Im shocked its for a reliever, especially since we already have top notch relievers, but its a good problem to have.. Lets see what else Wren has up his sleeve.
With Span going to the Nats I hope we land a good LF bat within the next week.
I tried to be a loyal soldier for both, especially after Lowe went undefeated (and was the only one who showed up) that one September... but I got tired of the roller coaster from him and Hanson. Let some of the younger arms get a shot. All that potential years ago, and it looked like he lost faith in the fastball and we know he never really trusted his off-speed stuff.Quote:

glad to see frank moving fast! this does set us up to get a good lf or 3b and prado can play either 3b rf lf whichever position is open
would we have rather traded for span? i think the twins would do that so it means that something else is coming soon
ss - Simmons
3b - Prado
rf - Heyward
lf - Willingham
1b - Freeman
cf - Upton
2b - Uggla
Humm, very interesting. Was this the maximum haul we would get in return for Tommy Boy?? If so then I guessed I overvalued him.
I wonder if we are going to keep this Walden kid...or are we going to go for the long ball..
Fredi still loves him some Durbin, but we'll see. You could be right.Quote:

Our off-season is complete now. he Braves claimed right-hander David Carpenter off of waivers from the Red Sox.
