When I first tell you this, you will want to vomit! I guarantee it, because that’s what happened to me when I first thought of it.
So, without further ado, I am just going to spit (vomit) it out:
- The Dodgers trade Andre Ethier, Joc Pederson, Dee Gordon, Zach Lee, Ross Stripling (I hate to give him up but they have to) and $30 million dollars to the Milwaukee Brewers for Ryan Braun. The Brewers need a lot of help and this should actually make them better without breaking the bank. The Dodgers immediately move Braun to 3B, his original position. Yes, I know he made a lot of errors at age 23, but get him an infield coach and at 30, he will at least be adequate. He needs a fresh start. The Brewers need help. This gives them a lot.
This is the lineup:
- Puig RF
- Ramirez SS
- Kemp CF
- Gonzalez 1B
- Braun 3B
- Crawford LF
- Guerrero 2B
- Ellis C
If healthy, that is the best lineup in baseball! OK, call me crazy and vomit, if you must. I know about Braun’s baggage, but he would be coming home!
For the first time in 20 years, I bought a new vehicle. Remember, it snows here.
Family time tomorrow. Looking forward to it, and Saturday at NOON when my son’s team, Cardinal Ritter goes for the State Championship in football at Lucas Oil Stadium. As a Freshman, he got in for one play in the Semi-State and was in on a tackle. Go Raiders!
By the way, Happy Thanksgiving.
