I thought you might find this interesting. According to CBS 58, suspended Milwaukee Brewers Outfielder Ryan Braun is calling Brewers season ticket holders to apologize. “Hey there’s a guy on the phone claiming to be Ryan Braun, it’s probably one of your buddies messing with you.” That’s exactly what Kelly’s Bleachers owner Pat Guenther thought Thursday afternoon. He picked up the phone thinking it’d be a joke. “Hey Pat this is Ryan Braun,” Guenther recalls. […]
With the revelations of the Biogenesis investigation by MLB coming to the forefront this week, just about every sportswriter has put in his or her two cents regarding this story and how performance enhancing drugs plays into professional sports in general. Even broadcasters are getting into the mix now. The other night during the Mets/Rockies game, Gary Cohen and Keith Hernandez touched on the issue in a way that really hasn’t been by most sportswriters. […]
While everybody in the sports world is focused on Alex Rodriguez today, the Mets universe just imploded with news that not one but TWO New York Mets will be suspended by MLB for 50 games. Look, we all knew that Cesar Puello was involved. It was just a matter of time, and I still contend to this day that since the Mets knew that he was involved they didn’t feel rushed to promote Puello. With […]
Kudos to Milwaukee owner Mark Attanasio for his immediate gesture to Brewers fans in the wake of the 65-game suspension of Ryan Braun. But, will it end there? Could the Brewers want to clean up their mess by trading Braun? And if so, could the Mets be a fit? Yes, Braun got off on a technicality the first time and Major League Baseball has had it in for him since. It was only a matter […]
Steroids, and all PED’s have become such a staple in sports that now headlines are made less on accomplishments but more on accusations. Jeff Pearlman, who I will preface by saying is very open in terms of his communication and is never one to shy away from his opinion, wrote a piece recently about his trip to Citi Field. In his blog, Pearlman writes the following: “Here’s the thing: Why isn’t anyone questioning Byrd’s season? […]
Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp, who finished runner-up to Ryan Braun in voting for the 2011 National League Most Valuable Player award, thinks the suspended Milwaukee Brewers slugger should be stripped of the honor. Braun finished with 388 points and 20 first-place votes, to 332 and 10 for Kemp. Major League Baseball attempted to suspend Braun following a positive test that October for elevated testosterone, but the penalty was overturned by an arbitrator who […]
When Lance Armstrong came forward with his admission, it came off as mostly disingenuous and was received with little sympathy. For years, Armstrong lied, denied and attacked anyone who stood in his way. He ruined people’s lives, filed lawsuits and did anything necessary in order to preserve himself with no regard for the damage left behind in order to so. Ryan Braun is no better. When the then-reigning NL MVP tested positive for performance enhancing […]
CHEATER, LIAR, SUSPENDED, JUSTICE! Updated By Clayton Collier: The 65-game ban of Ryan Braun was negotiated by him, MLBPA and MLB. Major League Baseball was looking for a suspension beyond 2013, says ESPN’s T.J. Quinn, however Braun was able to get it reduced to the remainder of the current season. Sources tell OTL MLB confronted Braun with volumes of evidence provided by Tony Bosch, including texts. — T.J. Quinn (@TJQuinnESPN) July 22, 2013 If plan […]
With the potential for suspensions to be brought down on superstars like Alex Rodriguez, and Ryan Braun as well as several other prominent players, I am reminded of the double standard that exists in today’s world when it comes to sports. The steroid era changed everything. When it all began to unravel, the media lead the public down a path of deciding that these crimes against the sport should leave fans outraged and make us […]
