When Braun last played the infield, he was the literal worst third baseman in baseball history.

Just playing it up for the fans, or are the Brewers still looking to make another splash?
It’s OK about the prospect thing. I still think the Cubs’ farm system will be solid by the end of this year. Also: a player has used the S word.
The Cubs are still believed to be the frontrunner for Darvish, but things are still held up.
MLB is not really buying grievances against the Marlins and Pirates. Also: Hawk is looking forward to kicking the Cubs’ butts, and I think Eloy is, too.
More ugliness by the hour. Also: is it correct to say Brewers and Cardinals have improved more than the Cubs? Sure. But is it fair?
The free agent freeze-out continues, but the trade market has been fairly impactful this year.
I dread the coming labor fight. Also: the Cubs are excited about change, Keith Law may soon be excited about Jose Albertos, and more.
Things are not suddenly looking better after last night.
Add All The Outfielders: Brewers Sign Lorenzo Cain Right After Trading for Christian Yelich (UPDATE: Cubs Were In?)
Whoa. Cain gets five years and $80 million from the Brewers.
Are we irked, troubled, or TERRIFIED after the Brewers trade tonight?
Gulp. Brewers are about to get much better.
It doesn’t sound like the Cubs are in on Lynn, and the Mets are bringing back Jose Reyes.
Signings on the way? Or simple social media mistake?
I have trouble seeing the Cubs as a four-year offer, so you have to assume he’s going elsewhere.
And Kerry Wood got two votes, so it’s party time!
The Phillies make sense for plenty of reasons, but they also don’t seem to be all that eager to go where the market will need them to go.
The Brewers could have a line on Christian Yelich, but apparently they don’t want to part with their top prospect to make it happen.
Finding some kind of compromise on this topic could go a long way toward resolving *some* of the bad blood that seems to be developing.
Maybe probably finally? But Morosi specifically mentions … the Twins.
The arguments. They loom. But on the brighter side, a Baby Baez!
So much going on around the league today, including a couple Cardinals who are getting some love. *kicks dirt*
Adding Yelich would be a huge and immediate boon to the Brewers in the NL Central.
But the question is, would the Cubs go that far?
If signing Darvish costs more than twice Alex Cobb, which is the better deal for the Cubs? That, and so much more from the rumor mill.
A longtime Pirate wishes his city the best, and wonders what the future holds. Also: a lot of players really don’t like the pitch clock.
