Players feel 'betrayed' by Ryan Braun as more MLB PED bans loom

24 July 2013 16:58:01 Sport news, comment and results | theguardian.com

• Major-league players lament behaviour of Brewers slugger • Yankees' Rodriguez reported to be in line for harsh penalty • David Lengel on Ryan Braun's 65-game suspension After Ryan Braun of the Milwaukee Brewers was handed a 65-game suspension on Monday, some Major League Baseball players were vocal about their disappointment in his actions. Braun accepted his season-ending suspension rather than fight MLB over evidence he used performance-enhancing drugs . Asked about players who use performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs), the Los Angeles Angels pitcher CJ Wilson said: "They're lying to the fans. They're lying to their team-mates. They're lying to their GMs, their owners, and they're going to get caught." Skip Schumaker of the Los Angeles Dodgers said Braun, the 2011 National League MVP, had let him down. "Watching him talk right now makes me sick," Schumaker said. "I have an autographed Braun jersey in my baseball room that I'll be taking down. I don't want my son identifying what I've worked so hard to get to and work so hard to have I don't want him comparing Braun to me." Another Dodger, Matt Kemp, who finished second to Braun in the 2011 MVP vote, said the Milwaukee slugger should be stripped of the honor. "We had conversations, and I considered him a friend," Kemp said. "I don't think anybody likes to be lied to, and I feel like a lot of people have felt betrayed." Braun tested positive for elevated testosterone in October 2011, but successfully overturned a 50-game penalty when an arbitrator ruled the outfielder's urine sample was handled improperly. Braun loudly proclaimed his innocence then. "This whole thing has been despicable on his part," said the Detroit Tigers pitcher Max Scherzer. "When he did get caught, he never came clean. He tried to question the ability of the collector when he was caught red-handed. So that's why the whole Braun situation, there is so much player outrage toward him." The Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Brad Ziegler remembered the 2011 NL divisional series, when the Brewers beat the Diamondbacks 3-2 in a best-of-five playoff as Braun went 9 for 18 with a home run and four RBIs. "It affected the series, because that's right when the positive test occurred. That's when it was highest in his system, and he torched us that series," Ziegler said. "We can't put it all on that. Looking back on it, we walked away from that series knowing we should have won it before we heard he tested positive. At least he didn't get away with it now." The New York Yankees manager, Joe Girardi, said Braun was guilty. "You don't accept a deal unless you're guilty," he said. "It's another black eye for our game. I know this game is very resilient, and there's been a lot of scandals over the years, but you get tired of it." Girardi, however, may soon face his own problem with a star slugger. More than a dozen players have been targeted by MLB in its probe of the closed anti-aging clinic Biogenesis of America, including the Yankees' three-time American League MVP, Alex Rodriguez. The next step will be for MLB to inform the union of additional players it intends to penalize, which could happen as early as a meeting on Thursday, a person familiar with the investigation said, speaking on condition of anonymity because no statements were authorized. The Yankees expect that Rodriguez could face a much harsher penalty than the one Braun agreed to, a second person familiar with the case said, also speaking on condition of anonymity because no statements were authorized. The Yankees anticipate Rodriguez could be accused of using PEDs over multiple seasons, of recruiting other athletes for the clinic, of attempting to obstruct MLB's investigation, and of not being truthful with MLB in the past when he discussed his relationship with Dr Anthony Galea, who pleaded guilty two years ago to a US federal charge of bringing unapproved drugs from Canada into the United States. A chain of 300 convenience stores in Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa has cut ties with Braun. Gary Gonczy, director of marketing and advertising for Kwik Trip, said in an email on Tuesday that the company will no longer use Braun as a spokesman. Despite Braun's ban, Kemp has no shot at claiming the MVP trophy. The Baseball Writers' Association of America has said repeatedly that it will not revisit any of its award votes. "The decision was already made. He won it," said Jack O'Connell, the BBWAA's secretary-treasurer. The MLB commissioner, Bud Selig, said in March he wants even stiffer drug penalties, and union head Michael Weiner said players will consider toughened rules for 2014. Travis Tygart, the chief executive of the US Anti-Doping Agency, said on Tuesday: "It's a new generation of athletes that are standing up. The culture's been flipped on its head." Some players, however, are not satisfied with the penalty handed to Braun, which is 15 games longer than the current standard for a first offense. Max Scherzer said it was insufficient. "The Brewers are unlikely to make the playoffs. He misses 2013, and they are set for 2014," he said. "For someone that cheated the game as badly as he did, it just doesn't seem right." On the field on Tuesday, the St Louis Cardinals maintained their lead in the National League standings with a 4-1 win over the Philadelphia Phillies , with Shelby Miller's six scoreless innings guiding the hosts to victory. Elsewhere, the Boston Red Sox stayed atop the American League standings by beating its nearest rival, the Tampa Bay Rays , while the Yankees staged a ninth-inning rally to edge the Texas Rangers . The Baltimore Orioles slipped back in the tight AL East contest by losing at the Kansas City Royals , the San Francisco Giants earned a split of a double-header against the Cincinnati Reds , and the fill-in starter Carlos Torres impressed as the New York Mets beat the Atlanta Braves . Gerrit Cole pitched seven strong innings to end a personal three-game losing skid and added an RBI single to lead the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 5-1 win over the Washington Nationals . Kyle Seager had three hits as the Seattle Mariners won their eighth-straight game by edging the Cleveland Indians 4-3. Adrian Gonzalez hit a three-run homer to power the Dodgers to a 10-9 win over the Toronto Blue Jays , and a fifth-straight victory. Arizona's AJ Pollock doubled, tripled and drove in three runs to help the Diamondbacks to a 10-4 win over the Chicago Cubs . Detroit's Rick Porcello pitched seven scoreless innings to guide the Tigers past the Chicago White Sox 6-2. Jonathan Villar scored the winning run from second base in the ninth inning on a throwing error by the catcher Derek Norris, giving the Houston Astros a 5-4 comeback win over the Oakland Athletics .
