I wish Andy Laroche was Ryan Braun-good. Ugh.
The worst part is he'll do it in a Pirates uniform.
Looking back on this thread, it makes me grateful to have M-Cab and now Braun in a dynasty league. The problem is I'd have to search for a new 3B in 2009.
I think it was evident that Braun's average would go down from Pujols-esque to a .290-300 level with his K/BB rate as it was and is now. However, Braun makes up for it with great bat speed with a smooth, compact swing which translates into higher power potential as well as those beastly stretches that can carry a team each week.
