Jon Heyman from CBS Sports has a few reassuring words for Brewers and Yankees fans on his Twitter account:

“that ped rumor thats been floating out there today is compete BS, and thats capital BS. lets move on.”

Heyman is referring to the rumor I talked about two days ago, which was that Braun, and the Yankees’ Robinson Cano, Curtis Granderson and Alex Rodriguez were all facing 50 game suspensions for testing positive for banned substances. The rumor spread like wildfire on Twitter and sports blogs, even eliciting responses from mainstream sports writers, including ESPN’s Buster Olney.

Heyman, while sometimes a subject of criticism from fans and other writers, is nevertheless a much more credible source than “The Dog and Pony Show”, the blog where the rumor originated.

Still, it will most likely be impossible to know for sure whether the story is true or not until at least a couple months from now.
