Braun to make speech at BBWAA dinner Saturday

Ryan BraunBy C. Trent Rosecrans

National League MVP Ryan Braun will appear at this Saturday's Baseball Writers Association of America dinner, as CBSSports.com Insider Jon Heyman reported earlier this month. But the question remains if he'll say anything regarding his positive drug test last season?

Braun's spokesman, Matthew Hiltzik, told the New York Times on Wednesday that Braun would show up, accept the award and make a short speech.

However, Braun, who hasn't made any public statements since news broke that he'd failed the drug test in October, isn't expected to do any interviews.

Braun, and other winners of the BBWAA awards, are expected to attend the dinner. It seems unlikely that he will address the failed test before his appeal is ruled upon by MLB.

Braun and his representatives have steadfastly denied any wrongdoing, while admitting the positive drug test.

Oh, the irony of an Ohio State fan crying about cheating.

What a piece of crap. Baseball writers are a complete joke for allowing this cheater to get an award.

Well, all you Braun haters will just have to live with it I guess, he's getting the MVP despite all your whining and crying. So he tested positive, even if he gets suspended, he'll be back on the roster 1/3 of the way thru the season. Of course, you'll still keep trashing the guy, that's your right, but you know, nobody is listening to what you say and nobody cares either. And of course, all of you have no secrets that you wouldn't mind revealing in public, right? What a bunch of tools.

The other players accused had major body changes and nothing crazy with their results.  His results being 2x the level of the next highest tells me something aint right.  Let the commission rule before throwing him under the bus.

You're a negative idiot. He is a top player and wasn't using steroids. He tested positive for elevated testosterone, something you would know nothing about. Keep rooting for your Padres

Brewers fans... It must be nice living in a fantasy world and and being in denial about Braun. If you give me the argument that his stats never changed, it could also be said that he has been using his whole career.
