I think this is the first time in his career hell be getting full at bats. So if he gets around 600 Ab's we could be looking at .250 35 hrs?

This is not the first time in his career he has gotten full time ABs, every time he has been given a full-time job even a platoon style one he has gotten hurt. Ride him while you can but don't plan on him being around all year.

i know he won't keep this production up, but he should still hit 30 hrs. My problem is my league. The other managers WILL NOT TRADE ANYONE!!! They are a bunch of stiffs. Unless its a 4 for 4 player trade with your two best players it won't happen. So basically I have no chance of getting anything for branyan at any point. Oh well...reep the benefits for now.

I talk about Branyan being as something like a Richie Sexson type: good power, but figures to be an average slayer.

I talk about McPherson being the Branyan type. Somebody that is never quite good enough to hold a starting spot (until now at least).

What the hell is going on here?

It's mid-June, he's on pace for 35+ homers and he's hitting .317? I do not get it.

Off of the top of my head, I can't think of another player that has me scratching my head more than Branyan...
