Ryan Braun Cleared Of Doping Charges
All over the Interwebz, so I'll use this Craig Calcaterra piece at NBC Sports' Hardball Talk as my jumping off point about Ryan Braun being cleared of doping charges; he will not serve any suspension time. MLB "vehemently disagrees" with the decision made by a three-man panel that chain of custody issues (which MLB itself set up!) tainted the test outcome. More from Calcaterra:
Ryan Braun got off on a technicality? Bull. Major League Baseball half-assed it and failed to adhere to the standards it set up for itself. In that case I have no problem considering Braun to be the less culpable party. Anyone who says otherwise is more interested in assumptions and the casting of aspersions than they are in a rigorous and legitimate drug testing regime.Agreed 100%.
