Eras

Just a quick thought on Ryan Braun's contract extension.  There are some decisions that a team makes that directly affect the quality of the team on the field and other decisions that affect the quality of the team as a business entity.  Trading for Zack Grienke is an example the former.  The building of Miller Park is an example of the later.  Extending Ryan Braun's contract through most of the rest of his career is much more an example of the later.

There have been basically three 'eras' in Milwaukee Brewers history:  the pre-Robin Yount era, the Robin Yount era, and the post-Robin Yount era.  Now, there may be a fourth.  It's hard to argue with that line of thinking.
