You're already that, but is this the Russell Branyan that at age 33 has hit over 20 HR's exactly once either because he couldn't lock up a position or he was injured? The same guy that was released by the Brewers and Padres over the last few years? The same career platoon player we were able to enjoy as a Red? If anybody comes along in Seattle with anything resembling a pulse and under age 25 Branyan shouldn't be taking AB's away from them. If I remember correctly didn't Corey Patterson display some early power last year?
More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.
