Has anyone ever picked up a guy in a competitive league (picking up Albert Pujols doesn't count) that has done what Braun has? My league keeps three players and I never thought I'd be using one of those keepers on a guy I picked up in early June.
Jerred Weaver was awfully good last season as a mid-season pickup (for my opponent.) 2.56 era, 1.032 whip, 11 wins, 105 Ks. Can't ask much more than that from a free agent pitching pickup. I can't remember another hitter taking off like Braun though.
Well, there's a fairly good chance that Braun could have better numbers than Albert did -- in 40 less games.
