We don’t get many shots at the Big Leagues, and even fewer at professional sports stardom.

So when the Hebrew Hammer has problems, it’s Bad for The Jews.

As reported at JSOnline, Braun drug test positive:

Did Ryan Braun cheat to become the 2011 National League most valuable player or is he the innocent victim of a premature report?

That  was the question being asked across the baseball world Saturday with  the stunning news that the Milwaukee Brewers’ star leftfielder tested  positive for a performance-enhancing drug and faced a 50-game  suspension, according to a report by ESPN’s “Outside the Lines.”

No  one associated with Braun, Major League Baseball or the Brewers would  comment publicly on the report because the positive test is being  appealed through an arbitration process that is ongoing. It was unknown  how long that process could take.

In a late-night text message,  Braun said he wanted to hold a news conference to give his side of the  story and the details of the entire situation but was advised not to  while the appeal process is ongoing.

“I can’t wait to get that opportunity,” Braun said. “This is all B.S. I am completely innocent.”
