First they get exiled to the AL west, then Pujols follows them, then Braun ends up being out 1/3rd of the season meaning the NL Central could be completely wide up this season. And meanwhile, the Astros get to contend with Texas and Anaheim. They just can't win.

If MLB let him take the test and he fails it's over and done and nobody would know about it. If he passes and it wasn't his sample then they are in the same boat as now. Most likely he would have failed the DNA test.
It's very likely that MLB refused because
1) They don't want to set a precedent for having to continuously DNA test all specimens taken throughout the process to make sure it's still the same person's specimen; and
2) They didn't want to give any legitimacy to the idea that this might not have been his specimen. By allowing such a test, they'd be saying "you know, we're not sure either."
Now, though, if they can get a de novo review in court, I bet they'd go for it.

Bud Selig loves Milwaukee so much that he once allowed an All Star game to finish as a tie in that city.
