    No.


    6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”

    I like this signing. Hopefully Salty is the one to get traded, and not Lavarnway.

    Ok, congrats for being the only guy smart enough to know and actually want him. He was really the best kept secret in baseball, especially after his 3 hits in the WC-game and the year he has had.

    Bourjos is another possible trade target in a Salty deal.

    Perfect and realistic numbers for Lavy to put up, and expect the same numbers from Ross.

    Our total catcher production next year could be .260 BA with 20-30 HRs, which is actually better than last year (.204 BA, 27 HRs), plus Ross/Lavy will play better defense than Salty.

    Not trying to be a debbie downer but I just dont get all the love for a 35 yo catcher that has a .238 career avg. I know he had a good WC game but why are people saying he is great? What am I missing?

    He's healthy, he calls a good game and has a good glove, and his last 4 years his OPS+ is:

    133
    136
    107
    105

    Which are all well over the average MLB catcher.

    He's clearly overshadowed by the other catcher in Atlanta, which doesn't devalue Ross, just makes him harder to see.

    With Ianetta locked up for three more years, I can't see Salty going to Anaheim.

    Only if they are going to try and move Ianetta I would guess.

    Yeah, I am not replying, because you totally crushed my point...that must be it. Everyone should take notice and realize what kind of white knight you are. And yes, I am biased towards Ortiz, "legend"-bonus is something you cannot measure. But I am no more biased in favor of him than you are against him. It's pretty clear when you admitted of using a 5-year sample instead of 3-years (which would make Papi look much better). You just don't like the guy and I am not sure I want to know the concrete reasons since David is a very likable guy by the fans and frankly all around the league.

    He's a great guy, a good defender, and a pesky hitter. There are always concerns about guys as old as he is at the catcher position but, as a Braves fan, I'm sad to see him go. Any word on the money?
