Ryan Braun – Daario Naharis

The season 4-6 version of Daario Naharis actually looks quite a lot like 2011 Ryan Braun. The flow, the beard, and both were very good at their jobs. Daario was good at killing enemy soldiers, and Ryan Braun was good at killing enemy pitching.

Both also captured the love and adoration of their intended audience. For Daario, that was Daenarys Targaryen. For Braun, that was the Milwaukee Brewers fanbase.

And then both lost that intended audience, to the exact same thing.

Christian Yelich – Jon Snow

The most popular, most well-liked character on the show is also the most popular, most well-liked player on the Brewers. They’re both leaders, they’re both extremely good at what they do, and both have a lot of people depending on them.

Sure, Yelich may not have the flow or the beard that Jon Snow has, but both love where they are and have made their home in the north.

Brewers fans left their love and adoration that they once had for Ryan Braun and now give all that attention and love to Yelich. Similarly, Daenarys left the love she had for Daario in Meereen and now has love for Jon Snow. That’s right, this metaphor is layered.

Lorenzo Cain – Gendry

Both Lorenzo Cain and Gendry were important pieces early on. Then Lorenzo Cain was traded to Kansas City for Zack Greinke. Gendry, was traded to the red woman Melisandre and Stannis Baratheon for a bag of gold.

Gendry wasn’t seen again for several seasons. Lorenzo Cain, also wasn’t seen again for several seasons. Now both are back and are more important to the story now than ever.

Cain is also a speedster, known for his running ability. Gendry is quite fast as well, as we saw on display during Season 7.
