Ryan Braun Becomes 30-30 Player, Way Hotter Now
We've always found Ryan Braun rather attractive. In fact, we included him in our Real Top 10 Hottest Baseball Players list from 2009... we're gonna have to update that soon.
But in all honesty, a smokin' hot bat is always sexier than a smokin' hot body. Take Tony Gwynn, for example. Eight National League batting titles makes for a dead sexy bat.
Braun became only the second player in Milwaukee Brewers history to hit 30 home runs and steal 30 bases in a single season Friday night during his team's 6-3 win over Cincinnati, which also mathematically eliminated the Reds from playoff contention. Double whammy.
The left fielder went yard twice, first off Bronson Arroyo (who will always have a future as a rock star) before nailing his 30th longball of the season off reliever Jeremy Horst. Braun, who also has 31 steals, joins Tommy Harper as the franchise's only two 30-30 players. He's batting an impressive .330 heading into Saturday's game, and has compiled 99 RBI and 100 runs so far this season.
Brauny had this to say about his accomplishment:
"I’m really proud... There’s a reason it’s only been done one other time in franchise history. It’s a hard thing to do."
