Woot.

 

Sadly, if one of TGJ or Kapler had to go, Kapler has vastly outperformed TGJ so far. Not to say he'll keep it up, but this move makes too much sense to not be made.

 

From the JS Blog:

 

Manager Ned Yost said the left-handed-hitting Branyan will start at third base Sunday against the Nationals in place of Bill Hall, who has had trouble hitting right-handed pitchers this season.

Well had this happened in the 1rst week of April I would have been bickering, hell even the first week of May. However after Ned continually runs out Gwynn to PH when it should be Dillon, I'm resigned myself to the fact that anyone on the roster is better than having TGJ at this point. Nothing against Tony, just doesn't offer much. Branyan has done so well offensively at AAA that this was a very obvious move.

 

I can accept Branyan at this time, but this doesn't mean I'll be posting sweet nothings about Ginter anytime soon... I feel dirty for posting kind words about Branyan... *sigh*

"There was a time, a time before a .500 record, when a local baseball player reigned supreme. When people believed everything they heard on TV. This was an age when only men were allowed to attend baseball games. And in Milwaukee, one baseball player was more man then the rest. His name was Russell Branyan. He was like a god walking amongst mere mortals. He had a voice that could make a wolverine purr and a swing so fine it made Griffey Jr. look like a hobo. In other words, Russell Branyan was the balls."
