Never play hard, kids. It can only lead to bad things.

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun‘s suffered a left knee strain and a sprained ankle when he slid into the wall down the left field line at Wrigley Field while trying to get to a foul ball. He was able to walk off under his own power but he was limping. Figure Braun is heading to the DL.

Braun is hitting .325/.388/.566 with 22 home runs, 65 RBI, 13 stolen bases, and 61 runs scored in 98 games this season. There may have been a slight chance of someone making a waiver trade for him, but if that was even remotely possible, him hurting himself now would seem to put the ultimate kibosh on that.
