ST. LOUIS - A day later, the topic remained delicate. Numerous Phillies players did not want to comment on Ryan Braun's historic 65-game suspension that sent shock waves through baseball. Some deferred to the strong statements made by players on other teams. "I don't need to talk about that," manager Charlie Manuel said, before talking at length about it. "I want the game clean and fair," Manuel said. "I look at baseball as something I love. The game, I totally respect it. It's been totally tremendous to me. And I want it played right.

With last week's suspension of Milwaukee Brewers star Ryan Braun for taking performance-enhancing drugs, talking heads are again falling over themselves to deplore the example Major League Baseball is setting for American society. But they have it twisted. Baseball's inability to escape the so-called Steroid Era, which Commissioner Bud Selig declared dead three years ago, is due to what's going on outside sports. If you're not taking a performance enhancer of some sort, you're being urged to. That reality was especially apparent during the Mike & Mike sports-talk show on ESPN radio and television Tuesday.

ST. LOUIS - Had Domonic Brown known he would miss at least two games when informing a team athletic trainer of concussion-like symptoms, he may have hidden his dizziness Tuesday night. His head had slammed into the warning-track dirt in left field when he unsuccessfully dove for a fly ball. "I feel good," Brown said a day later. "I feel like I'm back to normal, honestly. " But the Phillies outfielder cannot play until Friday at the earliest. Major League Baseball's protocol calls for extensive concussion testing before a player can be approved for action.

NEW YORK - National League MVP Ryan Braun's 50-game suspension was overturned Thursday by baseball arbitrator Shyam Das, the first time a baseball player successfully challenged a drug-related penalty in a grievance. The decision was announced by the Major League Baseball Players Association on Thursday, one day before the 28-year-old outfielder was due to report to spring training with the Milwaukee Brewers. Braun's urine tested positive in October for elevated testosterone, and ESPN reported the positive test in December.

Even when he's not at Miller Park, disgraced Brewers slugger Ryan Braun is causing trouble. Take what happened to Milwaukee fan Karen Eidem on Wednesday night. She decided to show her frustration with the team and its star's cheating by wearing a Ryan Braun jersey she had modified to read: "FRAUD. " And just like that, security tapped her on the shoulder and told her the shirt violated the fan code of conduct and that she would have to change or leave the ballpark. Eidem turned the shirt inside out and stayed for the game.

Major League Baseball and the players union Monday agreed to drop the 100-game suspension imposed on Colorado Rockies catcher Eliezer Alfonzo for a positive drug test, because of the same procedural issues that came up in the Ryan Braun case. Alfonzo missed 48 games - the final 15 of last season and the first 33 of this year. Braun's 50-game suspension for a positive drug test was overturned in February by arbitrator Shyam Das after Braun's lawyers argued his urine sample was not handled in the manner specified by baseball's drug agreement.

NEW YORK - Former National League MVP Ryan Braun of the Milwaukee Brewers was suspended without pay for the rest of the season and the postseason on Monday in the first penalty following Major League Baseball's investigation of the Florida clinic accused of distributing performance-enhancing drugs. Braun accepted the ban. "I am not perfect. I realize now that I have made some mistakes. I am willing to accept the consequences of those actions," he said in a statement provided by MLB. "This situation has taken a toll on me and my entire family, and it is has been a distraction to my teammates and the Brewers organization.

JOE MATHER'S two-run single with two outs in the ninth inning lifted the Chicago Cubs to a 3-2 comeback win over the visiting St. Louis Cardinals on Monday night. St. Louis closer Jason Motte (1-1) had the Cubs down to their final strike when Mather, a former Cardinal, grounded a 2-2 slider up the middle, scoring Bryan LaHair and Geovany Soto. LaHair battled Motte for 12 pitches before drawing a one-out walk. Motte then walked Soto, before Steve Clevenger's grounder moved the runners up to set the plate for Mather.

NEW YORK - Alex Rodriguez certainly leads the Yankees in headlines this season even though he hasn't played a single major-league game. Injuries have kept him away from the team since last year's playoffs, and now he faces discipline from Major League Baseball in its drug investigation, possibly up to a lifetime ban. "The likelihood of a severe punishment for Rodriguez is very high," former MLB commissioner Fay Vincent said Wednesday. The three-time AL MVP, who turns 38 on Saturday, is among more than a dozen players MLB has targeted following allegations they were linked to Biogenesis, the Florida clinic accused of distributing performance-enhancing drugs.

RYAN BRAUN apparently has some work to do to repair his friendship with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Describing himself as shocked and disappointed, Rodgers said yesterday after the Packers' first training-camp practice that Braun "looked at me in the eye on multiple occasions and repeatedly denied the allegations" that the Milwaukee Brewers slugger was using performance-enhancing drugs. Braun this week accepted a season-ending 65-game suspension after admitting to violating baseball's rules against using PEDs.

MILWAUKEE - There was thought, Ryne Sandberg said, to granting Roberto Hernandez a shot at his first complete game in almost a year. The sinkerballer limited Milwaukee to one run in eight innings Wednesday on 84 pitches. He attacked an aggressive lineup that has occupied first place for 92 straight days only to stumble this week. But the Phillies manager wanted his $50 million closer, Jonathan Papelbon, to record his 22d save. Papelbon sealed a 4-1 win over the Brewers with nine pitches for his third save in three nights.

THERE WAS A considerable amount of uncertainty in the press box about the appropriate terminology to describe the gesture that Ryan Braun made after he had popped the meat thermometer on the Phillies for a second straight game. To one scribe, it looked like a conductor directing an orchestra. To another, it looked like a rapper bouncing with his audience. One's perspective may depend in part upon one's age. Whatever the case, the message was clear. So was the implication.

THEY BOOED HIM during introductions. They booed the first pitch of his first at-bat, and they booed louder as he trotted back toward his dugout after ending the first inning with a groundout. Hell, those of the 45,061 who arrived early for yesterday's Phillies home opener even booed Ryan Braun during batting practice, cheered when he dribbled or mishit the ball, which was often. "I was terrible," the Brewers' tainted slugger said after his historic day yesterday. "I was swinging as hard as I could and I couldn't do anything.

The Phillies paraded into Citizens Bank Park, down a removable staircase in center field and across a red carpet, just as they do to inaugurate every new season at this ballpark. They marched Tuesday afternoon with a new leader, a man who knows the margin between contention and irrelevancy is thinner than ever. The denizens of this decade-old stadium understand that, and it is why these Phillies must generate weeks of goodwill to convince their skeptics. When daytime turned to dusk during a 10-4 loss to Milwaukee, this crowd departed with a familiar bitterness.

The Phillies fans were tough on Ryan Braun. The Milwaukee Brewers rightfielder was even tougher on the Phillies. The louder the booing, the farther the ball traveled all over Citizens Bank Park on a day when Braun personally ruined the Phillies' home opener. He entered the game Tuesday batting .150 with no RBIs in his first five games, but Braun belted three homers and drove in seven runs as the Brewers defeated the Phillies, 10-4. Phillies fans never lowered the volume on the boos directed at Braun, which turned out to be music to his ears.

AT SOME POINT this season, you'll hear somebody talk about the energy, or attitude, or want-to that the Phillies appear to be lacking. When that happens, remind them of yesterday, when the Brewers took the field for batting practice around 2:30 p.m. and then never left. See, there wasn't much energy percolating in the ballpark by the end of a home-opening 10-4 loss, not because the Phillies lacked the requisite amount of dirt and/or pine tar on their uniforms, but because they watched a two-run deficit transform into a six-run deficit, an activity that tends to have a deflationary effect on even the most robust of psyches.

Mark Reynolds, the Milwaukee Brewers first baseman, had driven the ball a long way with his looping swing, sending Ben Revere back to Citizens Bank Park's center-field fence in the seventh inning Tuesday. Ryan Braun treated the Phillies' pitching staff the way he treats urine collectors, slamming three home runs in the Brewers' 10-4 victory, but Reynolds' deep fly ball was as high and far as any of them, and only the fact that he hit it to straightaway center field, 401 feet from home plate, gave Revere any opportunity to chase it down.

Milwaukee's Ryan Braun ignored loud boos in his home spring-training debut Saturday in Phoenix, producing a single and a walk as a Brewers split squad beat the Los Angeles Dodgers, 6-5. Braun's first at-bat at Maryvale Baseball Park was met with an extended chorus of boos, especially from Dodgers fans filling the third-base side. Braun walked and scored on a single by Carlos Gomez. In the third, Brewers fans on the first-base side tried to drown out the boos with cheers before Braun reached on an infield single.

The lefthander didn't go down and was able to walk off the field after Rafael Ynoa's liner hit him just above the ear. Asked whether Aquino may have suffered a concussion, manager Walt Weiss called it a "possibility. " Niese MRI: No problems The New York Mets said an MRI on pitcher Jon Niese's ailing left shoulder did not show any major problems.
