Ryan Braun: MLB's greatest fallen hero

Posted by Andy
Ryan Braun has allegedly tested positive for a banned substance and faces a 50-game suspension, pending the result of a dispute raised by Braun.

This PED-related suspension would be shocking, considering that Braun was never the target of any suspicion, has just won the NL MVP, led his team to the NLCS, and is very well-liked across all of MLB. No other players who tested positive or allegedly used a banned substance (such Manny Ramirez, Barry Bonds, or Roger Clemens) were both as high-profile and as well-liked as Braun.

In fact, I can't remember the last time a player so popular did something that let down so many people...can you?
