National League MVP Ryan Braun, who reportedly failed an MLB drug test, says his "day will come" when gossip website spotted him coming out of Los Angeles International Airport.

There's really not much more to this video than that, but it is Braun on video talking -- albeit briefly -- about the charges against him.

I'm guessing TMZ has people with video cameras stationed at LAX all the time, waiting for them to come out and then ask about the affairs of the day. I'd love to talk to the folks about the best parking and restaurants at LAX, I'm sure they'd be able to help.

Ryan Braun: 'My day will come'

Funny, all you have named have been banned, locked up, or looked down on by MLB. I would be ashamed to ne mentioned in the class of people you listed. Cheater is a cheater like a killer (OJ) is a killer.

Ryan Braun: 'My day will come'

Braun's levels stated as "the highest in history" is all relative...since MLB's (admitted) "history" of PED testing is only a few years...the PED patholgy is different, but the payday is still the same....if a .280 hitter with 22 HR power can cheat genetics and become a .300 hitter with 35 HR, it can mean the difference between a long term deal of $125 Million or more, and a 3 year offer of $50 Million or less....what's a little $5 mil suspension ? It's less than the tax would be on the money they would have missed, if they hadn't cheated.

Barry Bonds would have been a a first ballot Hall of Famer WITHOUT PEDS...but he was probably a 600 career HR with a high of 55 in a season, kind of Famer, without them....not 762 and 73...AND, he would have earned about $100 million less over a career that wouldn't have seen him hit 350 HR's after age 35.  

In my opinion, PED's are pervasive in ALL pro sports where the industry brings in Billions of dollars, and have been for a long time. MLB is in a catch-22 situation now; while MLB ignored the issue of PED's for a decade and a half, 100-plus years of MLB milestones and benchmarks before PED's were made a complete mockery, and now MLB can't afford the bad PR of continued test failures...

Bud Selig or MLB hasn't been proved to be much more forthcoming and trustworthy than the players have they ? I'm not even sure they test ALL the players, or would actually release accurate results if they did. MLB needs to test ALL the players, and issue APPROPRIATE penalties, or stop testing at all...ask Congress why baseball is a primary PED concern but the NFL or NBA isn't.. Get's BUSINESS.  Give Bud Selig a polygraph and ask him if he thinks PED's were bad for baseball when McGwire, Sosa and Bonds were chasing HR records.

Until there are penalties that TRULY punish players (and others who profit from them), nothing is going to change much.

Ryan Braun: 'My day will come'

It don't look good for Braun. If he is dirty then all this "My Day Will Come" talk will make him look even worse. If he is dirty it would be better to come out and say it!

Ryan Braun: 'My day will come'

He is as quiet as a mouse which speaks volumes. .

Volume is irrelevant. Pete Rose was loud, OJ Simpson was loud, Raphael Palmeiro was loud . . .

I'll wait for all the facts to come out.

Ryan Braun: 'My day will come'

All I know is that if I was falsely accused and could afford the legal representation and the specialist to dispose of these claims as he can I would be screaming bloody murder. He is as quiet as a mouse which speaks volumes. .

Ryan Braun: 'My day will come'

I will not quickly rush to judge Braun before the results of the follow up tests come in. What makes his case interesting is the fact that his levels were recorded as the highest in history. I wouldn't think Braun would be that stupid to take that much, but who knows. It makes you wonder if there really was something messed up with the sample they tested. If it turns out Braun is clean and he was telling the truth, then that would be a good thing for baseball. If it turns out that he actually did take steroids, then he deserves to be among the names of Bonds and McGwire. Major League Baseball should then also do the correct thing and strip him of his MVP title and give it to Kemp.

Ryan Braun: 'My day will come'

Normally I would say LIAR and move on with this subject... But, for some reason..I beleive him. And I am not even a Brewer fan so No bias their. But whatever the case, Lets, let this whole thing play out before we all convict him of something that he may very well be innocent of.
