I've heard the same from #Brewers clubhouse: Braun wants to talk & will answer to everything, incl. why he went so far in Feb. '12 presser.— Adam McCalvy (@AdamMcCalvy) August 17, 2013
Braun accepted a 65-game suspension on July 22, which will keep him out of the remainder of the 2013 season.
Word also came out Friday that a man who reportedly was Braun's friend for a long time has filed a lawsuit against him, and the lawsuit claims that Braun doped back in college.
According to ESPN, Ralph Sasson, 29, claims he helped Braun through an appeal of a positive steroid test after the 2011 season by finding out background information on Dino Laurenzi Jr., who took Braun's sample.
