Let's say every player in Major League Baseball was put in a free agent pool and your team is up. For one reason or another you have to pick a former Brewers player. You skim the names and discretely go back and forth through the names and you narrow it down to five names. Ryan Braun, Prince Fielder, JJ Hardy, Corey Hart, and Yovani Gallardo.
If you were a general manager who would you pick?
My pick...Simple- I have to go with Ryan Braun. His numbers speak for themselves and he strikes out a lot less than Fielder. I have a lot of faith that Gallardo (if healthy) can win a CY Young in the next few years but his health is my issue. Hardy and Hart are studs but they aren't going to put up the big numbers I am looking for.
