Truth, Justice, and the American Way
Here's to TRUTH-JUSTICE-and the AMERICAN WAY! Ryan Braun did NOT take steroids, and that's that!
The system in which Ryan Braun appealed a potential 50 game suspension WORKED! As I have stated for some weeks, there obviously were some mitigating circumstances in THIS particular case. Some of which we'll probably never know. MLB has to respect their own system, even if they don't agree with the outcome.
After all, THEY are the ones that set the process up in the first place. From the informational leak, to the 3 times higher levels, to the chain of custody of the sample, it's the process or the system MLB put into place. Mistakes are going to be made by every single person, every business, every team, etc.
Owning up to the mistakes are the key. For MLB to choose to get into a war of words with Ryan Braun makes them look rather foolish.
YOU, MLB, submitted your evidence, Ryan Braun submitted his. The 3 party arbitration panel voted, and the outcome was that there simply wasn't enough to suspend him, breech of the rules that you (MLB) set up, or there were those mitigating circumstances that prevented the suspension. To turn your back on one of the leagues premiere players is something MLB should be ashamed of, no matter what OPINION they had of the outcome.
Stand up, own up to your own system, and back players like Braun who played within the rules set forth by YOU!
