Over the years

BEST: 2013 (His BEST OVERALL against any NL Central team)

WORST: 2018

Braun has been the most consistent against The Cubs, the team he also plays the best against! Look for him to get back to his Cub killing ways in 2019!

Over the years

Braun-Vs.-Pittsburgh.png

BEST: 2010 & 2011 (Braun’s MVP year)

WORST: 2018 (like we saw with The Cubs)

Braun has struggled against the Pirates current pitching staff… we will see if he can turn that around in 2019 (most of them are back!)

Over the years

Braun-Vs.-Cincinnati.png

BEST: 2010 & 2014

WORST: 2011 (his MVP year?!?)… 2012 and 2017 were also sub-par against The Reds

Braun has always played well against The Reds but if he follows the current trend an off-year is in his future (hopefully he can buck it)!

FUN STATS?

  • Braun grounds out a lot against the Pirates and Cards
    • The Cardinals have let him reach on error quite a bit
    • The Pirates like to intentionally walk him
  • No surprise…. The Cubs have beaned Braun twice as much as any other team in the division!
  • Let’s hope Braun has his best saved for 2019 (and the most talented division in baseball).
