Braun, Brewers face long road ahead

What history has shown is that Fielder has been in the lineup in 721 of the 729 big-league games that Braun has played, including Fielder hitting cleanup in virtually each of the 650 games in which Braun has hit third.

They have been as productive a right-left punch as any team in baseball has employed in recent years, and as good as Braun is, it won’t be the same without his left-handed-hitting partner.
