07:13 AM ET 06.10 | Ron Roenicke is worried about outfielder Ryan Braun, but it has nothing to do with a scandal. The Brewers removed [Braun] in the third inning Sunday because of soreness in his right thumb, the same ailment of which manager Ron Roenicke spoke with some urgency only a few hours earlier. The Brewers were leading the Phillies, 4-0, when Braun abruptly exited. He struck out in the first inning and was replaced by Logan Schafer when that spot in the lineup came around again in the bottom of the third. "We've got to figure out what to do there," Roencike said. "We've got to start going in the right direction with him, and sometimes it's not. ... I'm hoping we don't have to [place him on the disabled list]."

Why not try a bionic thumb...this guy has tried everything other unnatural performance enhancement, including eating ground up fetuses and sacrificing virgins.

Braun may have to get used to sitting out. He tested positive last year but got off because of a technicality. Now he seems surprised his name was one of those mentioned in the investigation of the bio-genesis case.

I sacrificed a few virgins back in my younger days and I'm here to tell you that it is not all it's cracked up to be.

Did you at least get Satan to make an appearance?

Ryan Braun's lawyer may be more talented than his client.

The FN mods in Waziristan mess up again by not giving us a Yanks or Bosox topic to attract a decent number of posters.

That's because he's not a comic genius like me.
