Ryan Braun has murdered the Padres in recent years but he won't be appearing in the series that starts tonight. It was just announced that he has been suspended for the remainder of the 2013 season due to violations of the Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program. He admitted it too.

Before we start casting stones, remember Padres SS Everth Cabrera could face the same type of punishment for his involvement with Florida's biogenisis facility and Yasmani Grandal served a suspension to start the season.
