Ryan Braun Wins Appeal Delivers Blow To MLB Drug Testing

Ryan Braun said he was innocence and the panel by a score of 2-1 agree with him and now he will not need to serve a 50 game suspension. This is great news to Milwaukee Brewers baseball fans and Braun supporters. How Braun beat the test maybe a little shady in people's eyes, but they followed the rules and beat the system plain and simple. Yes, it may not look right but let us take a closer look at something that many people are overlooking about Ryan Braun.

Braun has passed over 25 drug tests in my career, including at least three in the past year. A person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press that, after being informed of the positive result, Braun asked to have another urine test taken, and that the second test was within normal range. The key is the second test at the same time that was taken was normal. This goes to show you something was flawed in the testing. Braun has passed 28 tests and deserved to win his appeal. Even if he did not win his appeal I am sure he would have brought evidence to prove what he was taking and why. We will never know that evidence because he did not need it. MLB drug testing failed this time around and Braun was the lucky winner.
