Ryan Braun Suspended for Remainder of Season

“As I have acknowledged in the past, I am not perfect. I realize now that I have made some mistakes. I am willing to accept the consequences of those actions. This situation has taken a toll on me and my entire family, and it is has been a distraction to my teammates and the Brewers organization. I am very grateful for the support I have received from players, ownership and the fans in Milwaukee and around the country. Finally, I wish to apologize to anyone I may have disappointed – all of the baseball fans especially those in Milwaukee, the great Brewers organization, and my teammates. I am glad to have this matter behind me once and for all, and I cannot wait to get back to the game I love.”


The 65-game suspension is not said to have any basis in Braun's failed 2011 drug test, which he successfully overturned (for the first time in baseball history). Braun will not appeal this new charge.

Now…. A-Rod's turn.
