Braun a Bust?

David Gonos at CBS Sportsline lists Ryan Braun as a possible fantasy bust for 2008.

Third base -- Ryan Braun, MIL: That's right, I said it. The guy that ripped the cover off the ball in just five months of the majors last year is someone I think might take a small step back. Is he still a top-10 third basemen? Of course. Should he continue to be drafted with the third pick of the second round on average? That's a tough one. I'd like to point to a slow finish to the season, but he had nine homers and 29 RBI in September -- that's pretty good. What was my point again? OK, so I'm not completely sold on labeling him a bust, but still the 15th-best player in Fantasy? That's a tough sell.
Granted, he hedges quite a bit, but the point is well taken. Ryan Braun is probably not as good a player as his 2007 stats.

It's like the writer had no desire to call Braun a bust but threw it out there anyway. I will say this. Rayan Braun will not be a 3rd Base bust this year. Really going out on a limb with that one, I know.

Keep up the good work Scott.
