"I'd say a pretty significant improvement."
It's an improvment that's for sure.
But would you say he's more of a pure hitter now?
I say no, Branyan is what he his a slugger who strikes out alot and is a good xtra IF and OF.
Which I like.
That said I don't expect Branyan to ever get 600 AB's in a season with the Reds.
So Bobby Bonds can relax his K record won't be taken on by Russell.
