Looks like the Brew Crew won't be missing him for the first 50 games of the season.

Herpes medication does not equal PED!

I guess it really depends on what sort of contest we're referring to.

Good point. I love that Braunie having the herp is going to get out there now though. It makes for some funny quips whether it's true or not.

what's more embarassing?

winning MVP then failing a drug test for PEDs & getting a 50-game suspension?
OR
having 50 game suspension taken away bc they found out it was his herpes meds that caused the spike in his test?

also, if the herp meds rumor is true, can he sue MLB or the testers for negligence & embarrassment for having this info leaked?

There has to be some kind of Hippa violation somewhere. He probably doesnt mind letting people know as long as he gets to clear his name.

All prisoners say they "didn't do it" too.

lol im not saying i believe him, just figured since i'd made a post assuming he had the herp, the least i could do was show his side of it.

im sure when Ryan logs on & reads the thread, he'll appreciate it

Then let me use this forum to publicly apologize to Ryan.

Sorry dude, I thought the lesions I had were just signalling a penile growth spurt. My bad.

I don't know what to think on this one. Braun got off on a technicality when the "chain of custody" came in to question. From my understanding, in theory, if the testing lab had received that sample in 24 hours or less, Braun would have had no recourse.

If he didn't have the herp meds in him, what caused the levels? Maybe the handler doesn't like the Brewers? Jews? What's Braun going with, the conspiracy?

I believe Occam's Razor would suggest Braun was juiced out of his mind for game one of the playoffs, rather than any frame job. Braun was a squeaky clean, well spoken poster boy. Who benefits from harming his career?

I believe he could be innocent, sure. Only Braun and the handler know the real truth.... ::: X-Files theme :::
