Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez also thinks Braun will fare just fine in his move from left field to right.

"Ryan [could] play center field. He's an athlete," Gomez said. "He was an infielder [before moving to the outfield], and I don't think the move from left field to right field, he's going to feel it at all. That guy can play anywhere and not complain about it."

Brewers closer Jim Henderson was up before 5 a.m. MT Sunday to watch the gold medal game in men's hockey at the Winter Olympics. His Team Canada defeated an undermanned Sweedish team, 3-0 -- three days after the Canadian women beat the Americans for gold medals of their own. Henderson watched the first two periods of the men's final at his apartment, then raced to Maryvale Baseball Park to catch the end of the game.

"Nice way to start the day," he said. "I think the real gold medal game was the semifinal against the U.S.A. [on Friday, a 1-0 win for Canada]. Sweeden was missing some of their star players. But it was great, I take a lot of pride in it."
