Russell Branyan is a Fit

I planned on writing about why Russell Branyan makes a lot of sense for the Rays as a DH, but Jason Collette more than beat me to the punch, so enjoy his take instead:

Do not get me wrong, I love Carlos Pena to death and am extremely appreciative of what he has done for the Rays over the past four seasons but baseball is also a business. Given the fact the Rays are cutting payroll, it means they have to make even more with less and Joe Maddon is just the type of manager that can maximize the production out of a Branyan and Thames platoon situation because he understands the values of splits.
