Turns out a 16 year old blogger broke the Braun story a full nine days ago.

http://bloguin.com/theoutsidecorner/2012-articles/february/sixteen-year-old-blogger-scoops-everyone-on-the-ryan-braun-ped-story.html

Sounds like a young Boz in the making. "The story seems unlikely, but who knows? It may hold to be true..."-- so let's go with it!

Still, he turned out right, trusted his source, and scooped everyone by nine days.

That is what Boz would argue if it was him.

It also reminds me of that hack on Twitter, what was it? INSIDEmlb or something?

NOTLD why the hate for Boswell?  He has a forum for his opinion, you have yours ... he gets paid to do it. 

And we all have a forum here to speak our opinion. 

I don't know why you keep attacking him.

I think that about sums that up. Unless it is written in the WNFF by-laws I can't express my opinion.

no you can and i enjoy reading your blog (A LOT). 

but you continue to knock boswell, who is well respected in the baseball circle (whether you like his columns or not).

And I have every right to knock him just as you have every right to pull out the LAC card when you see fit. It is just my opinion: if Boz wasn't writing baseball columns he'd be working in supermarket tabloids. And I do read his articles, as much as I can, but certainly not for substance.

God, this Ryan Braun thing is getting to be more and more a joke as I read up on it. It is like the Roger Clemens trial all over again. Another juicer gets away with it because of some freak, bullcrap thing. And I'm shocked the MLB is pissed as they are. I would have thought they would have done everything in their power to make sure their MVP Golden Boy wasn't found guilty. What a mess.

Did you see where they're likely going to sue in federal court to get the ruling overturned?

They must be convinced he's guilty... and to that point, Braun has never really argued that he wasn't.

haha Boswell has nothing to do with LAC. 

and in fact maybe that kid is the next you in training - a blogger, instead of a newspaper columnist.  (and no that's not a slight)

This was my biggest worry, now players are going to rail against drug testing and we'll be back to the steroid era in no time.

very unorthodox presser.

linty, i hope that's not the case ... as you said, it had been working for a while.

He called the process fatally flawed. You'll start seeing players say that.

As for this presser, Braun has been impressive and knows his crap.

It's just amazing something like this happens.  The result should go two directions: 1) guilty and you get punishment, 2) non-guilty and you're clear.

Another black eye on baseball.

Still love the sport though, absolutely my favorite.

I wonder what the fan reception to Braun at Miller park will be.

I'm sure Braun, Bonds and Clemens are going to start a club called the "Acne Small Pee-Pee Club" where shots are taken in syringes.

What I'm going to find interesting is if Braun manages to end his career with HOF numbers, will voters treat this as a positive or a negative test?

probably.

Sources also told Munson that there was doubt over whose urine was actually being tested. Braun offered to take a DNA test to confirm whose urine was in the sample, but Major League Baseball declined. However, an MLB source told ESPN's Mike Golic that Braun's side backed off of the offer to take a DNA test.

The article also says the sample was triple sealed.  It also doesn't appear that waiting 3 days would impact the test.  So there is some legitimate doubt that the sample wasn't Braun's.

nice leaps of logic, maybe according to the letter of the rule it was the three days
