While many Major League Baseball players have expressed disappointment and frustration with Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun, current Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Zack Grienke ripped into his former Milwaukee Brewers teammate.
Speaking to the Los Angeles Times, Greinke says Braun forced him (and others) to lie for him and threw people under the bus, only caring about himself.
Strong words, no doubt.
Per Greinke, via Dylan Hernandez:
“The main thing is, yeah, he lied to us,” Greinke said. “He forced us to lie for him, threw people under the bus in order to help himself out and didn’t care, blamed others for his mistakes and it’s just a lot of things you don’t expect from people.”
“The fact that even to this day he hasn’t had a real apology is really upsetting to me,” Greinke said. “I thought about it a bunch. He still hasn’t really apologized.”
Grienke even rips on Braun’s character:
Asked whether his opinion on Braun as a player changed, Greinke replied, “Not even talking about the player. It’s just the person. Just the fact that he was willing to use anyone that got in his path. The closer you were to him, the more he would use you. It’s just disappointing that a human being could be like that.”
