Longtime Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun officially retired on Tuesday afternoon. Don't let the Brewers tribute distract you from the time he almost ruined a man's livelihood for no reason.

We're far removed from Braun's initial positive steroid test, and the fallout that occurred as a result of that test. While I'm of the mindset that players who took performance-enhancing drugs during the steroid era deserve a second chance given the disadvantage they would have been at had they not taken part, what Braun did was indefensible.

Not only did Braun deny his positive test — a step taken by many star players during that era — he tried to frame an innocent drug collector to clear his name. His legal team blamed the drug collector for bringing the original urine test the next morning, rather than the night of, and even tried to frame him as an anti-semite.

"It is the first step in restoring my good name and reputation," he said at the time. "We were able to get through this because I am innocent and the truth is on our side."

Milwaukee Brewers: Ryan Braun's career is forever tainted

In 2013, Braun later admitted those were lies, and apologized to the drug collector.

"I have no one to blame but myself. I know that over the last year and a half I made some serious mistakes, both in the information I failed to share during my arbitration hearing and the comments I made to the press afterwards," Braun said at the time, per ESPN. "I have disappointed the people closest to me — the ones who fought for me because they truly believed me all along. I kept the truth from everyone. For a long time, I was in denial and convinced myself that I had not done anything wrong."

Afghan officer who fought with US forces rescued from Kabul

  Afghan officer who fought with US forces rescued from Kabul Time was running out for Mohammad Khalid Wardak, a high-profile Afghan national police officer who spent years working alongside the American military. Hunted by the Taliban, he was hiding with his family in Kabul, constantly moving from place to place as they tried — and failed — several times to reach a rendezvous point where they could be rescued. After at least four attempts in as many days, the family finally was whisked away by helicopter Wednesday in a dramatic rescue — called Operation Promise Kept — carried out under cover of darkness by the U.S.

In Milwaukee, Braun has been forgiven. His achievements on the field largely outweigh his sins off of it for Brewers fans. Such is generally the case.

But for the rest of baseball, Braun's legacy is the aforementioned scandal, and how he handled his original suspension. His retirement from baseball is appropriate, and whatever accolades we still credit him with ought to come with an asterisk.

Patriots reportedly have 'never been close' to trading Stephon Gilmore .
Gilmore is in the final season of a five-year, $65 million contract and will become a free agent if he cannot reach a deal with the Patriots. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said during an appearance on WEEI's "Gresh & Keefe" last week that, while it's possible, he doesn't believe Gilmore will be traded this season. "I'd say it's possible, there's just not a big window to do it," Rapoport said. "Like, if you look at just the calendar, he'll be back (two weeks) before the trade deadline. So, theoretically, somebody would have to say, 'I trust enough in what I've seen in one game or two games to trade for him.
