What about the fact that he asked for a blood test to ensure it was really his urine and MLB said no. If this would incriminate him more why not do it? Maybe the said urine who was in some dudes basement for a few days was not Brauns. We will never know. I just find it weird that someone who hadnt popped his whole career all of the sudden does, asks for a blood test to make sure it is his urine, gets denied, then finds out this urine was in a guys basement for a few days and it is 3x the norm. Then Braun just has a better MVP season and not testing positive.

They still weren't testing for hgh. I love people that assume he was clean. This is the same statement said about arod the last time he got caught. Turns out he was still cheating. There is so much money involved, they cheat. I'd guess half the players are still finding/looking for ways to cheat. And its not just baseball. Basketball, golf, etc, just way to much money to be made. If cheating can keep you playing a few more years and you can get a few more million, pretty tough to turn it down. Plus once they are great and get caught, they don't wont to suck, they will do anything at that point to keep an edge.

Also keep in mind that Braun went to the University of Miami, a university with a less than sterling reputation, and in the city which is now emerging as the epicenter of the current scandal.

Look at the Lance Armstrong situation and tell me anyone else using and/or lying about it, shocks you. A person testing clean in 2012 means very little, when they weren't even testing for one of the main drugs the players use. Whats worse is that the players union, who is so for player safety, is who won't allow the test.
