    “Ryan Braun should apologize so we can talk about how insincere and self-serving his apologies are.” –everyone in the next 24 hours. It’s starting already, of course. Buster Olney wrote something already in which he compared Ryan Braun to Lance Armstrong and listed all of the people to whom Braun should apologize. It’s probably not…

  2. What happens if Ryan Braun tests positive next year? Or in 2017?

    Bud Selig

    One thing that is clear from the Ryan Braun suspension is that it was, in some form or another, the product of horse trading. A settlement of sorts given how both sides got something good out of this, all things considered. But there is still an open question here: is this considered Braun’s first offense?…

    Ryan Braun is suspended for the rest of the year, which means a 65 game suspension. Those 65 games will cost him about $3.5 million. It’s an absolute steal for Braun, methinks. Partially because of what he could have faced. If you believe the reports which have flown hither and tither for the past few…

  6. Ryan Braun is baseball’s biggest fraud

    Ryan Braun

    Ryan Braun played the victim when he initially tested positive for steroids after the 2011 season.

Just look at some of Braun’s quotes after he was “vindicated”…

    Bartolo Colon Getty

    Christine Brennan’s latest column for USA Today decries the fact that Bartolo Colon is in the All-Star Game. Why? Because he tested positive for PEDs last year: Colon, and every other performance-enhancing drug user in baseball, should never be allowed to become an All-Star, or win any MLB award. No Cy Young, no MVP, no…
