‘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 in baseball and other sports. I thought of Rafael Palmeiro, Lance Armstrong, Alex Rodriguez…
And now very possibly Ryan Braun.
Just ten days ago Braun appeared at the Milwaukee Brewers fan-fest talking how happy he was to have a quiet, controversy-free off-season. It just seemed way too good to be true.

After having a positive test overturned last Spring, Ryan Braun has been linked to PEDs once again as his name has shown up in Biogenesis records.

Yahoo! 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. Last week, the New Times of Miami reported that Biogenesis and its founder Anthony Bosch had allegedly provided performance-enhancing drugs to other...
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...
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. The newest release of names included Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli and Orioles third baseman Danny Valencia, but the biggest name was the...
