I want to start out by saying that I was in favor of bringing up Russell Branyan from Nashville to bolster the flaying Brewer offence - although my idea was to have him replace Weeks with Hall or Dillion taking over at second base.
He sure is off to a great start. In limited action. BA, OBP, and SLG all exceed his lifetime figures. His SO and BB %'s are also up. What I can't understand is this. In 10 prior seasons, the pitchers always found his weaknesses everey time he played. Last year he could not hit .200 and had an OPS+ under 100 one of the few times in his career (lifetime 109). How can pitchers forget how to pitch him?
