Matt Kemp

Don't Call Ryan Braun a Cheater

Los Angeles Dodgers star Matt Kemp has Ryan Braun's back -- claiming the reigning National League MVP shouldn't be branded as a cheater ... despite reports he tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs.

Kemp -- who finished 2nd to Braun in the MVP voting this year -- was at The Grove in L.A. last night when we asked about the allegations surrounding Braun.  Kemp told us, "Nobody's proven anything man ... we don't know anything."

He added, "That's a good dude. That's my homie."

Braun's rep has adamantly denied the accusations -- and according to reports, the Milwaukee Brewers player plans to file an appeal with Major League Baseball in an effort to avoid a 50 game suspension.

Just because he says he didn't cheat, doesn't mean he didn't. MLB doesn't lie. Cheaters do. I am disappointed in these guys, can't they man up and do the time for their crime? Did they really think they wouldn't get caught? Idiots.

This guy of all people should be calling him a cheater. You came in 2nd, dude! You think an NL MVP wouldn't get you a few extra mil come contract time? Oh, and what else besides a failed drug test do you need to know this guy cheated? Stupid scientists, can't prove s--t with their beekers and test tubes!!

Get your facts straight TMZ, he didn't test positive for performance enhancing drugs it was for a banned substance, which nobody knows which one yet, but was specifically told it was performance enhancing.
