I imagine this guy has to do something to atone for all the selfish and morally corrupt things he does. That incident in Milwaukee is not an isolated incident with him. It just the only one reported. The Reds spent alot of hush money so they would'nt look like the Bengals. So keep printing those feel good stories about a real creep who has everyone snowed. Those relief goods were only for his relatives. That drunk could care less about other people.

not a bshackfan is a moron. if you had any idea what happened in milwaukee you wouldn't make a dumb statement like that. i know what happened and i know why the charges were never filed. i also know bryan. there is a lot of things that you can say about the guy but what you just said is completely incorrect.

I agree w/ not a bshack fan. This is a guy who is corrupt and plays off the innocent card very well. If your a girl you should be very cautious!

Hush money? LOL! Why would the Reds spend a lot of "hush money" on a minor league player that most people have never heard of? Perhaps before you go typing things you have no idea about you should get the facts straight and hard evidence to back your s$*t talking up. Some of us tend to forget that these ball players are only human. He may have made a bad judgement call but there was a reason no charges were filed. And for the person that posted they knew Brian, if you know him so well you should know how to spell his name.

I don't know a thing about "Milwaukee",but I tried Milwaukees Best once and decided Milwaukee dosen't have much to offer. I like Brian. If you haven't met the man you can't say #@?#*.:)

Sorry, my little brother spells his name with a "Y" and it is habit.

I do not think that I have to prove to you that I know him, but I probably know him better then most people.

As far as this case the reason that there were not any charges filed is because the girl accussing left a message on his cell phone saying what a good time she had. That is why the charges were dropped, luckily BrIan did not delete the message. After the prosecutors looked at her financial background and were able to see the mess she was in, the reason for the accusations were clear.

This information was never published by the news media. I guess that it is not big news that he was 100% innocent.

I met Brian in Reds Training Camp, Sarasota Fl when he was dating my daughter...he is a great person, very much a gentleman with a kind heart, who loves his family and is a loyal friend. He has had more than his share of heartache and sorrow in his life with losing his mom to cancer and the untimely death of his younger brother. Through all this Brian stayed strong for his family. He is a very talented athlete and hope he will continue to have opportunities to play professional ball in the future. The game is much better for having Brian part of it. I wish him much continued success and happines going forward. He deserves it.

I met this man after he relentlessly came after me for almost 10 months via MY SPACE! He was SOOoOo NOT my "type", bit a friend was in town on NYE 2008, and I needed a last minute date. WHY NOT!?!? I called him and set it up. LONG story short..... I thought he was the GREATEST and fell head over heels for him. He Was my best friend. Needless to say I got pregnant right away. We decided not to keep the baby. He was out of MLB now and basically lost at what to do with himself, and I was in my last semester of nursing school. We spiraled downhill. I can honestly say Brian isn't a bad guy, and I don't believe he "ran several women" all at once. We just had too much to deal with, an the stress of it all broke us both. I loved him dearly and still do. I always will! No one has the right to judge anyone based on a bad choice they may have made. He's a VERY kind, nice man that doesn't like drama. I don't judge him for the things I was told about him, or mistakes he has made. I only know how he was with me, an even though I will forever miss him an be so sad it's over between us, I will ALWAYS look back at all the times heade me smile through the good and the bad and be thankful he was in my life to make me feel what true love really is. Thank you B... I'll always LOVE you..... K!
