Free Money and Sex

No one seems to be interested in my Random Braves posts so I thought a new title might draw some interest. This one is current Brave #5, if you're keeping track.

This isn't strictly a Braves card, but it's a card of a Braves player. Brooks Conrad beat out Joe Thurston this spring for the last bench spot on the roster. I don't think he actually had a card of him in a Braves uniform (Well, maybe Gwinnett Braves) so a Bowman Chrome First Year refractor will have to do.

I'm so used to the Braves bringing up home grown talent that I was surprised to find out that Brooks started off in the Astros organization and has bounced all over the place since then. He's done a pretty good job off the bench for the Bravos. Last year he got off to a great start when he was called up and was getting extra base hits right and left. Brooks knocked himself another double last night coming off the bench. After suffering through a few Chris Woodwards off the bench in recent years I must say I'm happy with Brooks at the moment.
