    They singed Cameron, which moved Billy Hall from CF to 3B, which moved Braun from 3B to LF.


    Plus, Ryan Braun was a HORRENDOUS third baseman. I think he had the most errors by a 3B in a single season in the history of Major League Baseball, and he didn't even play a full season!

    Yeah, Braun played DH in college, and I think everybody knows why.

    Last year, when the Brew were talking about bringing him up from AAA, one of my friends mentioned he went to the "Alex Rodriguez Summer Camp" for SS/3B while in high school, but it obliviously didn't help him. He's a five-tool player, but he just left that fifth tool in the shed.

    Wow, my post sounds like I hate Brawny, but he's great.

    To answer that, look at his numbers from last season. Keep in mind it wasn't for a full year. After seeing them, try justifying keeping him in AAA.

    Lest we not forget that Ryan Braun was going to play 3B this season up until the time we signed Mike Cameron to play CF and shore up or defense. Granted Braun was not a good 3B, but Hall wasn't perfect in CF either. By signing Cameron we shored up 3 defensive spots. We got lucky.

    Braun was a terrible fielding third baseman, and while he is by no means a gold glover in the outfield, he hurts them less than he would at the hot corner.

    Probably one of you will say that he was not good enough or the Brewers got a better player at third.

    I'm not really a Brewers fan, but am I right that he was moved because his terrible defense at third?

    Why is Ryan Braun not at 3B anymore?

    I am watching the Brewers @ Mets game and it caught my eye that Ryan Braun was not at third.

    Why was he moved to OF?

    Probably one of you will say that he was not good enough or the Brewers got a better player at third.

    But since when does he play as an outfielder?
