National League MVP

Tests Positive for

Performance-Enhancing Drugs

12/11/2011 3:51 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Newly-voted National League MVP Ryan Braun from the Milwaukee Brewers has tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs -- but the baseball star is challenging the accusations.

According to multiple reports, Braun was tested during the playoffs this year -- and the test showed his system contained elevated levels of testosterone.

28-year-old Braun is fighting the results, telling the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, he's the victim of "highly unusual circumstances" -- adding, "This is all B.S. I am completely innocent."

Braun faces a 50-game suspension if the results are upheld.

Every single athlete in history that has been caught doing performance enhancing drugs denies it and uses a version of that excuse.

he should personally hand his MVP trophy to Matt Kemp, the one who deserved it in the 1st place.

Maybe he woke up frisky that day and his boyfriend treated him to a "protein" shake?

You would be surprised by how many athletes and regular people use steroids for that matter. Just because it doesn't show up on a blood test doesn't mean that they don't use performance enhancing drugs, they only take them in cycles and work this around drug tests.

You would be surprised at how many athletes use performance enhancing drugs they take it in cycles something like X amount of weeks on X amount of weeks off so they regulate it so that the weeks off correlates to the window of time in which drug testing is carried out thus, avoiding testing positive but still given the physical edge. A lot of people use them even regular Joe's.

You need to update this that the substance wasn't a PED, just something banned. So it could be cocaine, but it isn't steroids.

Sweet Jesus. Being from Wisconsin, I never thought I'd see the day Ryan Braun was on TMZ. You made it buddy. He banged a girl I know and didn't tell her he had herpes -- karma is biiiitch, pal. Good luck!

He can deny it all he wants--they found drugs in him. Extremely disappointing--they should take the MVP and give it to the next guy with the most votes. Obviously won while drugged.

Anyone ever say: "You caught me. I thought I could get away with it". Nope, its always....I didn't do it, I'm innocent.

"[H]ighly unusual cir****tances"? Did he somehow "accidentally" get synthetic testosterone, as the MIlwaukee Gerbil-Sentinel states?
