The matter of Ryan Braun's positive drug test and resultant 50-game suspension was resolved a week ago, with the Brewers slugger being cleared last Thursday and the suspension nixed. But the dialogue continues -- Braun's attorney David Cornwell has now released a statement, saying that Braun was "properly vindicated":
"Ryan Braun was properly vindicated," Cornwell said, according to the Milwaulee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel. "Both Major League Baseball and Major League Baseball Players Association should be applauded because their Joint Program worked."
Cornwell's statement was in response to a statement from urine collector Dino Laurenzi, Jr., who was responding to an insinuation from Braun that there may have been some tampering with his urine sample.
