One thing I'll say about Braun, when he's playing he is about a 85/25/85/20/.280 player. Thats 3rd round value! And I'm using this season and past 3 years to back that up so there is plenty of data.

 

Could be a huge stud if he gets regular PT ur not finding 3rd round value that easy everywhere

I agree, he is underrated. Speed is such a scarce commodity and he still offers something there. The PT situation and Braun's propensity to get hurt are the obvious concerns but he is a bad guy to move. Those two concerns are palpable to all and you'll never get in return what Braun has the potential to be.

But PT concerns and injury concerns can go away. The fact he has 3rd round talent when he plays vs. L/R is a big step to being 3rd round value overall. For most players who have "3rd round potential", its playing well enough thats the issue. Braun is a lot closer than people think.

Being activated tomorrow against Kershaw. I think I'll keep my fingers crossed that he has some life in that bat and legs and give him a week or two before cutting bait in 10/12 teamers. Hold anything 14 team plus - especially categories leagues

He has looked good the last 7-10 days.  Maybe primed for a big finish?  Milwaukee lineup is very deep

He's still very solid, and even though MIL is deep offensively he's going to play most days this late in the season (and postseason hopes alive) as long as he's healthy.

Hits 2 dingers yesterday, think to myself....I should grab him off the wire....then think, nah he'll be hurt soon.

Ryan Braun exited Wednesday's game against the Cubs with tightness in his rib cage.

Braun was pinch hit for in the top of the fifth inning because of the rib injury. He'll likely undergo testing, and we should have a further update on his status after the completion of Wednesday's game.

Going off the roids really has been noticable with this guy.

And what is really sad is he's still pretty damn good. No doubt he's made of paper and has it made in the shade.
