If you were still wondering just how despicable Ryan Braun’s actions were in the wake of his positive test for elevated levels of testosterone late in the 2011 baseball season, I think we may have finally hit rock bottom. According to a new report from ESPN’s Bust Olney, while mounting a campaign for support of his appeal against a suspension in early 2012, Braun claimed the man who handled his positive test – Dino Laurenzi, Jr. – was anti-Semetic. Braun, who is Jewish, also said that Laurenzi was a Chicago Cubs fan, implying that he would have an incentive in seeing Braun suspended. Braun successfully appeal the 50-game suspension in 2012 due to questions about how Laurenzi had handled the test, but never actually disputed the fact that he had tested positive. Braun was suspended by Major League Baseball for the remainder of the 2013 season on July 22 due to his connection to the Biogenesis clinic in Miami. Braun reportedly called fellow major leaguers to rally support for his caus...

FOR ME, IT'S PERSONAL
Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson ripped Ryan Braun, who killed Arizona in the 2011 NLDS, for lying about using performance-enhancing drug use.
As Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun tried to rally support
among his major league peers while fighting a possible suspension
for a performance-enhancing drug in 2012, he told others the man
who collected his urine sample had motivation to see him suspended,
according to reports.
Teammates, friends and fans all felt betrayed by Ryan Braun’s role in the Biogenesis scandal that saw him accept a 65-game suspension on July 22. Braun vehemently denied using performing-enhancing drugs in the past, and now an apology and admission of guilt by the outfielder won’t erase the damage he did for at least one man in Major League Baseball.

#1: I’ll have a Double Whopper with cheese, extra mayo; extra-large fries….and a DIET coke. Now that’s some good ole’ American reasoning there; the diet Coke makes those 2000 calories okay, right? Wrong! In another failure of irrationality, most people have turned a deaf ear to the Brewers’ outfield since the loss of Ryan Braun. [...]
The Little League World Series is now on TV, and besides watching the game, the part that interests me the most is the children telling us who their favorite baseball player is before every game. My favorite player when I was in Little League was Mark Grace. His great fielding skills (he won four Gold Gloves), reliability at the plate and even his batting stance influenced how I...
