The Wire Troll: If You’ve Got Brains, Grab Braun

July 14, 2007 | By James Morris | comment on this post
Milwaukee Brewers third baseman Ryan Braun is looking like an NL ROY candidate.
If Ryan Braun is still on your waiver wire, you better move fast.

We’re back with another installment of The Wire Troll. I’ve been a little preoccupied this week as I’ve been at the Danny Granger basketball camp. Look for a report on that experience soon, but in the meantime, let’s get to some who’s hot and why.

Ryan Braun: Over the past month, Braun has been hitting everything thrown at him, going 37-for-100 (.370 BA), scoring 22 runs, smacking seven home runs, and driving in 22 runs (not including his two-homer, four-RBI onslaught Friday night). Six steals is just icing on the cake. He is getting the starts, third base is a weak spot in many line-ups, and he is available in a few of my leagues right now.

Jonny Gomes: Now, I’ve cut him loose more than once myself. And, I am not sold on Gomes keeping up the pace he has shown over the past month. But, going 29-for-87 (.333 BA) with 14 runs, seven dingers, 18 RBI, and two steals is nothing to sneeze at. I’m not exactly sure I want to tell you to take a chance on him, but it’s hard to argue with those kind of numbers.
