Ryan Braun hits like eight home runs, but there were a lot of things that we learned about the collector, about the collection process, about the way that the entire thing worked that made us very concerned and very suspicious about what could have actually happened

Brutal, ugly game yesterday as the Brewers bombed the Phils 10-4 in the Phillie home opener. Ryan Braun hit three home runs and drove in seven runs for Milwaukee.

He allowed a leadoff walk and uncorked a two-out wild pitch in the second, but kept the Tigers off the board. The Phils came into the game with…
