MILWAUKEE — Ryan Braun let down scores of fans with his suspension for violating baseball's drug program. And, he also drew the ire of players around the majors.

Skip Schumaker of the Los Angeles Dodgers says watching Braun makes him sick. Schumaker says he plans to take down his autographed Braun jersey hanging in his baseball room. He thinks Braun should hand over his MVP award to Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp, who finished second in the 2011 balloting.

Mariners pitcher Joe Saunders says "everybody's frustrated, especially the players." Saunders says he feels cheated.

Braun addressed his stunned Brewers teammates Monday afternoon. Second baseman Rickie Weeks described the slugger as "somber" and "embarrassed."
