Ryan Braun Puts Down More Roots in LA

Interesting find in the Real Estate section, where a tidbit appeared about Ryan Braun putting down some roots--and coin--to buy a house in Malibu:

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan J. Braun has purchased a foreclosed home in Malibu for $4.85 million.

The five-bedroom, seven-bathroom gated Mediterranean has ocean views and sits on more than an acre with a swimming pool, spa and built-in barbecue. The interiors include three fireplaces and travertine and hardwood flooring. There is a two-bedroom, one-bathroom guesthouse and a movie theater.

Since selling for $4.2 million in 2004, the property had been through a series of owners and transfers before ending up as bank-owned. It was listed at a high of $8.9 million in 2007 and had been marketed at $5,299,900 since the fall.

Braun, 25, started in the majors in 2007 with Brewers. He took the National League Rookie of the Year title and four other rookie awards. He grew up in Granada Hills.

Hmm. The Dodgers sure like to buy outfielders...sure, Braun's signed through 2015, but still...

Braun - The Hebrew Hammer! He's a local kid and would be a great post-Manny left fielder. Let's bring Chase Utley (Pasadena, UCLA) home too!

Ryan Braun is my favorite non-Dodger player.

Andrew Lambo, Scott Elbert, Blake DeWitt and Ramon Troncoso. No salary relief needed at all.

Deal Dougie?
