Ryan Braun among players listed in Miami PED records

  • David Whitlock

Yahoo! Sports is reporting that Ryan Braun’s name is listed in Biogenesis records obtained by Yahoo!.  The case continues to be investigated as Alex Rodriguez and Melky Cabrera have been tied to the South Florida outfit.  The implication of Braun is of particular interest, given a positive test just after the 2011 season that was later overturned on appeal.  2011 being the season in which he won the National League MVP Award, questions swirled on how Major League Baseball would react in terms of revoking the award or otherwise noting the circumstances.  Similarly, Melky Cabrera was on pace to win the National League batting crown when he abandoned his claim to the title, stating “I don’t want to win it this way.”

Major League Baseball is eventually going to have to deal with how to handle positive tests, from Hall of Fame questions, to Cy Youngs (Roger Clemens has 7 of them), to career records (I’m talking about you, Bonds).  Taking no stand is not the same as standing up.

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
