    His contract is backloaded. He makes around 9 mil in 2013, 12.5 mil in '14, and 17 mil in 2015. The only reason i entertained the idea is because he offers waay more than bourn. He offers power,defense,has speed, and is 5 years younger than bourn. But it looks as if that ship has sailed too.

    Cubs fans really love this guy too. I think he just wants to win.

    I wonder if the Braves have asked Cle about Micheal Brantley?

    I don't know what other options that's out there. It would surprise me whoever we get.

    Somebody will pay him, It looked like Werth didn't have a seat at the table either but never bet against Boras.

    He's not good enough in my opinion.

    Seems everyone who comes to the Braves enjoy themselves, so I'm not surprised he stayed.

    No word on the money, so always a chance we gave more than the Cubs.

    A .348 OBP at the top of the line-up wouldn't be good enough?

    I think they want Micheal Brantley to take over for Choo in RF.

    Even if they have to clear another few million from next season's commitments to make room, they will find a way.

    Or at least, we better HOPE that wouldn't stop them.

    .348 OBP is good, but he is an average hitter, average SLG, average wOBA+, below average wRC+ and plays below average defense, he's valuable because of his years of control, but if we're getting a leadoff hitter to play LF i want more speed than Brantley.

    Braves:
    •If the Braves add an outfielder and move Martin Prado to third base, they could trade Juan Francisco.
    •The Braves have interest in Emilio Bonifacio and have learned that he could be available.
    •The Braves signed Reed Johnson to a one-year deal.
    •Atlanta exercised their option on manager Fredi Gonzalez.

    Although I think some seriously down play the talent of Juan, I would love to see Youk turn down the Yanks and them get desperate.

    FW: Hello this is FW speaking.
    Cashman: Yea this is Cashman, what do you want for Juan?
    FW: We really don't want to move him!
    Cashman: Look we'll do what it takes name your price.
    FW: ANy conversation starts with Bret Gardner, Mason Williams, and cash since you have it.
    Cashman: How much Cash?
    FW: 5 Mil.
    Cashman: Done!

    Juan goes on to hit 30hr's with that short right field!

    ^^^^^^
    Won't happen like that. But I could see them being interested in Juan if Youk turns them down. Getting Gardner? I doubt it. But getting prospect Mason Williams? I can see it, the Yanks seem to never value prospects that highly.
