Ryan Braun sticking it to MLB

Braun having another MVP season

June 10, 2012; Milwaukee, WI, USA;   Milwaukee Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun (8) during the game against the San Diego Padres at Miller Park.  Mandatory Credit: Benny Sieu-US PRESSWIREReigning NL MVP is having a start most didn't think was possible. Braun's current numbers are:  .313 BA, 22 HR and 55 RBI. By the way, Prince Fielder is now in Detroit. After Braun won an appeal and had his 50-game suspension overturned by MLB due a technicality, most fantasy owners avoided Braun like the plague.

Most people thought if he actually tested for high levels of testosterone that his numbers had to drop off, because MLB is most likely testing him daily now. I actually had Braun fall into my lap with the 8th pick. He has been nothing short of a godsend (my team sits in first place).

Now we can all speculate whether or not there is now something new on the market that goes undetectable for these random tests MLB does periodically. I mean do you see the season David Ortiz is having in Boston at the age of 36? How about Paul Konerko for that matter? Jim Thome is 63 and still hits bombs.  I'm sure seeing Braun do what he is doing just infuriates MLB, knowing he beat the system due to incompetence.

With Prince Fielder and Albert Pujols in the American league and Matt Kemp on the DL (will he ever play again?), Braun is in good shape to win another MVP. I mean unless the Mets keep winning and R.A. Dickey wins both Cy Young and MVP like Justin Verlander did. Yeah, I highly doubt that as well.

You do realize those guys were easy targets because they looked like pro wrestlers swinging bats. Braun's size has yet to increase to a level that would raise a red flag. Perhaps he can still slip up and get busted. Anyone think Joey Bats isn't using something?
