He says his name was connected to the clinic because of legal advice from last year.
A short time ago Ryan Braun released the following statement on today's Yahoo story:
During the course of preparing for my successful appeal last year, my attorneys, who were previously familiar with Tony Bosch, used him as a consultant. More specifically, he answered questions about T/E ratio and possibilities of tampering with samples.
There was a dispute over compensation for Bosch's work, which is why my lawyer and I are listed under "moneys owed" and not on any other list.
I have nothing to hide and have never had any other relationship with Bosch.
I will fully cooperate with any inquiry into this matter.
Braun is listed as owing more money than most others in the gathered reports, with this Adam McCalvy note mentioning that Braun's name appears near "RB 20-30k" on one document.
Again, we're still early in this story and it's impossible to predict what's next with any level of certainty, but at the very least this seems like a plausible denial.
