Ryan Braun

  1. The Brewers are celebrating the 20th anniversary of Robin Yount’s retirement tonight

    Aug 2, 2013, 1:08 PM EDT

    Robin Yount

    2013 wasn’t a very good year for the Brewers to come up with anniversaries. 2012 was the 30th anniversary of the best team the franchise has ever put together, the 1982 Brewers that won 95 games and lost the World Series to the Cardinals in seven games. But 2013? 30 years ago: 87-75, fifth place…

  2. Melky Cabrera hits the DL

    Aug 2, 2013, 9:37 AM EDT

    Melky Cabrera is not having the best year ever. In the past 12 months he has been suspended for PEDs, shut out of his team’s World Series win and subsequent celebration, regulated out of a batting title the rules of baseball specify should have been his and then signed a nice free agent contact, but…

  3. MLB is gonna tell us what it has on A-Rod at some point, right?

    Aug 1, 2013, 3:16 PM EDT

    Bud Selig

    Is Major League Baseball going to show us what it has on Alex Rodriguez?  I feel like it has to at some point, don’t you? Maybe not if they settle. If A-Rod and is legal team agree to take some harsh discipline and part of that is an agreement that MLB keep what it has…

  4. Is Biogenesis casting a shadow over the trade deadline?

    Alex Rodriguez Reuters

    It seems like all baseball news has been overshadowed by the looming Biogenesis suspensions and the circus that is Alex Rodriguez‘s, Major League Baseball’s and the New York Yankees’ public feud. Indeed, as this week began it appeared as though today’s trade deadline would be a mere afterthought. Or, if not an afterthought, that it…

  5. Report: Biogenesis players ready to accept their bans

    Jul 30, 2013, 7:59 PM EDT

    Nelson Cruz, Gary Pettis

    Yahoo! Sports’ Jeff Passan reports that, Alex Rodriguez excepted, the rest of the players involved in the Biogenesis scandal are ready to accept suspensions or 50 games or more. Sources told Passan that the suspensions will come down within 72 hours. The AP is reporting that Friday could be the day. Among those expected to…

  6. Cheating is bad, but are the drugs?

    Jul 30, 2013, 3:22 PM EDT

    Bartolo Colon

    One of the issues many of us have with steroids is that they make players something they’re not. Or so we think anyway. Barry Bonds was practically a superhero in the early part of the last decade. Ryan Braun was probably destined to be a major leaguer, but now we assume that he was never…

  7. MLB waiting to hear from A-Rod on a possible settlement offer

    Jul 29, 2013, 4:30 PM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez

    We are told A-Rod’s Biogenesis discipline is going to come down this week. The New York Daily News reports that today may be the pivotal day in this drama. It’s when Alex Rodriguez must decide if he’s going to take an offer or fight a lifetime ban: Armed with voluminous evidence they believe would warrant…

  8. Biogenesis suspensions likely to be announced this week; A-Rod might be out through 2014

    Joel Sherman and Ken Davidoff of the New York Post have the exclusive: The strong indications are Major League Baseball will announce all the suspensions in the Biogenesis case this week, including one that could cover the rest of this year and all of next year for Alex Rodriguez, The Post has learned. It always…

  9. Hall of Fame weekend “kind of sad”, “not as much excitement”

    Jul 27, 2013, 6:45 PM EDT

    No, Hideki Matsui is not a Hall of Famer

    The Baseball Writers Association of America opted not to elect any new living members to the Hall of Fame for the first time since 1965. Scott Miller of CBS Sports asked some living legends about the atmosphere in Cooperstown, New York, and the sentiment wasn’t very positive. “This year, it’s kind of sad,” former Cardinals…

  10. Zack Greinke on Ryan Braun: “He lied to us”

    Jul 27, 2013, 11:22 AM EDT

    Ryan Braun

    Many of Ryan Braun‘s current teammates have been supportive of him publicly following the announcement of his 65-game suspension for his connections to Biogenesis, but one former teammate isn’t pulling punches. After taking a couple of days to gather his thoughts on the matter, Dodgers right-hander Zack Greinke expressed his disappointment on Braun in comments…

  11. Aaron Rodgers: Ryan Braun lied to me

    Jul 26, 2013, 3:07 PM EDT

    Aaron Rodgers

    Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was one of the most vocal defenders of Ryan Braun during his drug test/appeal drama last year. Rodgers blasted anyone who doubted Braun at the time, saying  “MLB and cable sports tried to sully the reputation of an innocent man” and that they “Picked the wrong guy to mess with.” There…

  12. Fan at Miller Park told to hide their Ryan Braun “Fraud” jersey or be kicked out

    Jul 26, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT

    miller park

    A Miller Park security guard is apparently a big Ryan Braun fan: he threatened a fan with ejection for a Ryan Braun jersey altered to read “Fraud” instead of “Braun”: Karen Eidem says security tapped her on the shoulder while she was standing with friends at the ballpark Wednesday night. Eidem had changed a couple…

  13. Quote of the Day: Pete Rose on the PED cheaters

    pete rose getty

    There are actually a couple of good quotes from Pete Rose in this story from Ted Berg at USA Today. A lengthy one about how, in his view, the PED stuff is bad because it messes with stats and records and that, unlike what he did, what Ryan Braun and the PED cheats have done…

  14. Ryan Braun merchandise sales are up since Monday

    I don’t know if this a function of an angry populace thumbing its nose at the editorial board of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel and it’s “get rid of Braun” jag or simply a matter of hardcore gangster types having a new anti-hero to celebrate, but it’s interesting: Interesting from #Brewers COO Rick Schlesinger in the Milw…

    Everyone wants Ryan Braun to come clean. But he says he can’t. At least not yet: More Ryan Braun: “I know it was difficult for everybody, but I was not, and am still not, legally allowed to say anything yet.” #Brewers — Todd Rosiak (@Todd_Rosiak) July 25, 2013 Pouliot makes a great point on Twitter:…

  16. 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…

  17. Common sense prevails: the BBWAA will not be stripping Ryan Braun’s 2011 MVP award

    Jul 24, 2013, 8:55 AM EDT

    Matt Kemp AP

    There was a time in late 2011-early 2012 when several baseball writers were arguing that the Baseball Writers Association of America should re-vote the NL MVP award in light of Ryan Braun‘s positive drug test. That idea was fraught will all manner of problems and was never seriously considered by the BBWAA. But the meme…

  18. “Get rid of Braun?” Yeah, sure, OK

    Jul 24, 2013, 8:23 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Brewers v Chicago Cubs

    The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel’s editorial about the Ryan Braun stuff is hilarious. And not just for this part, which suggests that Ryan Braun‘s PED use has been so pervasive that it has given him the ability to fly: Braun is paying a pittance to leave one of the worst teams in the majors for a few…

  19. Matt Kemp doesn’t want the 2011 NL MVP award

    Jul 23, 2013, 9:00 PM EDT

    kemp getty

    Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp narrowly lost the 2011 NL Most Valuable Player award to Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun. That the two were separated by about 60 points in voting illustrates just how close the race was. Now that we’ve learned that Braun did, in fact, use performance-enhancing drugs, that race isn’t nearly as close for…

  20. Report: Alex Rodriguez not interested in deal with MLB

    Jul 23, 2013, 6:34 PM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez

    USA TODAY’s Bob Nightengale hears that Alex Rodriguez intends to go down swinging. Two people close to A-Rod told Nightengale that Rodriguez has no intention of negotiating a Biogenesis-related settlement with MLB and that he plans to appeal any suspension handed down. Rodriguez’s penalty is expected to be more severe than the 65-game ban handed…

  21. We still don’t know what the basis of the Braun discipline was

    Jul 23, 2013, 4:37 PM EDT

    Bud Selig defiant

    You’ve heard me blather for two days now — my favorite hate comment so far was one calling me “calcaterr-ible” — so this is more of a links thing. Two good ones. First: Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel talking about the decision making, such as he can determine it, into the length of Ryan…

    Jul 23, 2013, 2:02 PM EDT

    Void

    Though the sea change we’re experiencing in Major League Baseball’s drug testing regime is undeniable, the “we should get tougher!” crowd easily has the loudest voice in the grand shouting match that is our current baseball discourse. And easily the most fashionable get-tough argument in that crowd is the one which goes “players should have…

  23. Stop it: Ryan Braun is not Lance Armstrong

    Jul 23, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    braun getty taller

    I think I’ve been pretty clear in saying that Braun (a) is a liar; (b) is a cheater; and (c) should count himself lucky that he only got 65 games. On radio spots today I’ve opined that he’s probably some sort of sociopath who I wouldn’t trust as far as I could throw. I won’t…

  24. Quote of the Day: Skip Schumaker brings the noise on Braun and PED users

    Jul 23, 2013, 9:40 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Dodgers v San Diego Padres

    To underscore the earlier post about where we are now with PEDs in baseball, check out what Skip Schumaker had to say after the Dodgers game last night: “I can’t stand it. It (PED use) needs to be eliminated from the game. I have an autographed Ryan Braun jersey hanging in my baseball room at…

  25. Who cares what Ryan Braun said yesterday?

    Jul 23, 2013, 9:13 AM EDT

    ryan braun getty

    I touched on this some last night when I talked about how Ryan Braun doesn’t answer to anyone apart from his teammates, those he personally lied to and people he directly harmed as a result of his lying. Those are folks to whom he owes apologies, not anyone else. Certainly not the general public. But…
