I don't want to be right...and I hope I'm not.
When Arod was linked to the PED clinic in Miami last week, Chuck & I had a huge debate on whether or not Ryan Braun's name should even be brought up in the discussion. I was told i was nuts linking the University of Miami to Braun, just because he went there and worked with the strength & conditioning coach who was mentioned in the initial article. I was told "wait til he's on a list"...well...now he's on a list. What do you want next?
In one of the documents sited in Jeff Passan's article, Braun's name IS LISTED NEXT TO "RB 20-30K". I'm no codebreaker, but RB? Ryan Braun. 20-30K? $20-$30,00. And don't forget Tony Boshch listed the amount of money owed by other players in SIMILAR notation.
Now, according to his statement, Braun & his attorny used Tony Bosch's services to help sort out the T/E ratio and possibilities of tampering with samples. Does that cost $20K- $30K??? Right now, I have no idea...but it may.
also...There was a note FROM BOSCH congratulating a runner named Juan Nunez that represents melky cabrera, that mentioned the "braun advantage" after Cabrera won the All Star Game MVP...later in the season, you may remember Melky came clean about using PED's.
As i scramble to write down all of my thoughts, NOTHING is concrete...and i hope the truth comes out and that Braun is found innocent. I WANT Ryan Braun to be clean but I think i speak for many when i say this is getting tough.
cheers to finding the truth...
