Ryan Braun was stranded on a baseball island Tuesday with no rescue ships in sight and no material to build an escape raft.

In the wake of accepting a season-ending suspension for violating the Major League Baseball drug policy after denying guilt for a year and a half the Milwaukee Brewers' embattled leftfielder was eviscerated by national media to a degree not seen since the days of Barry Bonds.

Cheat liar fraud were the three descriptions used most frequently after Braun was busted in MLB's investigation of the infamous Biogenesis clinic alleged to have sold performance-enhancing drugs to players.

In more of a surprise players from other clubs lined up to blast Braun for being exposed as a user of PEDs after vigorously proclaiming his innocence for so long.

"I have an autographed Braun jersey I'm going to take down" said Los Angeles Dodgers utility man Skip Schumaker who often battled against Braun in the National League Central while playing for St. Louis. "I don't want my son associating that with what I've worked so hard to do to get to here and have him compare Braun to me.

"My opinion it should be one strike and you're out. It's ridiculous. He lied. I was convinced he didn't do it. He should hand his MVP to (Los Angeles Dodgers centerfielder) Matt Kemp."

Schumaker referred to the 2011 NL most valuable player award won by Braun over runner-up Kemp. Later it was revealed that Braun failed a drug test in October of that season at the outset of the playoffs though it was overturned on a chain-of-custody dispute that MLB considered a technicality.

Asked Tuesday if he thought Braun should be stripped of that MVP award Kemp said yes.

"I'm disappointed" Kemp said. "I talked to Braun before any of this happened. We had conversations and I considered him a friend. I don't think anybody likes to be lied to and I feel like a lot of people have felt betrayed. That's not just me that's the whole Brewers organization a lot of his teammates. I think a lot of people feel that way."

Jack O'Connell secretary-treasurer of the Baseball Writers' Association of America said the 2011 MVP vote was final and would not be reversed.

Much of the player vitriol came out of Arizona. The Diamondbacks were eliminated in a tense five-game division series in October 2011 with Braun batting .500 with a home run and four RBI.
