    Ryan Braun calls Brewers fans to personally apologize

    http://deadspin.com/report-ryan-brau...-ti-1260727737

    The cynical side of me wants to BS all over this, but this is one of the better possible things he could've done at any rate.
    They don't think it be like it is, but it do.

    He had his feet to the fire, and had to do something to improve his image, fast.

    Doesn't impress me at all.

    Same here.

    Plus he has plenty of time on his hands.

    He must enjoy talking on the phone. Afterall he called Votto and the other players when he slandering that guy that did the tests, calling must come naturally to him.

    Why doesn't he fund refunds to those season ticket holders to back up his words.
    Can't win with 'em

    Here's my number, call me suspended?


    I would say he's the biggest loser in all of baseball but in a game that features A-Roid, Molina & Chris Carpenter, he's got some pretty stiff competition. Definitely top-4, though.

    Ryan Braun is baseball's Anthony Weiner.

    I dislike the Cards as much as the next poster here but I can't put Molina in a group w/ A-Rod and Braun. (I don't consider Carp a real baseball player). Those two clowns are an embarrassment and deserve zero respect.

    Disclaimer: Former catcher here so I have a man-crush on most MLB backstops.

    If Braun played for the Marlins he could have called all of the fans.
