Braun’s pee examined optimistic in August for increased androgenic hormone or testosterone, and ESPN unveiled the optimistic analyze in Dec.

Braun has was adament that he did not break baseball’s pharmaceutical contract.

“I am happy and treated by today's current choice,” he said in a declaration. “It is the first step in reestablishing my good name and popularity. We were able to get through this because I am not guilty and in reality on our part.”

MLB expert v. p. Rob Manfred said control “vehemently disagrees” with Das’ choice.

Ryan Braun Intentional Violation


The usa Makers celebrity Ryan Braun will "ultimately be exonerated" of doubt that he used prohibited overall performance increasing drugs during this past season, the left fielder's spokesperson said Saturday.

Braun, the Country wide League's 2011 "Most Useful Player," people a possible 50-game revocation after a pee example examined positive for a dangerous of androgen hormone or testosterone due to a artificial material, according to an ESPN document.

Ryan Braun's spokesperson declined any "intentional violation" of Major Group Football regulations in a document given to CNN Saturday.

The 28-year-old left fielder was voted his league's MVP after batting .332, hitting 33 home runs, producing 111 RBI and stealing 33 bases during the 2011 season. Braun led Milwaukee to the team's first division title in three decades.

Brewers owner Mark Attanasio, in a statement to CNN Sunday, said there is "an incomplete set of facts" and warned against "a rush to judgment."

"Ryan deserves the right to be heard," Attanasio said. "We are committed to supporting Ryan to get to the truth of what happened in this unfortunate situation."

SI: What we know and what we don't know

"We are dealing with an incomplete set of facts and speculation," Attanasio said. "Before there is a rush to judgment, Ryan deserves the right to be heard."

Major League Baseball, which has a policy of not releasing drug test results before they are appealed through arbitration, has not commented on the report.

ESPN cited sources familiar with the case saying a urine test submitted by Braun during the playoffs in October returned a positive result for a high level of testosterone. A second test on the sample indicated it was caused by a synthetic substance, ESPN reported.

"There are highly unusual circumstances surrounding this case which will support Ryan's complete innocence and demonstrate there was absolutely no intentional violation of the program," Braun spokesman Matthew Hiltzik said in Sunday's statement.

"Accordingly we do not have access to any of the facts or knowledge of any of the circumstances that are being circulated in the media with regard to Ryan Braun," Attanasio said.

He did issue a lengthy statement defending Braun as "a model citizen in every sense of the word, both in the Milwaukee community and for the Brewers."

"MLB has put a confidential testing program into place, which I personally support, that has a specific review process that must be followed before determining whether a player is in violation," Attanasio said.

Braun, in his 5th major league season, was selected rookie of the year in 2007.

The revelation comes just days before baseball legend Barry Bonds faces sentencing on an obstruction of justice conviction related to the federal probe into illegal steroids use by pro athletes. Prosecutions are asking for 15 months in prison for the former slugger.

Jorge Posada Last Game With Yankees


Realizes that he probably played his last game as fillets, cut an emotional Jorge Posada short session of its support after the New York Yankees lost Game 5 of assistive listening devices, 3-2 to the Detroit Tigers. Tears came to my eyes when Posada was asked what the fans were meant to him.

"They were impressive," said Posada. "The fans were awesome for this team and me."

La Posada 40 years spoke for 3 minutes and a half before and gently flowing away.

In Game 5 loss, Posada went two-for-4. During the playoffs, he finished 6-for-14 (0429), which was the best on the Yankees. He had a .579 on base percentage.

"It was fantastic," said Yankees manager Joe Girardi, who also got emotional when talking about Posada. "He had a great career and I am sure he will play, and I do not know what to do."

Posada declined to say whether he believed it was his last game as a Yankee. Several times this year, he said he would consider playing for another team if the Yankees do not want him.

Posada, 40, ended his four-year contract for $ 52.4 million. Last winter, the Yankees moved Posada behind the plate, making him a part-time DH. Posada was under his at-bats in a season since 1997 non-injury.

His 344 regular-season-bats, has finished 14 houses and 44 RBI. In a game in May, we removed the most recent against the Boston Red Sox, when Girardi was hitting ninth. Later, during the period, Girardi him on the bench, but every time Posada struggled to earn playing time. He ended up picking up the game-winning hit in the Yankees' AL East-clinching win against the Red Sox last month.

"I am not willing to talk about winter right now," said Executive Director Brian Cashman, the Yankees. GM is also a contract, but is expected to return.

When the Tigers with the right-handed, Posada started each of the five playoff games.

"What he gave us in the playoffs, I do not think there's a proud moment that was George," Girardi said.

Girardi added: "The heart that has shown throughout this series, because Jorge is a great player."

With the Yankees, who want to open the DH position as a resting place Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter and others - and with the appearance of Jesus Montero - the expectation is that Posada will not be offered a contract for 2012.

"Next year everything will be waiting for us all," Cashman said earlier in the week.

Cashman appreciates that Posada has meant more than the Yankees actually began his career at full capacity in 1997.

"And 'certainly one of the first fishermen in this generation," said Cashman. "It 'a Hall of Famer and the border is one of the best receivers in American history."

If Posada is actually finished in the New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera will be sad to see his old friend and teammate, go.

"I definitely lacking, certainly miss him," said Rivera.

Meanwhile, the Yankees ACE CC Sabathia is faced with a decision to return to the Bronx next season. Sabathia, 31, has a withdrawal clause in its seven-year, $ 161 million contract he can use to be a free agent. From Spring Training Sabathia declined to say whether he will use the opt-out or not. Sabathia has four years and $ 92 million to his current contract.

After the Yankees lost, in which Sabathia in relief for the first time in his career, he said "many" will go into his decision, beginning with his family, and "all that matters."

"We just have to wait and see," said Sabathia.

Cashman has already pledged to keep Sabathia as a priority.

"He's our ace," Cashman said. "It occupies a prominent place."

Ready for the regular season at 19-8 with a 3.00 ERA Sabathia. Its 1 1 / 3 innings of relief on Thursday, gets to drive, which raised its series ERA 6.23 8 2 / 3 indoor interactive.

Sabathia earned his money so far. In 2009, his first season with the club, he led the Yankees as World Series by pitching on three days rest after the entire season. During his three seasons, Sabathia is 59-23 with a 3.18 ERA.

"I love it," Sabathia said when asked to play in the Bronx. "I loved from the first day I arrived here."

Sabathia has led the Yankees opt-out to help the fears that would come in the Bronx.

Equipment and Sabathia could work on an extension before Sabathia can negotiate with other teams after the World Series. Sabathia darkness fell at his club to watch the final of the season.

"It's fantastic," said Sabathia. "It's always difficult when you lose."
