    Braves are a sleeping giant.

    I think if theres a such thing as a dark horse in the offseason. I think the braves are it. Because they have Chipper,D.Lowe off the payroll. They should have plenty to take care of Bourn and add a bat to the left field.

    Not in the season as a big spender. The Braves never spend money. So they are a dark horse as in spending money.

    If you're suggesting they're going to sign Hamilton or Swisher, I can't see that happening.

    Hamilton or Swisher? There is a big difference between those two.

    yeah, one's average in a hitter's park and one just kills it when he's not trying to quit too much stuff at once.

    I think Swisher is a very logically answer for a left fielder him or angel pagan if we lose bourn.He is one of the truest leadoff men in the league.

    Are you saying Swisher is "average"?

    His home and away stats are not that different, he even hit more HRs away.

    Yah, there is a big difference. You know what they have in common? They're not going to be on the Braves in 2013.

    I wasn't comparing the two in skill. I was talking about their likely prices. Prices the Braves most likely are not going to pay.

    Either Swisher is not going to be that much of what you're thinking or the Braves are going to be spending more than you realize...

    My guess would be he'll get 5 yrs. at about 75-85 MIL. You think the Braves will pay that and still be able to afford a center fielder and a starter?
