Phillies acquire IF/OF Russell Branyan

The Phils done went and got themselves a major league bombardier, picking up Russell Branyan from the Indians for cash considerations.

Kind of a peculiar move, and in a city that heaps endless heaps of derision on Pat Burrell, this guy is going to be pretty unpopular.

Still, in that ballpark, he's going to crank some out by accident.  Also, it's pretty sweet to have four third basemen now.
