07:12 AM ET 09.06 | Suspended Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun has taken a more personal touch to reshaping his image. CBS 58 has confirmed [Braun] is calling Brewers season ticket holders to apologize. "Hey there's a guy on the phone claiming to be Ryan Braun, it's probably one of your buddies messing with you." That's exactly what Kelly's Bleachers owner Pat Guenther thought Thursday afternoon. He picked up the phone thinking it'd be a joke. "Hey Pat this is Ryan Braun," Guenther recalls. "Right then and there I knew it was his voice based on interviews I've seen on TV. I knew damn well it was his voice." So he did what anyone in the service industry would do. "I said what can I do for you? He said, I messed up, in a nutshell, I messed up. I just want to reach out and say I'm sorry."

He is a liar, a bully and a coward.

I'm not impressed.

If you do something going back to at lest your college time in Miami and then continue to do it through age 29, can it really be called a " mistake?"

I think it becomes and defines you after 10+ years. All of them from before, now and to come. shut up. and stop referring to it as a mistake.

I would ask Braun why he told everyone he only used PEDs to get back from injury if I had him on the phone.

September 6, 2013  08:53 AM ET

I'd ask him if he's sorry enough to give all the money back that he earned by cheating.

Thank God for Caller ID.

When the 14 season starts the Brew Crew fans will again be cheering for number 8 thinking he can still hit home runs and knock in over 100 runs a year. If he cannot perform at the high level as in the past the cheers will suddenly become boos.

Exactly. If he wants to talk, then sit down with serious reporters and answer their questions. I find him the most annoying of all of them, even more than Arod. Braun wants to be "loved" after all of this. Seen as the tragic hero, a victim of circumstances. Just admit it, ya juiced up because you thought it would give you an advantage and make you more money. It worked. The rest of this is just part of the cost of doing business that way.

I'd ask him why he tried to destroy an innocent pisscourier after he had already escaped punishment for his dirty pisstest.

September 6, 2013  09:36 AM ET

if you are truly sorry, give the money back and downsize your house/lifestyle. you still have skills and will be able to make a much better living than the rest of us on a much lower contract for the remaining years that you can still play.

otherwise you can make calls, say your sorry or whatever, but you'll still be a stack of **** bro.

"I messed up, in a nutshell, I messed up. I just want to reach out and say I'm sorry."

He should have probably (and more accurately) said, "I messed up, in a nutshell, I messed up. I just want to reach out and say I'm sorry I got caught."

I see PEDs may be the TotD ................................... AGAIN.....

September 6, 2013  09:49 AM ET

I'd also tell him he had his Jewish holidays mixed up. Yom Kippur is the day of atonement, not Rosh Hashanah...

I wouldn't worry about his 3rd one..... It's the possibility of the extra Y Chromosome that would scare me more......
