Alex Rodriguez, who continues to appeal his unprecedented 211-game suspension, denies a report that says a member of his "inner circle" leaked documents linking Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun to the Biogenesis performance-enhancing drug case. A report by CBS' "60 Minutes" show said unnamed sources claimed Rodriguez's camp was responsible for the handing over of documents that linked Yankees teammate Frank Cervelli and Braun to the Biogenesis scandal. The Yankees third baseman told reporters in Boston on Friday night that the report "was not true at all" and that it was simply an attempt to alienate A-Rod from other players.

Players turn their backs on Braun Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun is getting no love from his peers after agreeing last week to a season-ending 65-game suspension for using performance-enhancing drugs. Although none of Braun's teammates have criticized Braun publicly, several reporters who have been around the Brewers clubhouse say privately players have expressed satisfaction with the suspension. And the rest of the league is equally angry with the former National League most valuable player.

Zack Greinke wouldn't say anything about Ryan Braun in the days immediately after his former teammate was suspended for violating baseball's drug policy. Uncertain whether he wanted to share his opinion, Greinke asked for another day to collect his thoughts, then another. Friday, Greinke broke his silence. "I just get nervous talking about this whole situation,” Greinke said. Greinke spoke slowly and quietly, but his message was clear: He was disappointed. Greinke was on the Milwaukee Brewers in 2011, when Braun tested positive for a performance-enhancing drug.

It appears some Milwaukee Brewers staff are a little sensitive about star outfielder Ryan Braun accepting a 65-game suspension for violating Major League Baseball's drug policy. A Brewers fan says she was asked to leave Miller Park on Wednesday night after she modified the name "Braun" on the back of her Brewers shirt to "Fraud. " Karen Eidem says a security guard told her the modified shirt violated the team's fan code of conduct. She only was allowed to stay after she agreed to wear the shirt inside out. The Brewers later said in statement that security staff should not have asked Eidem to leave the game and offered her a ticket to another game, according to WTMJ-AM in Milwaukee.

The owner of the Milwaukee Brewers said Wednesday he expects suspended slugger Ryan Braun to do and say "the right things" to rehabilitate his image among fans. Mark Attanasio, the Los Angeles-based owner of the team, told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel he had no intention to trade or release Braun. Although Braun forfeited about $3.4 million by accepting a 65-game suspension Monday, the Brewers have guaranteed him another $127 million through 2020. They would remain obligated to pay that money if they released him. Attanasion also said he expected Braun to speak publicly -- rather than limit his comments to a prepared statement -- once Major League Baseball has completed an investigation that is expected to result in more than a dozen suspensions for violations of baseball's drug policy.

Writers from around Tribune Co. discuss how 2011 National League MVP Ryan Braun might perform next season after returning from his suspension for violating baseball's drug policy. Feel free to join the conversation by leaving a comment of your own. Bill Shaikin, Los Angeles Times It's a tough question, because Braun accepted his suspension in part because MLB agreed not to disclose the evidence. Logic would say Braun would not have used performance-enhancing substances last season, after he had come so close to a suspension then.
