JNS.orgMilwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun, the former Most Valuable Player of Major League Baseball’s National League, was suspended for the rest of the 2013 season by the league on Monday for “violations of the Basic Agreement and its Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.” Braun’s father is Jewish and his mother is Catholic.

Braun’s suspension comes amid the league’s investigation of players allegedly tied to the Biogenesis laboratory. While Braun will not appeal the suspension, he has not addressed allegations about Biogenesis.

“As I have acknowledged in the past, I am not perfect,” Braun said in a statement released by Major League Baseball. “I realize now that I have made some mistakes. I am willing to accept the consequences of those actions.”

Braun is a .312 career hitter, with 211 homeruns in seven seasons. In 2011, when he won the Most Valuable Player award, he batted .332 with 33 homeruns, 111 RBI, and 33 stolen bases.

    Braun is just another confirmed druggie with a lot of money to buy drugs.. Having him in ANY game is an insult to every kid in the country, especially when we hold up these so-called ‘ATHELTES” AS MODELS FOR OUR YOUTH.

    FOOEY. ERASE THIS GUY’S NAME FROM THE TEAM. He ain’t NOBODY’S model!

    And let’s not back down when he offers a flim-flam excuse! A bum is a BUM.

    YOU WANT SOMEONE LIKE THIS FOR YOUR KID’S HERO? hell, NO!!
