That same policy states that nothing is to be made public until after the appeals process. In short that means that we shouldn't know ANYTHING about this.
Players rights are supposed to be protected and an announcement made about a positive drug test only after an appeal is lost.
Ryan Braun will NEVER get his reputation back, there will always be a cloud of suspicion over his head and that is completely the fault of Major League Baseball. By leaking the positive test to ESPN they harmed him irreparably, permanently.
Ryan Braun should sue Major League Baseball for the harm they have done to his reputation. He will not do that as Braun has certainly proven through this process that he has more integrity than the leakmiesters at Major League Baseball.
