National League’s MVP fails drug test

Braun, 28, is challenging the results through a three-person appeals panel, saying in a statement that he is a victim of “highly unusual circumstances”  that triggered the violation. Braun’s positive test was first reported Saturday by ESPN. The positive result came from a test during the playoffs, before Braun’s Brewers were eliminated from their NL championship series by the St. Louis Cardinals. The test apparently showed elevated levels of testosterone and was then sent to the World Anti-Doping Agency lab in Montreal for a more sophisticated test known as a carbon isotope test (CIR), which revealed the levels were caused by exogenous or synthetic testosterone. For all baseball fans, this is another incident they will want to forget. It was only 8 months ago that we reported in this blog about Manny Ramirez retiring after failing a drugs test for a second time in three seasons. Braun is going to appeal, but considering that no player has yet successfully appealed a positive test result in 13 tries, it seems unlikely.]]>
