Alex Rodriguez. Ryan Braun. Jhonny Peralta. The list goes on and on, and it’s a tune everyone would like to get out of their heads but can’t, like an annoying ad jingle stuck on an endless loop in your head. Yes, sports fans, Major League Baseball is once again up to its neck in juice.
Ryan Braun has had accolade after accolade piled on him, starting with Rookie of the year in his major league debut season (2007) though his selection as NL MVP in 2011 and the home run champion last year. He was also called on the carpet to answer to a urinalysis test that showed elevated levels of testosterone. His (somehow) successful defense? The sample collector didn’t get to the FedEx office quick enough to suit the arbitrator.
