What a complete and total weasel. Really hope he's remembered for this nonsense as much as ARod ~10 years down the road.

Baseball Selig'ed this up from the get-go. All so a sleazy used-car salesman could have a "legacy". Braun owes the guy he defamed and Baseball an abject apology. Dropped chain-of-custody dude owes Baseball an apology. And Baseball owes Bud Selig a kick in the ass and a shove out the door.

In fairness, f*cking up the chain of custody thing and letting an opponent get off the hook DOES make it seem like the guy is a Cub fan.

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.

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

I 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.

That is a pretty low blow to try to discredit someone by accusing them of being a Cubs fan.

azwethnkweiz: this happened a long time ago, during his appeal over a year ago.

Yeah I wonder if the reporter who said Braun didn't owe the collector an apology will change his mind now.

What's a scumbag, Braun should be suspended for next season too.

Braun, who is Jewish, also told the players that he had been told the collector was an anti-Semite.

You know you've got a religious person cornered when they bust this shiat out.

A source with knowledge of his thinking says Braun wants to make things right again.

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?
