These are very trying times for baseball. Not just for the players who have been accused in the recent biognesis scandal, but for the game itself, as the integrity of the game is all but lost.

And while Alex Rodriguez may be in the most heat simply for being the biggest star to be tied into this mess, Milwaukee Brewers star Ryan Braun isn’t sitting too pretty either. Braun was actually the first of this recent wave of players to be called out, after he was suspended 65 games without pay and set the bar for guys like A-Rod to go down the way he did (until he appealed and won, of course).

Now, Ryan makes headlines again after making some rather preposterous claims. The 29-year-old California native is now saying that urine sample collector, Dino Laurenzi Jr., was biased because of the fact that Braun is Jewish, and also, the fact that he is a Cubs fan. This comes according to a recent Yahoo! Sports report via ESPN.

Could Ryan Braun be telling the truth? Most definitely. However, is he still responsible for taking performance enhancing drugs? 100 percent. He already made this admission in a statement immediately after he was busted:

“I realize now that I have made some mistakes. I am willing to accept the consequences of those actions.”

What are you even trying to argue now? You are a guilty man. Finish off your suspension and get on with your life. Then again, losing $3.25 million would have anyone talking crazy.
