Ryan Braun, one of only a handful of Jewish baseball stars along with the likes of Sandy Koufax and Hall of Famer Rod Carew (he converted), had been one the sports heroes of the chosen people. But it appears that’s no longer the case.
What makes his non-admission admission particularly lame and weasely is how lame and weasely his response was to his failed drug test back in 2011. First he (successfully) challenged his suspension on technical grounds and then turned that victory-by-technicality into an unabashed declaration of innocence.
Just man up already and admit what you did. Until then, you’re not even in the same league as Shawn Green and Ian Kinsler. And no more calling you “The Hebrew Hammer” either.
Braun may be one of the worst people on Earth. But he probably still has one supporter– his agent, Nez Belalo, who gets a cut of that $105 million.
