08:12 AM ET 12.12 | A prominent Arizona Diamondbacks fan has apparently taken to Twitter with his thoughts on Ryan Braun. [U.S. Sen. John McCain] said via his Twitter account Sunday that the National League MVP "juiced" and jokingly suggested a replay of the Diamondbacks-Milwaukee Brewers NL Division Series. Milwaukee won the series in five games. ... Braun is facing a 50-game suspension by Major League Baseball. He disputes the test results but has been prohibited by his representatives from being specific. McCain, who lost the 2008 presidential election to Barack Obama, has long worked to rid baseball of performance-enhancing drugs, at times threatening MLB with federal legislation.

I like McCain but he should keep his trap shut and let the investigation take its course.

As a Brewer fan I must say....that is trrrible!!!!!
I am just so relieved that my baseball idol has never been linked to PEDs....just taking naps in the dugout.

Not funny. Not appropriate. Not no how. That's the kind of destructive thing that makes Congress a running joke. And I'm a 'backs fan.

According to the rumors, Braun's testosterone level was insanely high. Twice the previous "record" from MLB drug tests.

Sad if it's true.

I don't know. For some reasom i want to give this guy the benefit of the doubt.

John McCain can't even handle the things he's actually responsible for so he should do something better with his time then hang out on twitter. That said, I think this guy Braun is dirty and I don't want to hear any stupid excuse he may come up with. Sit for 50 games bro.

I guess Braun is patiently waiting for MLB to graciously take back their accusations. Not likely to happen. Once they implicate you they never take it back. He is labeled and damaged. From here on out it is just Deny Deny Deny

Use the Rocket's excuse....you thought your trainer was giving you vitamin shots.

Yeah! That's the ticket! Vitamins yeah! They shot me up with vitamins.
I love it when the stars get caught because that just might scare the rest.

Or like Palmeiro who injected himself with B12. Which is available in pill form 3000mgs.

Another black eye for MLB.......period....whether he juiced or not...now no matter what the guy does he's labelled...if he has a great year everyone will be screaming to test him...if he has a lousy year everyone say "see what happens when your off the juice"....
