Braun over Tulo was ridiculous, but to say Braun hit marginally better is inaccurate. Braun was a beast at the plate and he stole bases, too. This should have been counterbalanced by Tulo's Gold Glove deserving defense, though. You have to go back to Butch Hobson's rookie season to find a third baseman who played defense as poorly as Braun. You have to go back to about 1920 to find anybody worse.
I couldn't agree with you more, what did he have like 33 errors in FORTY less games, he was far and away the worst defensive 3rd basemen in ALL of baseball...for as much as people talk about how good he was offensively, not being called up till the 25th of May, why do you not hear anything about his D?
