The player reaction to the Ryan Braun’s Biogenesis suspension continues to produce astounding levels of both honesty and condemnation around Major League Baseball. We’ve already heard from rival players—Skip Schumaker Joe Saunders and C.J. Wilson among others—but on Friday a former teammate weighed in with what might be the most pointed comments yet. Zack Greinke a current Dodger who was a teammate of Braun’s on the 2011 Milwaukee team that advanced to the NLCS spoke with Los Angeles Times beat writer Dylan Hernandez. Here are a few of his responses: On whether he believed Braun when he said he’d done nothing wrong: "Oh yeah 100% believed him. Everything was so convincing. He had people to blame. He seemed like a really good guy. He was a good teammate at the time. You don’t know the guys that he was pinning it on. I'm not positive but I think everyone 100% believed him at the time. Especially the next year he looked just as good as the year before. His numbers his whole career Hall of Fame numbers. How could you not believe him? He was so convincing."
