“We won because the truth is on my side,” Braun said as teammates listened from the stands at the Brewers facility in Phoenix. He stood alone at a microphone at Milwaukee Brewers spring training camp in Arizona and told MLB (Major League Baseball) what it could do while in drug testing program process. Ryan
The very best legal advice possible supported Braun to win. The Associated Press had this as a report:
‘Braun detailed how the urine sample he provided on Oct. 1, the day the Brewers opened the playoffs, was not delivered to Federal Express until Oct. 3. Baseball’s drug agreement calls for samples to be delivered to FedEx on the same day they are collected.
And so, on Thursday night, the arbitrator with a Jedi’s name — Shyam Das — ruled in Braun’s favor. It’s the first time an appeal of this nature at the major-league level has been sustained. And it’s pretty simple as to why. No mind tricks were necessary. Perhaps Braun’s legal team could have fought the suspension in other ways, but they didn’t need to. Braun had MLB dead to rights on the rules.
No matter what the sample collector did with Braun’s urine — even if he kept it safe in a special urine-only refrigerator with deadbolt locks and a pee guard dog — it doesn’t matter. The rules say he had to express the sample to the testing facility on the same day, and he didn’t.’
Braun has been privately telling Gaby Sanchez, the Marlins first baseman about the something wrong in drug testing. He told his friend and former University of Miami teammate that he was ‘wrongly accused’ over a positive drug test and said it to the public Friday.
“I am the victim of a process that completely broke down and failed,” Braun said one day after his 50-game suspension was overturned on appeal, calling it as the fatally flawed process.
Braun also showed his disappointment toward the fact in the judicial process– which put him as a part of a process where you’re 100 percent guilty until proven innocent and it’s the opposite of the American judicial system– and to the media which have leaked the inaccurate info.
“Despite the fact there have been many inaccurate, erroneous and completely fabricated stories regarding this issue, I’ve maintained the confidentiality of this process,” Braun said. “There’s never been a ‘personal medical issue,’ I’ve never had an STD many of the original stories reported by the original network have continued to live on and it’s sad that people continue to leak information that’s inaccurate.”
