The Ryan Braun News is Sad

This writer is not going to write a long post on the news that Ryan Braun has tested positive for performance enhancing drugs. It is preferred to see how the process works out and where the story goes. But the news is sad for baseball and sad for Milwaukee Brewers fans coming off one of their most exciting seasons. It is now possible that the Brewers will lose both of their sluggers to start the 2012 season.

MLB has been on a roll too. All the news was big and exciting. Interest is again peaking in the sport. This news is certainly a bummer and a buzz kill. As many writers have already said, a person is innocent until proven guilty and we'll have to see where this story goes. But in the meantime, most fans will presume Braun guilty until he is proven guilty. That's the way life works.

And sometimes life just sucks.

Update **  As Ken Rosenthal just mentioned on Twitter, Braun has tested positive for a banned substance, not a PED. But it's all semantics in the end, isn't it?
