Thanks for adding the additional info on Ryan Braun's plate appearances! I'm guessing he won't make it to 502: looks like he's in the four slot for good, looks like they'll take him out of the games early when they have a lead, and maybe they'll give him more days off if/when they fall out of the race. But he will be fun to watch in a Brewers uniform, for many years, I hope.

No problem. Enough people were getting referred here from Brew Crew Ball with the implication I had info on how likely he was to reach 502 that I figured I should put it up. I tend to doubt he'll get there as well.
