Ryan Braun Admits Doping

Ryan Braun has admitted to using banned performance enhancing drugs and apologized for his behavior. According to friends of the Milwaukee Brewers left fielder, Braun was expected to make a public acknowledgment of the fact that he doped during the 2011 season in which the honor of National League MVP came his way.

Braun explained his reasons of using banned drugs and apologized to MLB commissioner Bud Selig, among others, for lying about his doping past. According to sources, the baseball slugger has already had a word with Brewers manager Ron Roenicke and catcher Jonathan Lucroy.

The first Jewish baseball player to win the Most Valuable Player award in decades was ranked number seven by the Sporting News in its 2012 list of the 50 greatest current players in baseball. In 2006, Braun was Milwaukee Brewers’ Minor League Player of the Year and made his major league debut in 2007. He is best described as a 5-tool player for his ability to excel at hitting for average, hitting for power, base running skills and speed, throwing ability, and fielding abilities. Braun was named “National Freshman of the Year” at the University of Miami and a first-team “Freshman All-American”, by Baseball America in 2003. Ryan Braun was also named first-team All-American by Collegiate Baseball. In July 2007, Braun became the fastest in Brewer history to hit 10 major league home runs, doing so in 38th game and hit his 15th home run in the 50th game of his career, and his 20th in his 64th game. Braun won the 2007 NL Rookie of the Year Award beating Troy Tulowitzki by 2 points in the closest NL vote. In 2007, he was voted the NL Sporting News Rookie of the Year by 488 major league players and 30 managers.

The American baseball left fielder and third baseman for the Milwaukee Brewers of Major League Baseball is presently serving a suspension of 65 games from baseball for his role in the Biogenesis scandal. The slugger accepted the ban imposed by MLB after he was shown the evidence gathered by Major League Baseball against him. Braun is also expected to issue an apology to sample collector Dino Laurenzi as Braun “wrongly” appealed a suspension of 50 games after the 2011 season and doubts were created by Braun’s legal team about how his urine sample was collected.

The suggestions of Braun making an apology came after members of New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez’s inner circle gathered and leaked documents that demonstrated that A-Rod implicated Braun and other players in using banned performance enhancing drugs. The report was however denied by Rodriguez and his lawyer.

Braun may have to face many legal issues, including a filed suit by his longtime friend for defamation. Ralph Sasson accused Braun of doping through his years at the University of Miami, committing academic fraud, and accepting money while being a student. Sasson charged that Ryan Braun defamed him after he provided help in his successful appeal of the positive steroid test of Braun in 2011.

  Ryan Braun Suspended Without Pay

Ryan Braun Suspended Without Pay

Milwaukee Brewers Ryan Braun, a former National League MVP, has been suspended without pay for the rest of the season. The player later admitted that he “made mistakes” in violating Major League Baseball’s drug policies.

The 2011 National League MVP was suspended without pay for the rest of the season and the post-season after being tied to a Florida clinic accused of distributing performance enhancing drugs. A 65-game ban, 15 games more than the one he avoided last year was accepted by Braun. Last year, an arbitrator overturned his positive test for elevated testosterone because the urine sample had been improperly handled.

In another development, Matt Kemp who finished second behind Braun in the race for the 2011 National League MVP Award wants Ryan Braun stripped of NL MVP award following drug suspension. The Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder said the suspended Milwaukee Brewers slugger should be stripped of the honor and said people feel “betrayed” by Braun.

After the suspension news broke out, Braun said he is not perfect and realize now he has made some mistakes. He also remarked that he is willing to accept the consequences of those actions. Miami Marlins manager Mike Redmond said for these guys still to be involved with this stuff just baffles him and added that the education is there and everybody knows what you can and can’t take. Redmond said it baffles him that this continues to be a black cloud over the game and said he knows that Major League Baseball has done a great job of cleaning up the game and the testing policy and all that and it’s working. But he added that at the same time, too, it seems like we’ll go through a lull and then, bam, here comes another guy that gets suspended and it’s got to stop.

In January this year, Miami New Times reported that Braun, injured Yankees star Alex Rodriguez, and more than a dozen players were connected with Biogenesis of America, a now-closed anti-aging clinic.

MLB Commissioner Bud Selig announced the penalty for Braun citing the outfielder for unspecified “violations” of both baseball’s drug program and labor contract. The 29-year-old Braun was hitting .298 with nine homers and 38 RBIs this year and will miss the Milwaukee Brewers’ final 65 games without pay, costing him about $3 million of his $8.5 million salary. Brewers’ general manager Doug Melvin said he is disappointed as Braun is a very important player to our organization and to the ballclub and to our performance on the field. Rob Manfred, MLB’s executive vice-president for economics and league affairs, said in a statement, we commend Ryan Braun for taking responsibility for his past actions and added that we all agree that it is in the best interests of the game to resolve this matter. He added we look forward when Ryan returns to him making positive contributions to Major League Baseball, both on and off the field.

Other players tied to Biogenesis in media reports include Melky Cabrera, now with the Toronto Blue Jays, Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli, and Seattle catcher Jesus Montero.

On Tuesday, San Francisco Giants reliever Guillermo Mota was activated from the restricted list after he served a suspension of 100 games for his second positive drug test. Left-hander Jeremy Affeldt has been placed on the paternity list by the Giants to make room on the roster for Mota.

The Giants reliever was suspended for Clenbuterol, which he claimed was in a cough syrup for children. He was previously suspended in 2006 when he was with the New York Mets and the team was eliminated by the St. Louis Cardinals in the playoffs. Mota was traded by the Mets for starting catcher Johnny Estrada. A third positive test would mean a lifetime ban for Mota and he said he would be more careful in the future.

Guillermo Reynoso Mota was born on July 25, 1973 and has pitched for the Montreal Expos, Los Angeles Dodgers, Florida Marlins, Cleveland Indians, New York Mets, and Milwaukee Brewers. Mota is presently with the San Francisco Giants of Major League Baseball. Signed by the New York Mets in 1990 as an infielder, Mota had a batting average of .249 with one home run and one stolen base and amassed a .934 fielding percentage in 43 game when he was assigned to the rookie-league Gulf Coast League Mets in 1993 as a third baseman.

He was moved to the shortstop position and assigned to the single-A Capital City Bombers of the South Atlantic League in the year 1995 and batted .243 and struck out 127 times in 400 at bats while committing 40 errors at shortstop. Mota made a return to St. Lucie Mets in 1996 where he batted .234 with 90 strikeouts in 304 at bats while committing 21 errors and was converted into a pitcher in 1997. In 1997, the Dominican baseball player was assigned to the Cape Fear Crocs of the South Atlantic League and he had a 5–10 record with a 4.36 earned run average (ERA) and 112 strikeouts in 126 innings. In 1999, he started with season with the Ottawa Lynx of the triple-A International League and had a 2–0 record with a 1.89 ERA and five saves in 14 games.

In the year 2003, he had a 6–3 record with a 1.97 ERA in 76 games and went on to become the setup man to closer Éric Gagné in 2004. After being suspended in November 2006 for using performance enhancing drugs, Guillermo Reynoso Mota was re-signed by the Mets to a two-year, $5 million contract on December 7 and was traded on November 20, 2007 to the Milwaukee Brewers.

In 2010, Guillermo Mota signed a minor league contract with the San Francisco Giants and won his first career World Series despite struggling at times during the season. He became one of three players in the history of Major League Baseball to fail a drug test twice when it was shown he tested positive for Clenbuterol. He was suspended for 100 games on May 7, 2012 by MLB after he tested positive for Clenbuterol.

Ryan Braun doesn’t fit the image fans when they hear that he has been accused of using performance enhancing drugs.

After he joined the Milwaukee Brewers in 2007, Braun was voted the NFL‘s Most Valuable Player.

“This stuff will never end up being studied with humans,” Dr. Susannah Briskin, a primary-care sports-medicine physician with Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital in Cleveland said. “Any medical study must start with, ‘Do no harm.’ The problem is, there’s been a lot of harm proven in studying anabolic steroids.”

Ryan Braun, who joined the Milwaukee Brewers in 2007, didn’t fit image fans conjure up when they hear that a baseball slugger has been accused of using performance enhancing drugs.

The player helped drive the Brewers to the playoffs was voted as the Most Valuable Player of the NFL.

“One theory is that anabolic steroids hasten the repair of those muscle fibers, and allow you to work out harder,” Norman Fost, a professor of pediatrics and director of the bioethics program at the University of Wisconsin, said.
