In December 2011, Ryan Braun tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs (PED’s) but appealed the ruling saying, “It’s BS.”
He had been tested in October 2011 and received the title of MVP in November 2011.
They need to take that title away from him because he was guilty, took drugs when he received the award, and lied about it.
Braun admitted his guilt and apologized Tuesday. He is suspended for the rest of the season – 65 games – and it will cost him $3 million dollars.
If he were really sincere, he’d voluntarily give up his MVP award.
He issued the following statement:
“As I have acknowledged in the past, I am not perfect. I realize now that I have made some mistakes. I am willing to accept the consequences of those actions. This situation has taken a toll on me and my entire family, and it has been a distraction to my teammates and the Brewers organization. I am very grateful for the support I have received from players, ownership and the fans in Milwaukee and around the country. Finally, I wish to apologize to anyone I may have disappointed – all of the baseball fans especially those in Milwaukee, the great Brewers organization, and my teammates. I am glad to have this matter behind me once and for all, and I cannot wait to get back to the game I love.”
Insofar as his statement is concerned, “It’s BS.”
