Ryan Braun - Manchild

Ryno fueled the Crew's 4th straight win going 4-4 with 4 steaks and 2 steals. He's batting .333. I questioned the decison to throw him in the 3 hole coming straight from AAA. Boy was I wrong. Thought they would ease him into the bigs by batting him 6th or 7th until he feels comfortable. Screw that. Slot him in front of the big fella and start mashing fastballs. Can you say "Rookie of the Year?" And to think, some people (will remain namless) thought they should keep Counsinino at 3rd "because it's working."

I'll be at Millar today taking in that awesome Brian Bullington/Dave Bush pitching duel.

Please never call him Ryno again. Thanks.

He needs a nickname of some sort and I was getting tired of "Brauny"

Sure, Braun's batting average, run production, and SLG% are all better than Counsenino's, but you are failing to consider all of the "intangibles" that Counsenino has to offer this team. Also, I don't know if you are aware but CC is from Wisconsin, and MLB rules dictate that we have a roster spot for him at 3rd base. Sarcasm=ON.
