In a week of shocking moves, like Jose Reyes and Mark Buehrle signing with the Marlins and Albert Pujols signing with the Angels out of nowhere, the biggest and most surprising news has just broken. That news is that Ryan Braun, the 2011 National League Most Valuable Player and one of the most respected players in the game both on and off the field, has tested positive for performance enhancing drugs—or PEDs.
