Here's a nice article about Ryan Braun, the aforementioned third-sacker on the 2007 pennant-winning Milwaukee Brewers:
The Brewers believe they grabbed the most talented player available and simultaneously filled an organizational need by adding a top-notch third baseman.
"I'm thrilled," Braun said after practicing with his Miami Hurricanes teammates, who are preparing for this weekend's NCAA Super Regionals. "I obviously understand that there is a chance for me to advance through the system pretty quickly as a third baseman. I am just excited about the opportunity to work hard."
The 21-year-old can hit, he can run and he can play a number of different positions. He was at Miami on a partial academic scholarship, so he can think as well. And he is closer to the Majors than any high-ceiling high schooler the Brewers may have coveted.
"We feel we got a very good athlete, a very good player," Brewers scouting director Jack Zduriencik (zur-EN-sik) said minutes after the first round. "And he also plays a position that is a difficult position to fill at any level. If you look at our Minor League system, he fits in nicely, again, as a need, but he was selected for his ability more than anything else."
