Braun’s Defending Name Again

Just a year after Ryan Braun successfully appealed a failed test for performance enhancing drugs, he’s finding himself defending his reputation again. Yahoo! Sports released a story last night that said Ryan Braun’s name was in the log of a Florida clinic linked to selling PEDs to other baseball including Alex Rodriguez.  The report said no PED’s were listed with Braun’s name.  Braun issued a statement last night that his lawyers used the clinic in research for fighting his failed test in 2011 and his name was on the list because there was a dispute on compensation for their consultation.
