Mixed Emotions

Ryan Braun has retired.

To say that I have mixed feelings about this is an understatement; he lied. He used PEDs. His best performances were when he was on performance enhancing substances. Yes, he was a part of a Brewers team that tried to make history, tried to get to the World Series, but he was cheating. Even worse? Once he was off the stuff, he was never the same. It was blatantly obvious.

He’ll more than likely have a spot on the Brewers Wall of Honor. I’m fine with that. But I don’t want to see him being inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. He doesn’t deserve it.

To be quite honest, he should have retired years ago. Maybe then we wouldn’t have to struggle with the legacy he’s leaving behind.

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
