Ryan Braun: 'My day will come'

National League MVP Ryan Braun, who reportedly failed an MLB drug test, says his "day will come" when gossip website TMZ.com 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 TMZ.com folks about the best parking and restaurants at LAX, I'm sure they'd be able to help.

Ryan Braun: 'My day will come'

82 Brewers-

I know you are trying to be impartial when you say "i'm a brewers fan, but..t," but you are completely off your rocker on this one.  First of all, almost every player you know about because of steroids was outted from a list of supposedly anonymous tests that the players agreed to.  Then a bunch of the others were outted from Grand Jury testimony.  Do you know that Grand Juries are part of our Bill of Rights?  Did you also know that they are supposed to be secret as a way to gurantee that Right.  So those guys who were outted when some criminal leaked the grand jury testimony had a much greater expectation of privacy.  Then the rest were revealed as part of a Mitchell Report with non-sworn in witnesses who were part of criminal activities.  Here the accused didn't even get to argue their innocence.  

This second test wasn't even done by MLB, it was done by Braun's own people, so you have no idea when they collected that sample or if the results are verfied.  He was found by the World Doping Agency lab to have high levels of synthetic testosterone in his blood.  You can't run from that.  Even if he was taking a medication for some other ailment like limp d*ck or low libido or hair growth or whatever else you take it for, then he and his people knew well enough to file that with MLB and receive permission via a medical exemption.  He didn't.  

If his excuse that he didn't know the product he was taking had synthetic testosterone in it?  That sounds a lot like Bonds, Tejada, Palmeiro, and the rest of the crew from BALCO.  

So either he knowingly took a testosterone product and hid it from MLB or he's the dumbest guy in the world or he's a liar.  whatever the case, he deserve to be suspended and his on-field results deserve questioning.

Did you say that about OTHER sports figures PRIOR to their day in court...or does this thinking only apply to one of YOUR teams players?????

Ryan Braun: 'My day will come'

I am tired of all the anti Braun talk. I say, let him have his chance in court; if he is found in default than he should pay his dues, but I just cannot see how a test can be twice the highest ever tested one day and normal the next; someone f***** up! Sure I am a Brewers fan but it goes way beyond that. First, ESPN had no right to air this laundry until Braun was able to appeal-everyone else who has ever had a failed test has had that right. Second, I believe in the integrity of Ryan Braun;this whole process has not been fair to him.

Ryan Braun: 'My day will come'

First of all moron, the only thing Braun said in the entire interview was "my day will come", that is not crying, he has hardly said anything about the situation at all, also 2 grammatical mistakes in you're one sentence post so I will assume you're not that smart to begin with.

Haha... I love when people rag on others for grammatical errors while commiting their own in the process. Great work by you, THE Hit Man 23 - not just any hit man. Oh, and free Ryan Braun! Wernt, wernt.

It's one this to test for it, it's another to have a test double what the next highest test ever came out at and then be clean the next day.  Somebody pulled a kramer with the test tubes.

Tired of  Braun crying.  Braun you could have ask MLB before taking anything  so stop you crying just stand up and  take it like a man.

Yeah I mean the thing is people act like he tested positive for high testosterone and will be exhonerated later. He tested positive for a banned substance, a PED, and also had high testosterone. Guilty or not guilty is relative to what he is going to be suspended for and that's taking somethhing he wasn't supposed to.
