I thought the “Steroid Era” was over and that major league baseball players had learned their lessons?
Apparently not as the first domino–in what is likely to be a long sequence of players–has fallen and there will likely be many more to come.
Up to the plate first, buy former MVP Ryan Braun of the Brewers. Who’s on deck?
Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun has been suspended without pay for the rest of the season, a 65-game ban announced Monday by Major League Baseball in what appears to be the first salvo in the league’s fight against players allegedly tied to the Biogenesis lab. The announcement from commissioner Bud Selig said the suspension was for violations of the basic agreement and its joint drug prevention and treatment program and is effective immediately. “As I have acknowledged in the past, I am not perfect,” Braun said in a statement released by MLB that did not specifically mention Biogenesis. “I realize now that I have made some mistakes. I am willing to accept the consequences of those actions.”
