In a bit of helpful news, it's looking a little bit like Ryan Braun will be unable to go this weekend against the Reds. He's missed the last four games with a sore calf, and while they haven't put him on the DL, he said he's not resumed baseball activities and doesn't know if he'll be able to play this weekend.

I would like the Reds to win games at full strength, but they need all the help they can get.
