You can still get a Braun jersey at the MLB.com shop

Ryan Braun shirt

While the Brewers’ portal to the MLB.com shop area is now Ryan Braun free, the Braun jerseys themselves are easy enough to find and are still marked at full price. An authentic Braun home jersey costs $298.99 through MLB.com, the same price one would pay for a Brewers jersey featuring the name and number of Jean Segura, Corey Hart or Rickie Weeks instead.

The only nod to Braun’s current status would seem to be that he’s been removed from the Brewers’ player shop links, which features Segura, Carlos Gomez, Weeks, John Axford, Aramis Ramirez and Yovani Gallardo. The Gomez link, though, doesn’t actually bring up anything Gomez related. It just features personalized jerseys, instead. Axford, at least, has a t-shirt.

    Sweet! This will make burning him in effigy way more realistic.

      Pretty expensive bonfire though. Think I’ll just write “8” on a t-shirt with a Sharpie and go get some skewers and marshmallows.

        It just ain’t the same and you know it.

      • raysfan1 - Jul 24, 2013 at 2:11 PM

        Yeah, but eating the s’mores will make up for it

      • yahmule - Jul 24, 2013 at 2:51 PM

        Its settled then, we’re doing it at your house.

    If you pay extra, can you get it with number 65?

    “An authentic Braun home jersey costs $298.99 through MLB.com”

    Do they have any artificially enhanced Braun jerseys?

    • paperlions - Jul 24, 2013 at 1:23 PM

      That is what “authentic” means, isn’t it?

  4. norvturnersneck - Jul 24, 2013 at 1:21 PM

    Why would it be any different? Or not there?

    • yahmule - Jul 24, 2013 at 1:32 PM

      Because the NFL went straight Orwell on Aaron Hernandez in their efforts to make him an unperson and we’re stretching the illegal drug users are regarded as worse than murderers routine as far as it will go.

      • jcmeyer10 - Jul 24, 2013 at 1:48 PM

        Stalin was impressed by the speed at which his memory has been erased from football.

  5. jaturso - Jul 24, 2013 at 1:28 PM

    Why wouldn’t it be? He’s still on the team (at least in the broadest sense of the term), hasn’t been accused of murder, or beating his wife (if he has one – don’t know/don’t care). This game, at least for the MLB muckity-mucks, has ALWAYS been about money. If they can sucker morons into spending three hundred on some douchebag’s jersey, why wouldn’t they?
    After all, in the words of Michael Corleone, “It’s not personal. It’s strictly business.” Not that it’s right, but it’s the reality.

    • heyblueyoustink - Jul 24, 2013 at 1:46 PM

      That’s exactly it. He didn’t, allegedly, kill someone, like Hernandez, he cheated like many others before him.

      Doesn’t mean MLB can’t continue to make money off of him. Though $298 is pretty stiff for a shirt that could provide you with super powers.

      • historiophiliac - Jul 24, 2013 at 3:38 PM

        That’s a pretty expensive “Kick Me” sign.

    Off-topic, but not really.

    That Skip Schumaker quote about “Braun should be suspended for life”….you know, that is rather interesting coming from a guy whose hitting coach is Mark McGwire, and who has worked on his hitting with McGwire during the off-season as far back as 2008.

    • proudlycanadian - Jul 24, 2013 at 1:33 PM

      McGwire did not lie in front of Congress. When confronted, he pled the 5th.

      • yahmule - Jul 24, 2013 at 1:42 PM

        He was sweating more than Nixon.

      • paperlions - Jul 24, 2013 at 1:46 PM

        So?

        Braun didn’t lie in front of congress either, he lied to the public…but then…so does everyone that pleads not guilty to shit they did.

        In any case, Schumaker doesn’t care about the lying, but the PED use and thinks a life-time ban should exist for first-time offenders after spending years training and working with a guy that spent about 10 yrs of his career using PEDs, which were against MLB rules at the time (just like amphetamines were), even if MLB didn’t have an official mechanism for testing or punishment.

      • DelawarePhilliesFan - Jul 24, 2013 at 2:03 PM

        I could be mistaken, but I don’t believe he pleaded the 5th, I think he just did not answer then pivoted.

        You know, like when my boss asks what I did all day, “I’m not here to talk about what I did today, I am here to talk about the future”

    • unclemosesgreen - Jul 24, 2013 at 2:05 PM

      You really have to draw distinctions between eras. McGwire did it when *everyone* did it and players weren’t the subject of constant testing. To do it now when the testing regimens are so much stricter and better is just plain stupid. Context matters.

      • paperlions - Jul 24, 2013 at 2:18 PM

        I know context matters….but you are still saying that you think a guy should be banned for life for doing the same thing the guy standing next you was doing for about a decade….and it WAS against the rules when McGwire did it, baseball just lacked the ability to do anything about it (and really, no one cared that much anyway).

      • DJ MC - Jul 24, 2013 at 2:19 PM

        I’m not so sure we can assume that the numbers have gone down so much. Players are still failing tests, and this Biogenesis group involves a bunch of players who mostly haven’t failed tests. They also surely aren’t the only such lab out there.

        We may never know how many players were using over the years, but we also may never know how many are right now.

    In other news, you can still get a BJ Upton jersey at the MLB.com shop, despite the fact that he has not been present on a baseball diamond since last season.

  8. yankeepunk3000 - Jul 24, 2013 at 2:12 PM

    damn 298? why is it so expensive??? I bought a Rivera home jersey with his seasons played patch and it was 120? why the hell is it 300 on MLB??? crap tastic

  9. steelers88 - Jul 24, 2013 at 2:44 PM

    Does the name say Braves on it? Or am I going crazy.

    • gerryb323 - Jul 24, 2013 at 2:59 PM

      I actually did a double take there too. It does say Brewers, but I’ve got to think they are “throwbacks” to mimic the old Milwaukee Braves unis.

  10. psuorioles - Jul 24, 2013 at 4:45 PM

    $300 for a jersey???

  11. Anoesis - Jul 24, 2013 at 7:43 PM

    “You can still get a Braun jersey at the MLB.com shop”

    But why would you?
