They announced today via Twitter that Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun would be suspended for the remainder of the 2013 season.
Based on a statement from Braun himself, it looks like he won't be appealing it, either.
Here are the tweets from MLB:
BREAKING: Ryan Braun suspended without pay for remainder of 2013 season for violations of Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.— MLB (@MLB) July 22, 2013
"I realize now that I have made some mistakes. I am willing to accept the consequences of those actions." - Ryan Braun.— MLB (@MLB) July 22, 2013
"I wish to apologize to ... all of the baseball fans especially those in Milwaukee, the great Brewers organization, and my teammates."-Braun— MLB (@MLB) July 22, 2013
Do you think this was the right move by Major League Baseball, as well as Braun? It looks like he's just going to take his lumps and sit out the rest of the year, in what appears to be some sort of plea deal with the league, since there's not really a precedent for a 65-game suspension.
Does this change your opinion of Braun?
