Matz is the type of LHP that Braun used to absolutely destroy. Hopefully this provides a nice springboard off the DL for him.

Off day for Yelich or Shaw? Or Both?

I'd guess yelich sits for Braun so Jesus stays in the lineup.

I would guess Yelich sits too. Also thinking Saldino starts at 2nd for Villar. Hope so anyway since Salad Man is hot and Villar is much better as a lefty.

Jesus at 3rd, Yelich, Cain and Santana in OF. Braun at 1st until the RH relievers come in, then put Jesus back at 1st and bring Shaw back in.

Whenever a home run hitter hits one, I am not sitting him the next day. He has 2 in three games, they come in spurts, and I sure would hate to miss out on Shaw having put another out. My lineup - Yelich out for Braun to start the day, Aguilar at 1B.

I noted this yesterday, but Shaw has had only 1 off day all season and we face 2 lefties in this series...I bet Aguilar gets a start at 3rd in one of those 2 games.

Nice that we'll have Suter available to PH today...

I don't know why people are assuming Braun won't be the odd man out. He can only ride history and reputation for so long. At some point, he has to produce, because at their current production it would be silly to have Braun playing everyday while Aguilar, Thames and Santana regularly sit.

The contract given to Braun is money spent. We can't change it. Trying to force him in as much as possible to try to get our money's worth does no good.

I know this seems ridiculous to you, but is there any way you could consider using punctuation and caps on your posts?

I think a few of us would appreciate it.

Because up until this point, there has been no indication that he will be. Maybe that will change but as of right now, it is pure speculation that he will sit for others to play.

It will all be decided on the field though. Either Braun will start to hit or he won't and then he probably will see a reduced role. Same with Aguilar. Either he will continue to hit, or he won't, and then he will see a reduced role. As with Thames when he returns. Let's not pretend like he's some sort of a given to produce. We've seen his dry spells a year ago and there was a reason he had to jettison to Korea in the first place. These things will play themselves out and the Brewers will hopefully be in a better place for it as they have plenty of guys who can/should perform.

This isn't a force. We are facing a lefty. Yelich hasn't been particularly effective against them yet this year. Given that and the fact that sometimes Braun comes off the DL very hot, it is worth a start tonight. I don't think anybody sees Braun coming back and starting 5 out of 6 games.

Haikus don't require punctuation.

I see Braun starting 4-5 of 6 pretty regularly, at least until Thames comes back...that's when it will truly get interesting. If Braun scuffles off the DL, he might lose some playing time. But as another poster noted...sometimes he comes off the DL hitting really well. Theoretically, he should be feeling much better now than he did 10 days ago...and I still believe Braun to be a very good hitter when he's right. I hope he watched some film and studied his at bats a bit, and heads to the plate with a better game plan than he did the first 2 months. His biggest problem was plate discipline/pitch selection these first 2 months. He still has the sweetest swing of anybody on the team, a bit of bad luck and poor plate discipline have been his downfall.

i agree. Braun should be on the bench if he hits like his last stretch
It's a great problem to have bc when someone is slumping, plug in the other guy
the obvious one is arcia, he should be on the bench 2-3 days a week until he hits better
and he is the perfect defensive replacement late in the game

Thank you. You probably don't care but I stop reading posts if I can't easily comprehend the first line. You might be the smartest person on BF.net and have some amazing insights but I'll probably never know.
