I dare to bring up the Jeff Francoeur comparison but that's not the case here since Braun has already walked 6 more times in 2 months then Francoeur walked in 3 months.

I haven't read the whole thread but where does everyone think he'll be ranked for next season? 3rd, 4th or 5th? I'll probably have him 3rd behind Cabrera but I think there will be a lot of different opinions.

What are the chances he gets moved to the of? He made another error today, 13 errors already.

For every homerun he hits he seems to get moved up another round....Pretty soon your going to see him going before Tomlinson in football drafts. :-b

I think a move to the outfield would make him a borderline first rounder next year. No info, but I doubt it happens. Morneau was really bad in the field when he came up and he adjusted and has become one of the better fielding first basemen in the league. They are two different people, but fielding can be taught if one is willing to listen.

not unless it persists y/y/y. Aramis topped out at 25 but he worked and got good enough. Braun can do the same with time probably

At this kind of pace, Braun is putting up early 2nd round numbers IMO. Batting 3rd in a strong MIL lineup, hits for power, steals a few, great average. Man, I can honestly compare him with some of the top 3B like M.Cab, Wright, and A.Ram.

He's already matched Wright's homerun total (18) and has two more than A-Ram, even though the other guys had basically a 2-month head-start on him. M-Cab has 24, but Braun might even catch him the way he's going...

If you compare his stats to Wright's for this year, he's pretty close to catching him in everything but steals.

I think if it wasn't for Garrett Atkins most of us wouldn't even be second guessing a 2nd round pick. Hopefully, the thought of Atkins will scare enough owners away from Braun!
