Ryan Bruan’s 65-game suspension, which ends his season this year, is a move by Major League Baseball that needed to happen. After Braun got away on a technicality over his last suspension, this was something the league did to make an example of Braun and all other players that want to try to cheat the game.
I think that Braun knew he was wrong the first time, but was lucky to escape. Now with this, Braun had to know that he couldn’t fight it anymore and just take the offer the league gave him. At least to me, it shows that MLB will not relent until they get what they know needed to be done.
Since there had been talks about Alex Rodriguez also, I expect some kind of punishment for him real soon. Especially for a repeat offender (although he never got caught while in Texas), MLB knows that they have to make an example of him. I don’t know if they will be light on the suspension.
