He won't contest the suspension, which says to me the evidence was copious and strong. I also suspect his suspension will seem light compared to what's to come in the next few days...

Yeah, apparently this is the result of a plea agreement he made with MLB. Which makes it pretty obvious that he is admitting guilt, although I doubt you will ever actually hear him specifically say that he is guilty.

He cheated, he got caught, he suffers the consequences. That's all there is to it.

I really hate to loose him from the roster of my highest money team but I am sooooo happy that this happened. I hope Arod and all the rest are coming soon. Good job Bud. Finally....... ;-D

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

The best is his response,

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.


Good for Bud for kicking this bum out.

All Braun will ever be now is a dirty little brown stain on the game of baseball.
