What about the idea of signing Stephen Drew to play 3rd, and then leaving Prado out in LF. Prado is a more than capable fielder out there and Drew would be a relatively cheap option at third with a decent bat and very good glove. We could splurge on CF if we went that route.
This is a message board. If you don't want him to quote you, you have two options. Ignore him, or don't post.
That being said. I agree with the pass on Drew. Left handed, better outfielders available with Prado able to play third.
no, it's not just you because i've been anti-swisher since his name first came up.
Even with that being said, meesage boards, blogs, or anything else, have to have some kind of respect and rules. If a person has no interest in debating you and ask to be left alone and ignores you for the better part of the year, you should at some point grant those wishes. That's just a lack of respect for yourself and all others.
Without that you have the 3 and 4 day pissing contest that looses all content of what the original post was about, that he seems to enjoy. It's needless and pointless. If you want to ramble your beliefs about what the Braves should or shouldn't do, do so. However do it without including and missrepresenting my post.
Christian Bethancourt added to our 40-man. Looks like we'll get a chance to look at him for a bit in season unless he completely blows it in Spring Training.
Swisher career numbers:
13.3 BB% 21.3 K% .211 ISO .256 AVG .362 OBP .359 wOBA 120 wRC+
BJ Upton career numbers:
10.6 BB% 25.1 K% .167 ISO .255 AVG .336 OBP .333 wOBA 107 wRC+
Both of those players are very good defensively, and Upton its a much better baserunner. Taking those two things in mind Upton produce 0.00568 WAR per PA while Swisher produce 0.00524 per PA. Statistically those player are similar, i'd rather have Upton because he is younger and can play CF but if we get a good CF, Swisher would probably give us the same amount of value for the first 2-3 years of the contract then he probably going to decline while Upton will be in his prime.
Sweet, we at least looked into Fowler! BTW, I think we'll get Upton this week. Maybe then we can go get Upton 2??
