Arizona Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson is angry about performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs) and he wants to question one of the two League MVPs recently suspended (or facing suspension) as a fallout of the Biogenesis clinic scandal.  The 1988 National League MVP Gibson has some questions for the 2011 NL MVP, Ryan Braun.  According to Nick Piecoro of the AZCentral.com, Gibson sounded off: I told [my wife] that if I get a chance to see Braun, I got a question for him, right to his face. Is he about rehearsed by now? About ready to come out? He’s probably been practicing at theater school somewhere. Anyway, she was looking at how things like that can influence people’s opportunities and the opportunity to do something like that.” Gibson, always known for his tough approach to the game (reflected in his current over-achieving Diamondbacks team), went on to emphasize his frustration: “I’m not surprised he hasn’t addressed people. He probably doesn’t give a (expletive) about me. He’s got it really good. I was one of the guys who went through many things – work stoppages, etc. – so that he could do that. I would hope that he respects me and everybody who stood up for him before he played the game. Everybody looks at it differently, but if he thinks he’s giving back to the game, he has a different idea of how to give back than I do.” Gibson takes issue with Ryan Braun’s “story”Credit cdn1.sbnation.com Gibson won the 2011 Manager of the Year, his team was eliminated by the allegedly juiced up Braun and his Milwaukee Brewers, so you can understand how this hits a nerve. “Everybody listened to his line of (expletive), so you take him at face value,” Gibson said, referring to Braun’s press conference in spring training of 2012. “All things considered, we should have won the game. All things considered, the last game, we tied it up and we had a chance to win it. There were other times in my career when I did overcome cheaters. We had our chance.” Word has come out that Braun plans to come clean on his transgressions, perhaps early next week.  A major question asked by fans and media these days are how to those who cheated make right those they took from.  Be it playing time, salary, ticket prices, game victories, records, you-name-it.  I don’t think we’re anywhere near answering that question. - David Whitlock Be sure to like our Facebook Page Or follow us on Twitter - David Whitlock Follow @lhd_on_sports - Blog Follow @RBTS_baseball - Sports-Kings Follow @realsportskings The post Kirk Gibson says he “got a question” for Ryan Braun, but won’t share appeared first on Reading Between The Seams.

  • I respect more than anyone else someone who speaks their mind like Kirk Gibson did. And he clearly would say it to Braun's face. Lots of people will say things in print, say it on twitter, even an email or a letter, but not to your face. I have not use for gutless ***** like that. I love seeing him go off like this. The next thing I want to see is a hitter who knows how to fight rush the mound when he is hit by a pitch intentionally and knock the pitcher out cold, break his jaw, before anyone else can get there.
