Ryan Braun has been putting up numbers since his debut in 2007. During his rookie season, he had one of the greatest freshmen campaigns in history. He put up a .324 batting average coupled with 34 HRs and 97 RBIs. In his young 6-year career he's averaging 37 homers and 119 RBIs a season. He also joined the 30/30 club in 2011 when he hit 33 HRs and stole 33 bases. The baseball world was disappointed when reports surfaced in 2011 that Braun tested positive for an elevated level of testosterone and a banned substance. Facing a 50-game suspension, Braun won an appeal on a technicality resulting in the suspension being overturned—the first time a player was successful in appealing a drug test. Apparently the man who handled the sample broke protocol by taking the urine sample home instead of delivering it to the lab, although, the seal was still intact. Ryan took a second test in which it showed normal levels of testosterone. However he wants to spin it, Ryan was caught cheating and got lucky that someone slipped up.
