Rodgers drops in on Brewers

Posted by Mike Spofford on February 29, 2012 – 3:46 pm

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers paid a visit to the Milwaukee Brewers during their spring training workout in Maryvale, Ariz., on Wednesday.

Rodgers, who is good friends with Brewers LF and reigning NL MVP Ryan Braun, chatted with several players and shagged some balls in the outfield during batting practice. Last week, Braun was successful in getting a 50-game suspension for a violation of Major League Baseball’s drug-testing policy overturned, and Rodgers notably came to his friend’s defense on Twitter.

Rodgers did not speak to reporters or conduct any interviews.

    Good job by Rodgers, too many false-positives in that testing game. Go Pack!

    Steroids killed the game I once loved. I’m glad the guy had his test overturned, but too many players are still shootin’ it in the ass and gettin’ away with it. Those players have destroyed Americas Past Time Game (Thanks Bonds, McGuire, Sosa, Conseco, Clemens, A-Fraud, etc). Football has takin’ the reigns as Americas Sport. Let’s hope the NFL never has it’s own “Steroid Era”.

    Not to be cynical, but I’m pretty sure all major sports leagues are in the midst of a “Steroid Era”. People who think undetectable steroids no longer exist and the drug testing programs catch everyone are simply naive. I’m sure there are people juicing in the NFL. Even in D2 college football, use is prevalent, and very few of those athletes have any shot whatsoever of achieving professional status. Players who are on the cusp of making a pro sports league have a huge incentive to take banned substances, and from a practical standpoint it is surely worth the risk for those players. The amount of money tied up in all this ensures unethical scientists will continuously develop new types of PEDs and develop new ways to beat testing programs. The cat and mouse game involving sporting leagues and cheating athletes will likely never stop.

    Rodgers looks good doing anything. He’s a man with many talents.

    @Cali, if you think baseball has a PED problem I don’t think watching football is the answer. The guys in the NFL are on as many illegal substances if not more. I pretty much just assume all professional athletes are doing it now. There have been some in the NFL that say that 60-80% of the players take HGH. Until they test for it I think those numbers may be conservative.

    STEROIDS have been a part of all sports they just got it calmed down before it was a great big deal to everyone and unlike baseball they keep there mouths closed lol

    Great to see some support from other wisconsin athletes like Rodgers for Braun,getting accused of steroid use is no doubt a nitemare for an athlete,especially if it turns out to be not true

    I agree with Don, it IS good to be king. Will be interesting to see how the spots turn out. He has a lot of “star power” so should be good for the Brew Crew. Two MVP’s in the same year from Wisconsin pro teams, pretty cool.

    Oh well. They’re gonna do it regardless. All we can do is watch.

    I think its awesome that Aaron Rodgers and Ryan Braun, who were named the NFL’s and NL’s MVPs this year are great friends.
