    Re: The Hot Stove thread (MLB off season)

    National League MVP Ryan Braun, who last season led the Milwaukee Brewers to their first division title in nearly three decades, has tested positive for a performance-enhancing drug and faces a 50-game suspension if the initial finding is upheld, two sources familiar with the case told "Outside the Lines."

    Re: MVP Braun reportedly tests positive for drugs

    Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun, the National League’s MVP in 2011, faces a 50-game suspension after reportedly testing positive for elevated levels of testosterone during the playoffs, according to a report Saturday.

    ESPN reported that further tests showed the testosterone was synthetic. Braun is disputing the positive result.

    A spokesperson for Braun on Saturday issued the following statement: “There are highly unusual circumstances surrounding this case which will support Ryan’s complete innocence and demonstrate that there was absolutely no intentional violation of the program. While Ryan has impeccable character and no previous history, unfortunately, because of the process we have to maintain confidentiality and are not able to discuss it any further, but we are confident that he will ultimately be exonerated.”

    According to ESPN, Braun provided a urine sample in October and was notified of the positive result later in October.

    A violation of MLB’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Policy has never been successfully appealed.

    Braun, 28, batted a career-high .332, hit 33 home runs and had 111 RBIs for the Brewers in 2011. He then batted .500 in the NL Division Series and .333 in the NLCS, where the Brewers were eliminated by the St. Louis Cardinals, at around the time he tested positive.

    In MVP balloting, Braun received 20 first-place votes and therefore outpointed second-place finisher Matt Kemp, who received 10.

    A player has never been stripped of a Baseball Writers Association of America award.
    Yikes another black eye to baseball. This is getting just terrible.

    Of all the people who could have tested positive; this makes me the saddest. I hope it isn't true and they find a way to say that the test was wrong or something along those lines. I'm not a Brewer fan in the slightest, but he seems like a genuinely nice guy and I would hate to see this happen to him.

    I have said it and I'll say it again, I wouldn't be surprised if anyone has taken steroids at one point. Name any player and I wouldn't be surprised at all to be honest.

    Pretty awful news, it seemed as though baseball was finally getting out from underneath the black cloud of steroids that's been lingering, and then the NL MVP gets a positive test for a banned substance. I don't think he will get stripped of the award if the positive test holds up though.

As you know I'm apart of a shit load of forums and one of them seems to be in chaos. You have a Owner who barely is on the site these days, and only made one Global Moderator for the forum. It seems the chaos has gotten so bad members mostly younger members are using racist and gay slurs to their answers in debate. Legit I saw three threads where members put f***** and that's it. Yesterday I rage over these members I basically told them to stop that, it gives no value to what you're saying in a post. No one will take you seriously if you using such words just to say it. Shoot even the sb is a jungle full of chaos with the same situation. I came to the G-Mod and said hey you're in charge of this forum, you let shit go under the rug why did I say that? Well last week a member came into my LD for Impact and spoiled the whole show for most people. I went in the sb for the forum and said hey man this guy is fucking up the experience for people in the sb can you do something. He pretty much knew this member and told me he's done this before so I'm thinking it took me to say something for you to act? Also a month ago I had a problem with a member named Nero where randomly out of no where he puts racist pics of Hispanic doing crimes, eating Tacos etc! I was like one I never talked about this guy the purpose of this. Again this G-Mod knew about his antics as well as Puls3 the Admin. A month before this I told the Admin he was a problem putting down new members left and right. Thank God I screencaped his actions and he hasn't been there since. Okay now back to the Global Mod I took it twitter and told the guy straight up you don't act because you love the slurping of your dick from members. He's doesn't want to mend fences pretty much and besides setting up a league for the forum for WWE 2k14 he does nothing for the forum. Now I want to talk to Puls3 personally because his rules are being broken left and right and his staff in charge is doing nothing by joining in the fun. I have a plan to get two or three other staff members who I think will be fair and firm when needed should I talk to him. I know I'm taking it seriously but I love this forum like I love this forum and I don't want it to be spoiled like Milk you feel me? Also on twitter and on the forum a bunch of little kids came to box with me when I was speaking my mind and I told them grow some hair on your chest before talking to me lol

    Re: MVP Braun reportedly tests positive for drugs

    Performance enhancing drugs aren't necessarily steroids, though, and I think people don't see that. There are various stimulants and supplements banned by MLB through the CBA. His testosterone levels were extremely high, but a subsequent test showed he was clean. This was a mix up, he's innocent and the appeal will go through.

    Pretty sure the subsequent test showed that the testosterone was synthetic. I don't really see this getting over turned. I don't feel sorry from Braun at all. Like he said about A-Rod, he should just come out and said he took it and apologize for it. That's the best thing he can do.
