Most #Dodgers declined to discuss Ryan Braun suspension. Not Skip Schumaker. Strong words from him.
"I can't stand it. It (PED use) needs to be eliminated from the game. I have an autographed Ryan Braun jersey hanging in my baseball room at home that I'll be taking down now because I don't want my son connecting this with what I had to do to get to to where I am and to have what I have."
Braun's 65-game negotiated suspension is not enough for Schumaker.
"In my opinion, it should be an automatic lifetime ban," he said. "One strike -- you're out. ... It's ridiculous. They're still doing it?"
"He lied. He lied to a lot of people. I was actually convinced after that MVP year that he didn't do anything. I think he should give that MVP trophy to Matt Kemp (runner-up in 2011)."
As for the rest of the names linked to the Biogenesis clinic in Florida:
"Suspend them all. It needs to get out of baseball."
A video of Braun came on the TVs in the locker room as Schumaker was talking.
"Watching him talk now -- it makes me sick," Schumaker said.
