You know the drill by now. Pull up your favorite image of Ryan Braun looking sullen, dig into the text editor window and tell the world what you think about Ryan Braun. HOT TAKES, COMING YER WAY. If you prefer a bolder approach in instructing others what they think or perhaps you like finding new ground expressing your by vehement non-outrage.
They came in waves. First, immediately after the news broke, come the “here is my take” pieces. Then the “here is what the players think” piece are intermingled with the “I’M SO DAMN ANGRY” pieces, which are little more than accredited journalists calling Ryan Braun mean names for 800 words.
Somebody, somewhere, has something insightful to say about Ryan Braun’s 65 game suspension for his involvement with the Biogenesis clinc (predictably, Grant Brisbee is the leader in the clubhouse). Braun didn’t “actually” fail an untainted drug test but the league and its investigators found more than a little bit of evidence suggesting Braun did more than use Anthony Bosch as a consultant, as the Brewers slugger previously stated.
Just a few days later, there isn’t much left of the Braun story. Some are attempting to free the Brewers from his contract but much of the Biogenesis talk is already onto Alex Rodriguez and what he eventually gets (lifetime ban?), rather than attempting to make real sense of what happened with Braun. What Ryan Braun actually means.
