd take Yom Kippur off - he's out of my Lox Social Sundays group// and that makes Khalil Greene MVP-for-life
Killer Cars: It's not that he deserved to in anyway, but there's no good reason for a billion dollar enterprise to enforce any drug policy with such lax collection policies
The Gentleman Caller: Braun needs to get beaned once a game. Nothing at the head or anything, but bounce one off his elbow or ass until he gets the message that he's hated, even by his fellow players.
The Gordie Howe Hat Trick: Well, Laurenzi probably hates Jews now.
JohnBigBootay: I don't even know why we are discussing this since clearly Braun was dirty and the test was obviously valid and not tampered with.
jayhawk88: What a complete and total weasel. Really hope he's remembered for this nonsense as much as ARod ~10 years down the road.
Killer Cars: Braun is clearly an asshole and a user, I'm not disputing that. I just think the whole "Braun got the collector fired" argument is pretty weak.
Iowan73: The tester deserved to get fired because he didn't follow the proper protocol. When you don't follow protocol, you allow cheaters to get away with cheating because you handed them a gift-wrapped defense for the positive test. Braun obviously knew that he would still lool guilty if his only defense was that the test protocol was not followed, so he went all out to discredit the sample collector and proclaim his innocence, even though he knew he was guilty. In short, he is a douche and I hope the next Cub picher he faces puts a fastball in his ear hole.
JohnBigBootay: Killer Cars: It's not that he deserved to in anyway, but there's no good reason for a billion dollar enterprise to enforce any drug policy with such lax collection policiesI think that's kind of horseshiat. Pretty sure I've read that under WADA protocols - which works just fine for the Olympics - that test would have counted just fine. It's MLB that has the extra language regarding handling of samples that Braun was able to exploit. I don't even know why we are discussing this since clearly Braun was dirty and the test was obviously valid and not tampered with.
LarryDan43: FedEx regular offices were closed, but a FedEx/Kinkos was open. That was the technicality.
