After sitting out three games with a neck injury Ryan Braun is in the Brewers’ lineup today, batting third and playing left field.

In the 11th inning of yesterday’s loss to the Diamondbacks it looked like Braun would pinch-hit with two outs, but then manager Ron Roenicke called him back sent up pitcher and career .152 hitter Kyle Lohse to make the game-ending out.

Considering that turn of events it seemed like Braun must have been in pretty rough shape, yet less than 24 hours later he’s apparently good to go.

    HGH works miracles.

    Dammit, and I was hoping to get the first comment in wondering how long it would take for the HGH reference. Well done.

    Sending Braun up even without letting him swing would have been better than pinch hitting lohshe. There was a good chance Heath bell would have walked him.

      Yep, I agree with this. Sending Lohse to hit was a give-up type of move. They would have had just as good a chance letting Braun go up there without swinging while waving a white flag in the dugout to distract Bell.

    Must be juicing again.

    I think he was just scared to play against the Dbacks

    Do people actually think HGH is some kind of panacea that magically cures all injuries, instead of having fairly specific uses that are almost never applicable to professional athletes?
