my buddy played in tha cape league against him and told me he hit the longest HR he has ever seen off his teamate. He proceeded to grab him in our rookie draft this year. He played against him and said he is going to be a great 3B.

Braun is pretty bad in the field right now, and Corey Koskie seems to be a good fit for the Brewers at third. Also, when JJ Hardy comes back, I see Bill Hall playing a lot at third too.

Unless the Brewers make a move sometime for next season, I don't see him getting called up until 2008....Possibly the end of the 2007 season just to get some experience in the bigs.

I talked to my buddy today and he said that braun was horrible defensively. Expect him to hit a lot of bombs at hit for avg. the guy was great in the cape league with a wood bat, so he never had to adjust, but he needs to get better defensively if he wants to get called up.
