Remember when Ryan Braun managed to avoid getting busted for PEDs by having the testing chain broken? It appears the Milwaukee Brewers star may not be so lucky this time as his name has been found in the records of the Biogenesis clinic, which has links to performance enhancing drugs.

This is the same clinic that has ties to Alex Rodriguez and some other notable stars. This means that some bad news could be on the horizon for guys like Braun. He may have avoided the PED ban the first time, but he may not be so lucky this time.
It seemed that Braun had saved his reputation after the mess a year ago, but that will go out the window with this. If you are associated with these drugs more than once, the public is not going to forgive and forget. You are going to have to prove that you are innocent, time and time again. A guy like Braun is going to have a hard time explaining his side of the story.
This is going to be a story to watch in the coming days and weeks. If the MLB decides to hand out suspensions based on this list and its findings, it will be trouble for the guys and the teams that are involved. We will see how this all goes down, but it can’t be good.
