As a Brewers fan, this is devastating. My friends and I are just shell shocked right now. Our entire next season is ruined and our memories of last season tarnished forever, unless there's some miracle lab explanation that even the writers of CSI Miami would find implausible.

As a Milwaukee native and Brewers fan I am crushed. And to reiterate what people have said, I have never heard anything but good things about Brauney as a man. After Brett's penis I don't know if we Wisconsinites can take another shattered icon.

It's only a little extra testosterone, what's the big deal? Fuck me.
<br>Apparently there was a second test that his camp claims proves differences between the first and second tests and makes the first test illegitimate.
<br>But no one has ever successfully appealed a positive test.
<br>This sucks something fierce. It'd be like if Denard tested positive after just winning a big ten MVP award and leading us to a rose bowl.
<br>He's the face of our franchise for basically this entire decade for God sakes.
<br>My favorite player since Yount and I'm not handling this well.
<br>Found out in some texts from my guys while at a dinner theatre for a christmas show with my pregnant wife Needless to say it was sifficult to maintain my "christmas spirit" Shitbitchhelldamnassfuckshit!!!
<br>Holding out hope that there's some plausible explanation but his legacy is tarnished, only a matter of how much.
<br>I said no one would ever surprise me but I'll be freakin damned this surprised the shit out of me. Shame on me I suppose.

The report indicated that elevated levels of testosterone were found in Braun’s system and a more comprehensive test found that the testosterone was synthetic, and not produced naturally by Braun’s body.

The report indicated that Braun had a high level of epitestosterone, a naturally produced substance that appears typically in a 1-to-1 ratio with testosterone in the body. The report indicated that once the ratio is 4-to-1 or higher, the player is officially positive.

Thank you baseball for continuing to prove (to me anyways) why you suck as a sport. If a player as high profile as Braun thinks he can avoid detection then i'm guessing there are many more still trying to cheat at all levels of the game.

They should just say fuck it and leagalize everything like that SNL skit years ago on the "all steriod olympics". What a joke.
