Aramis Ramirez expects big boos for Ryan Braun this year

The Brewers opened their regular-season schedule with a home series against the Cardinals, so we haven’t been given a taste of what kind of vitriol Ryan Braun is in for this summer at road parks.

But that will change Monday when Braun and the Brewers head to Chicago for a four-game set against the Cubs. And new teammate Aramis Ramirez, who knows a thing or two about the crowd at Wrigley Field, is expecting the reaction to be rough.

A-Ram spoke about the subject Sunday with Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

“I think it’s going to be ugly for Braun everywhere we go,” Ramirez said. “On the road, it’s going to be tough for him. He knows it. That’s no secret. Plus, he got a taste of it in spring training. Everywhere we go, he was getting booed.”

“But he’s a good player and he’s tough,” the Brewers third baseman concluded. “He’s tough mentally and I think he’s going to be OK. He’s a good enough player to separate that from his game.”

Braun, of course, had a 50-game PED suspension tossed out this offseason on a successful appeal of the sample-collecting process. He’s 4-for-12 with a homer and a walk through three games this year.

    The greatest was hearing Giants fans taunt Braun mercilessly during spring training. oh the irony

      Do Giants fans even acknowledge Barry Bonds anymore?

        The enormous ego, the oversized head, the contrastingly shrunken nads, the backne like a topographical map of the Mendocino Mountain Range, the traveling media circus, the .245 career post-season batting average, or the World Series Championship three years after they finally got up the nerve to blackball him?

    Lying liars who lie get booed

    I know Braun will get booed, no big deal. I just hope that everyone who boos him knows that they have either voluntarily or involuntarily cheered for a steroid user also. Every team has had them.

    Yes, keep defending your cheating “mvp”

      I wouldn’t even call it defending him but everything I wrote is true whether you want to believe it or not.

    Hell, they may Boo Ramirez!

    A-Ram? Really?

    Still waiting to hear this “real story”. Or at least the arbitrator’s decision.

    Not the start the Brew Crew were looking for. Losing the series to the hated Red-Birds is never good. A four-game set against the north-siders should get them back on track – even if the lovable loser fan-base boos Brauny. Still, some positivity came out of this weekend.
