Anyone worried about Braun yet?

Postby jahmon » Thu Apr 17, 2008 3:41 pm

He's hit 3 HRs, but this guy is in the midst of a slump that he hasn't had yet in his yougn career. I know he's in his first full year so he's most likely in for some adjustments, but I'm getting tired of him coming up with runners on and not coming through.

Just hit a sac fly, but for first/second round money, it'd be nice if he could come through with a base hit every now and then with runners on. Looks like the Brewers as a team are scuffling the last few days or so.

Just bitching. He's probably gonna be fine but I have high expectations for him this year.

Peace,

Jah

I would be, but I'm currently killing without him.

If you're expecting late first/early second round numbers, I'd be worried. One of the riskiest early picks this year!

Last year he came into a lineup that was already mashing - Fielder, Hardy, Hart, etc. This year it seems like the entire lineup is stone cold. Once they can pick it up - and Fielder's HR today is a very welcome sign - I think that Braun's play will improve as well....

wishful thinking coming from a Cub fan :-b

The guy is a stud. The team as a whole is struggling against RH pitching right now(Braun is hitting .294 in 17 ab against LH)

Give him some time. You'll get your 1st round numbers.

Jealous Moron? Nice.
Being a Cubs fan has no affect in regards to my Fantasy Baseball rankings or teams. All I will say to this (to avoid making negative comments towards you), is take a look at what people expected from this guy before the season, and talk to me at the end of the year.

I seem to notice that this jdsun1 guy seems to like calling a lot of people idiots or morons for some reason when their opinion doesn't agree with his. :-?
