It's easy to understand the outrage in Milwaukee these days, but getting rid of Braun simply doesn't make any sense from a business or baseball perspective.
No matter what you think of Braun, he is still a star talent, and I know that pretty much every general manager views him that way. He's one of the best all-around players in the game, and with all due respect to Carlos Gomez and Jean Segura, he is the team's most valuable asset.
