If, like a lot of people, you read HBT at work for the most part, you missed out on Ryan Braun insanity last night.  Here’s a roundup of it:

Finally, I went on NBC SportsTalk last night, about a half hour after it all went down, to talk to Russ about it all. Check it out here:

Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports that Giants pitcher Dereck Rodriguez has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with a Grade 1 strain of his hamstring. Rodriguez apparently suffered the injury during Tuesday’s altercation with the Dodgers which featured Yasiel Puig and Nick Hundley.

Rodriguez, 22, has been having an outstanding rookie season, posting a 2.25 ERA with a 65/19 K/BB ratio in 80 innings across 12 starts and two relief appearances.

Casey Kelly will start in Rodriguez’s place against the Reds on Friday.
