As Major League Baseball continues their investigation of Anthony Bosch’s Biogenesis clinic in Miami, Florida, there are still more names of professional ballplayers released that had a connection with the biggest PED scandal since BALCO.

Sports reporters Jeff Passan and Tim Brown reported late on Tuesday that they had obtained records of now defunct anti-aging clinic Biogenesis and that three of the documents contained the name of Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun.

NEW YORK (AP) -- Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun said he used the person who ran the Florida clinic under investigation by Major League Baseball only as a consultant on his drug suspension appeal last year.
"I have nothing to hide," Braun said in a statement released by his representatives to The Associated Press on Tuesday night.
Earlier in the day, Yahoo Sports...
We’ve seen this before Ryan Braun, the most popular and by far best player on the Milwaukee Brewers is accused of using drugs. Last time he got off on a technicality. This time he got off because he was reviewing the technicality. What in the hell are we even talking about?

‘Have I lied in the past?? Yes I have – I lied so I could live to see another day…’
That quote came out of the end of a recent WWE episode. It was one of Vince McMahon’s long-time rivals facing the music during the program’s final segment.
But while watching the pro wrestling storyline unfold, I couldn’t help but think of the continuing real-life circus of PED scandals...
