Ha! Good one.

I guess that was kinda the point of my thread.

If it actually is the reason he's struggling (not saying it is), but if it somehow is..... then I say you've got to protect your stud. I'm 99.9% sure he'll turn it around and everything will be fine, I'm just saying it's something for them to think about should he continue to struggle.

It's not like Bill hall would then be out of the lineup. They would just play the positions they were in last year (except Hall in LF not CF).


This will not happen, the defense is so much better this year.

Why are people flipping out after 1/10 of the season has elapsed? People are saying"I told you so" on their predictions, people saying he is slumping because of this and that. Just let it play out, give the guy at least 60 games before you start determining what type of season he is having. Nobody, outside of Gabe Kapler, is hitting in that line-up. Fielder, Braun, and Hart will all mash this season; and this is coming from someone who hates everthing associated with the state of Wisconsin.

Couple hits yesterday, couple more so far today, looks like he's heating up a little bit.
Nothing like a little reverse jinx huh? :-b

This may be the elixir that breaks the slump.


So far, so good....


With Braun, once again, occupying the 3B slot on my roster, he produces.

ARod might be doing Util duty for me going forward.

And the other key to the move to the OF -- in the last 3 days, he's gunned down both Adam Dunn and Albert Pujols at home plate. The power arm that lead to all the throwing errors from third to first has been perfect when you just increase the amount of ground his throws have to cover.

At any rate, Braun has looked much more comfortable at the plate the past few days, and he's just missed a couple more HR. For now I'm more concerned with Bill Hall getting his AVG above the Mendoza line than I am Braun or anybody else.
