I wouldn't be surprised if MLB win in court. We had a truck driver at my company that got fired after testing positive for cocaine and then got reinstated by the arbitrator. Undeterred, the company took the case to federal court and got the arbitrator's decision overturned.

It would shock me if MLB took it to court.

There may even be language in the contract which states that the arbitration panel is binding and neither side is permitted to challenge in court.

I was a bit surprised they'd ship samples to Montreal? Didn't MLB have anything closer?

The question should be doesn't WADA have anything closer.

Milwaukee to Montreal is not really that far; LA is further away, as is anywhere on the Pacific Coast.

721 Miles ( 1160.3 Kilometers

Milwaukee coordinates:
latitude: 43° 03' North
longitude: 87° 57' West

Montreal coordinates:
latitude: 45° 30' North
longitude: 73° 35' West

True but that's where all the samples are sent.

Braun should count his lucky stars . . .

MLB fires arbitrator, changes language on PEDs so that Braun will not be so lucky next time.

despicable arbitrator, follows the rules the way they are written, not the way one party wanted them read...

The longest serving person in that position.

I dunno - his name is in the clinic's records, and he's listed as owing them money. That's a problem, his weak excuses notwithstanding
