Hes worse than a cheater. He knew he was guilty but tried to destroy a mans life by implying he messed with the sample because he was anti-semitic.

Brewers will likely give him a nice send off but agree with those here that he disgraced himself with those false accusations.

I remember feeling sorry for Braun after he lost the batting title to Reyes in 2011 when he played and went 0-4 while Reyes bunted and sat his way to the top

He made the announcement from his house. if the Brewers were interested wouldn't they have signed him to a one day contract and had him announce at a press conference?

On August 22, 2013, Braun released a statement in which he apologized for using PEDs] He claimed to have used PEDs during the later part of the 2011 season to help him recover from a nagging injury. Braun said that using PEDs was "'a huge mistake'", adding that he had "'compounded the situation by not admitting my mistakes immediately'". Braun also apologized to Laurenzi, stating that he "'deeply regretted'" the comments he had made about him.

Good for him but apologies don't erase what he did.

As long as someone deeply regrets attacking your character and leaving a stain on your name I guess that makes everything okay.

Apologizing after you are caught lying, cheating and slandering someone when your goal is to continue playing baseball for big money simply makes him a hypocrite as well.

As Adam likes to observe

He also stole Matt Kemp's MVP Award.

It'd be nice if the Brewers won the WS a year after he was done playing and a month or so after he retired.

Like to not see him get a ring and be so close just like Bryce Harper.
