The Brewers flip-flop Braun and Fielder

May 20, 2010, 5:15 PM EDT

Prince Fielder headshot.jpgHey, the Cardinals are doing it with Pujols, why shouldn’t the Brewers do it with Braun?  Move him to the cleanup spot, that is, with Prince Fielder going to the three-hole for the first time since 2008. Hey! They won the division in 2008! This can’t NOT work!

The real question is not whether Fielder can hit third and Braun can hit cleanup, though.  It’s whether either of them can pitch. Because that’s the real concern, my Wisconsin friends.  They’re second in the NL in runs per game. They’re third worst in runs allowed.

But hey, if it gives people something to talk about, mazel tov.

    Correction: the Brew Crew won the Wild Card in 2008, not the division.

    Agreed. Maybe they should be working on flipping people around on the terrible pitching staff rather than tinkering with one of the best offenses in the game.
    But of course that would make sense and it appears that the Brewers are not too into that this season.
