    Last night Ryan Braun took the field just moments after ESPN published a report suggesting he could face a suspension for involvement with the Biogenesis clinic. He addressed the media after the game, saying a lot without actually saying much, and now he’s out of the Brewers’ lineup for today’s game. Of course, Braun has…

  2. Ryan Braun: “The truth has not changed”

    Immediately after last night’s Brewers extra-inning victory Ryan Braun was asked to address the ESPN report suggesting he could be facing a suspension for involvement with the Biogenesis clinic. Here’s what Braun told the media assembled around his locker, via Adam McCalvy of MLB.com: A lot of people here. I assume I know why everybody…

  3. Get ready for the resurrection of Anthony Bosch’s character

    Jun 5, 2013, 8:20 AM EDT

    Anthony Bosch

    When the Biogenesis story hit back in January, one of the primary narratives that emerged from it among the baseball commentariat was that A-Rod, Ryan Braun and others were awful for, among many other reasons, getting in bed with a shady weasel like Anthony Bosch of Biogenesis. And words were not spared on just how…

  4. When it comes to drugs, Major League Baseball has learned nothing from the past, wishes to learn nothing in the future

    Jun 4, 2013, 11:04 PM EDT

    MLB Commissioner Bud Selig speaks during a news conference in New York

    I don’t know what Ryan Braun or Alex Rodriguez or Nelson Cruz or any of the other players thus far implicated in the Biogenesis mess has done. I don’t know what they’ve taken. I don’t know what they’ve said beyond their curt, lawyerly public statements. I don’t know if they’ve lied. But I know this…

  5. Looking at the potentially suspended Biogenesis players

    Jun 4, 2013, 9:50 PM EDT

    Jhonny Peralta, Jim Leyland, Tony Randazzo

    Let’s run down the list of players connected to Tony Bosch’s Biogenesis clinic as MLB is reportedly preparing to issue 50- or 100-game suspensions. Listed below are players whose names are found in the Biogenesis documents. Other major leaguers may well be involved, as some of Bosch’s clients were listed in code. Since Bosch is…

  6. A mass Biogenesis suspension would be a massive fail

    Jun 4, 2013, 8:47 PM EDT

    Bud Selig

    MLB will let Tony Bosch off the hook, if he just gives them A-Rod and Braun. That’s the crux of Tuesday’s Outside the Lines article. Tony Bosch, the fake doctor who ran the Biogenesis Clinic exposed by the Miami New Times earlier this year, merely has to tell MLB everything that went on at his…

  7. Report: Alex Rodriguez, Ryan Braun among players MLB seeks to suspend for Biogensis connection

    Jun 4, 2013, 7:53 PM EDT

    braun tall getty

    Performance-enhancing drugs loomed large entering the baseball season, amid reports that dozens of players — many of them high-profile stars — could be suspended because of their reported involvement with a clinic that supplied PEDs. That story just got bigger. From ESPN.com investigative reporters T.J. Quinn, Pedro Gomez and Mike Fish: Major League Baseball will…

  9. Ryan Braun is back in Brewers lineup despite thumb injury

    May 28, 2013, 4:16 PM EDT

    ryan braun getty

    Ryan Braun was out of the Brewers’ lineup yesterday because the discomfort from the thumb injury he’s had for two weeks was finally too much, but he felt good enough to pinch-hit in the ninth inning and is back in the lineup tonight. Braun lined out as a pinch-hitter yesterday, but hit well overall during…

  10. Bust no more: Carlos Gomez has been one of the best players in baseball

    May 28, 2013, 11:19 AM EDT

    Carlos Gomez

    Carlos Gomez continued his breakout season yesterday by smacking two homers against the Twins, who acquired him from the Mets as a prospect in the Johan Santana deal and traded him to the Brewers for J.J. Hardy two disappointing seasons later. Gomez was a bust in Minnesota, hitting .248 with a .645 OPS in 290…

  11. Ryan Braun decides he can’t keep playing through lingering thumb injury

    May 27, 2013, 2:35 PM EDT

    ryan braun getty

    Ryan Braun is out of the Brewers’ lineup for today’s game against the Twins and may end up missing multiple games because of a thumb injury. Braun told Adam McCalvy of MLB.com that he initially hurt his right thumb two weeks ago and has “basically been swinging with one hand for two weeks.” And it’s…

  12. The NL All-Star starting lineup will outshine the AL’s

    May 22, 2013, 11:42 PM EDT

    Justin Upton

    OK, so there hasn’t been any actual All-Star ballot results released yet. That doesn’t mean I can’t do my fun little exercise here. What follows is my best guess at the All-Star Game starting lineups. National League CF Andrew McCutchen 2B Brandon Phillips 1B Joey Votto LF Justin Upton RF Bryce Harper 3B David Wright…

  13. Anthony Bosch says Biogenesis allegations are “character assassination”

    Apr 30, 2013, 10:00 AM EDT

    ryan braun getty

    Anthony Bosch, the Miami man at the center of an ongoing PED scandal involving his clinic, Biogenesis, Alex Rodriguez, Ryan Braun and dozens of other players, says it’s all lies.  He spoke to ESPN’s Pedro Gomez: [Bosch] says he knows nothing about performance-enhancing drugs and that media accounts of his alleged PED distribution are inaccurate…

  14. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 23, 2013, 6:46 AM EDT

    Oakland Athletics v Boston Red Sox

    Red Sox 9, Athletics 6: Just yesterday Mike Napoli was named player of the week for last week. He’s making a bid for a repeat now, hitting a grand slam and driving in five runs here. Overall he has 25 RBI in 19 games. Orioles 2, Blue Jays 1: Chris Tillman had a one hitter…

  15. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 22, 2013, 6:22 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Angels 4, Tigers 3: Watched most of this one as I painted a couple of rooms in my house. Two highlights of the game for me were (1) overhearing my girlfriend use some really bad language the second or third time the Tigers left the bases loaded; and (2) Tigers color commentator Rod Allen, when describing…

  16. Jean Segura was involved in one of the weirdest baserunning plays you’ll ever see

    Apr 20, 2013, 10:10 AM EDT

    Jean Segura Getty

    Don’t ever let anyone tell you that you can’t steal first base. Brewers’ shortstop Jean Segura did it last night against the Cubs. Hang with me for a second. It all started after Segura reached on an infield single to begin the bottom of the eighth inning. After he successfully stole second base, Ryan Braun…

  17. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 15, 2013, 5:55 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Oakland Athletics

    Tigers 10, Athletics 1: Austin Jackson was 4 for 6 with three RBI. Prince Fielder is now hitting .429/.527/.833. Once this team gets its bullpen figured out, man, watch out. Diamondbacks 1, Dodgers 0: When Nick Swisher hit a walkoff homer single in a 1-0 game the other day I thought to myself, “man, you don’t…

  18. Brewers finally end ridiculous scoring drought

    Apr 14, 2013, 10:35 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Brewers v St. Louis Cardinals

    Ryan Braun‘s two-run home run in the eighth inning of today’s series finale in St. Louis sparked a late-game comeback and ended a team record 32-inning scoreless inning streak. The home run brought the score to 3-2. In the ninth, Yuniesky Betancourt‘s RBI double tied the game, and Jonathan Lucroy‘s solo home run in the…

  19. Report: MLB, player buying up Biogenesis documents

    Apr 12, 2013, 1:17 AM EDT

    Bud Selig defiant

    The New York Times is reporting that MLB, rebuffed in its attempts to get Biogenesis documents from the Miami New Times, is now paying an ex-Biogenesis employee for documents relating to the case. Which is interesting enough. Making it even more fascinating: according to the report, the league has taken this step after learning that…

  20. Ryan Braun is back in the Brewers’ lineup

    Apr 8, 2013, 1:48 PM EDT

    ryan braun getty

    After sitting out three games with a neck injury Ryan Braun is in the Brewers’ lineup today, batting third and playing left field. In the 11th inning of yesterday’s loss to the Diamondbacks it looked like Braun would pinch-hit with two outs, but then manager Ron Roenicke called him back sent up pitcher and career…

  21. HBT Weekend Wrap

    Apr 8, 2013, 8:24 AM EDT

    Wrap

    There’s a lot that goes on during the weekend of a baseball season. And a lot of you, for reasons that must make some sort of sense, but like, whatever, choose to only read HBT during the week while you’re at work. I guess that’s OK. I’m sure your family is nice. But you really…

  22. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 8, 2013, 6:09 AM EDT

    Country Breakfast

    Royals 9, Phillies 8: Country. Breakfast. Billy Butler drives in seven via a grand slam and a three-run double. The loss is an especially disheartening one for Philly, as they were staked to a 4-0 lead early with their ace on the hill. Cole Hamels was rocked, though, and now stands at 0-2 with a 10.97 ERA…

  23. The Brewers are one awful baseball team right now

    Apr 7, 2013, 6:54 PM EDT

    Kyle Lohse

    First of all, the Brewers are carrying 13 pitches, even though Ryan Braun can’t play because of a neck injury. That leaves them with a three-man bench that just doesn’t work in National League games. Second of all, the Brewers are carrying 13 pitchers. Why on earth is John Axford pitching a second inning in…

  24. Ryan Braun (neck) out of lineup for third straight game

    Apr 7, 2013, 12:42 PM EDT

    Here’s a shot of the lineup card for Sunday afternoon’s series finale between the Diamondbacks and Brewers, provided by Brewers senior director of media relations Mike Vassallo: You’ll notice that Ryan Braun is absent. He hasn’t appeared in a game in this series because of neck spasms. It’s not a long-term concern, but Braun was…
