Braun says no beef with Mets
Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun said he expected nothing out of the ordinary in tonight’s matchup against the Mets, the teams’ first game since a tense night on May 15 in which Braun was plunked and David Wright was removed from the New York lineup to avoid the possibility of retaliation.
Braun confirmed an ESPN New York report that both Wright and Mets manager Terry Collins approached him at the All-Star Game to smooth things over.
Besides, Braun said the Brewers are more concerned about their bid for the postseason.
“We have far bigger things to worry about than what happened four months ago,” Braun said. “As far as I’m concerned, it’s done and over with.
“I like David, too. He’s my boy. So I hope we don’t do anything.”
It’s notable that the Mets pitcher who threw at Braun, D.J. Carrasco is no longer with them. And tonight’s Brewers starter, Mike Fiers, was still pitching at Triple-A Nashville on May 15.
