Ryan Braun

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

    Apr 30, 2013, 10:00 AM EDT

    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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

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

    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…

    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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

    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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

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

    Apr 7, 2013, 12:42 PM EDT

    braun getty

    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…

  13. Aramis Ramirez to undergo MRI on sprained left knee

    UPDATE: Adam McCalvy reports that Ramirez is scheduled to undergo an MRI on his knee tomorrow. It sounds like he could be dealing with an extended absence. 9:46 PM: According to Adam McCalvy of MLB.com, Ramirez has a sprained left knee. As mentioned below, he dealt with the same issue during spring training, so this…

  14. Ryan Braun scratched from lineup with neck spasms

    Apr 5, 2013, 8:08 PM EDT

    Ryan Braun

    According to Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Ryan Braun was scratched from tonight’s lineup against the Diamondbacks due to neck spasms. Braun began feeling the discomfort in his neck during batting practice. It’s not clear if he’ll be available to pinch hit. Khris Davis will start in his place in left field and make…

    Texas Rangers pitcher Darvish reacts after a hit by Houston Astros' Gonzalez goes through his legs in their MLB American League baseball game in Houston

    Rangers 7, Astros 0: Part of me feels like if the Rangers didn’t score all those runs in the eighth and ninth innings that Darvish would have been fresher and finished this thing off. Part of me feels like if he wasn’t facing the Astros that it would have been over in the sixth. But…

  16. Curt Schilling and Alex Cora pick Ryan Howard for NL MVP

    Mar 29, 2013, 9:05 PM EDT

    Ryan Howard

    I’m not lying. Thankfully, the rest made reasonable picks in Joey Votto (17 votes), Buster Posey and Bryce Harper (six), Ryan Braun and Justin Upton (three), Andrew McCutchen (two), and Matt Kemp, Jason Heyward and Giancarlo Stanton (one). Ryan Howard is 33 years old and is still visibly limping from an Achilles injury that caused…

  18. Ryan Braun has caused MLB to switch to glass pee containers in drug testing

    Mar 25, 2013, 8:23 AM EDT

    ryan braun getty

    One may worry about the impact of all of the drug allegations to the legacy of Ryan Braun, but in one respect his legacy is secure: he’s the guy who killed plastic pee containers in MLB drug testing. Andy Martino reports: According to two major league sources, MLB quietly switched from plastic to glass containers…

  19. Why doesn’t Major League Baseball just suspend Ryan Braun and see what happens?

    Mar 22, 2013, 12:07 PM EDT

    ryan braun getty

    Here’s a deep thought: if Major League Baseball is certain enough that its players took PEDs supplied to them by Biogenesis that they’re willing to file a lawsuit to that effect, why are they not certain enough to simply suspend Ryan Braun, Alex Rodriguez and all of the other players named? Seriously. You can’t file…

  20. Major League Baseball’s lawsuit against Biogenesis should be laughed out of court

    Mar 22, 2013, 7:44 AM EDT

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

    And should probably cause the lawyers who file it to be slapped with sanctions, but I’ll get to that in a minute. In case you missed it, the backstory here is that Major League Baseball plans to sue Biogenesis today in an effort to obtain the documents it has thus far been unable to obtain…

  21. Report: MLB plans to file lawsuit against Anthony Bosch and others connected to Biogenesis

    Mar 22, 2013, 12:25 AM EDT

    AP Anthony Bosch

    With MLB increasingly desperate to get their hands on any evidence to discipline players connected to the Biogenesis clinic, they have come up with an interesting new strategy. According to Michael S. Schmidt of the New York Times, MLB plans to file a lawsuit on Friday against multiple people connected to Biogenesis, including the clinic’s…

  22. MLB denies that it’s specifically targeting Braun, but the denial rings hollow

    Mar 21, 2013, 7:05 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Brewers v St Louis Cardinals - Game Five

    Yesterday Bob Nightengale reported that Major League Baseball was targeting Ryan Braun in the Biogenesis investigation, to the point where it was willing to grant other players immunity — and sacrifice most of its drug enforcement principles — in order to take Braun down. Later in the day, however, MLB’s Rob Manfred denied that. From…

  23. In focusing on Braun, Major League Baseball is abandoning the principles of its drug testing/enforcement program

    Mar 20, 2013, 12:00 PM EDT

    ryan braun wide getty

    Been doing some more thinking about the story this morning about how Major League Baseball is laser-focused on Ryan Braun in the Biogenesis investigation, to the point where it is considering giving players immunity in an effort to nab him and some of the bigger fish. As a basic premise, I don’t have a real…

  24. Ryan Braun is “MLB’s Public Enemy No.1″

    Mar 20, 2013, 8:47 AM EDT

    Ryan Braun AP

    Bob Nightengale reports in USA Today about Major League Baseball’s efforts to investigate players named in the Biogenesis documents. Of somewhat surprising note: Nightengale says some 90 players appear in the records. Of less surprising note: it’s the big fish that MLB is clearly focusing on: Alex Rodriguez and, even more so, Ryan Braun: There…
