60 Minutes reported yesterday that someone from Alex Rodriguez' camp leaked documents earlier this year implicating Ryan Braun and teammate Francisco Cervelli to Biogenesis. Initial reaction has been mixed, with A-Rod defenders and detractors taking on their usual roles. This new tidbit on the A-Rod saga makes sense, given his recent public relations missteps. If MLB's implications that A-Rod directed other players to Biogenesis, then it would make sense that A-Rod would have knowledge of who else went there. The leaking on un-redacted documents however gives credence to the rumors that A-Rod attempted to impede the investigation by purchasing documents from Biogenesis employees.
What would make even more sense, in the case of a player like Braun, is if a connection could be found between himself and Rodriguez. Interestingly enough, Braun's bio on Jockbio.com (http://www.jockbio.com/Bios/R_Braun/R_Braun_bio.html) shows a clear connection between the two.
Ryan Braun transitioned from shortstop to third base for his Junior year at Miami. Coach Jim Miller thought Braun was a better fit on the hot corner. Miller went so far as to arrange a phone call between Braun and Alex Rodriguez, who had made the same transition for the Yankees the year before. The write up on JockBio.com indicates that A-Rod shared insights and helped Braun's transition go smoothly.
Braun and Rodriguez had additional contact, including share workouts at Miami Facilities, in the winter of 2005. This was after A-Rod had tested positive for PEDs. The fact that the two worked out together is potentially damning, although certainly not proof of anything. It is perhaps most interesting that when news of A-Rod's positive test broke in 2009, Braun was one of his biggest defenders. At the time Braun indicated that he had never even considered using PEDs.
None of this is conclusive evidence of anything, certainly, but it should raise a lot of additional questions. I am certain all of this is in the MLB files, but it's not something that has been spoken of much in the press since this all broke.
