The talent is there, but not necessarily the production completely.
good defense, but offensively, Heyward is the best hitter, and J. Upton and Heyward have had hot and cold seasons recently.
Kind of a wild card how good they would be next season. They have the talent to be one of the best outfields, but if they were all together last year, they would probably have been the 8th-12th best outfield.
If they make a better offer than Mike Olt, Leury Garcia, Martin Perez or Cody Buckel, plus a 4th spec then the Braves deserve him, and it will probably be an overpayment.
I just don't see how the Dbacks make out in this trade unless Simmons is included. The Rangers could offer Olt ++, and the Cubs could offer Baez ++.. Wouldn't you guys rather explore those two routes before a Teheran ++ route? Given the young pitching galore that the Dbacks have collected that is..
Olt has turned many people off after a sub-par showing in the bigs when he was called up. Teheran may have been down last yr, but he dominated AAA the yr before and has dominated every other yr in the minors...pure domination.
Lakers Off-Season Checklist:
[X] Trade Bynum for D12
[X] Get a PG(Nash!)
[X]Re-sign Hill or sign Camby
[ ]Sign Grant Hill---NOPE
[X]Sign a Back-up Guard(Barbosa, Mayo, Meeks, etc.)
[X]Re-sign Devin Ebanks
[X]Re-sign Darius Morris
It was 40 PA. Anyone turned off by that doesn't belong in the big leagues evaluating anything.
and how the hell can you reward Teheran for domination in the minors and ignore his big league failures, and ignore it with Olt?
Sounds like you might be a Braves fan.
Teheran not only has faced more big league PA than Olt has taken, and done worse. But Olt dominated this year in the minors, it's been a year for Teheran.
I'm not trying to compare the two in value. But how can you dismiss one and accept the other over extreme circumstances?
40 PA for Olt means he sucks? But Teheran is good because of work he did a year ago? And you conveniently ignore what Olt did this year? And ignore what Teheran did this year?

What I meant was it seems ARZ wants the moon, and it seems anyone is going to be overpaying if he's traded.
So Towers expects the Cubs to give up Castro, but the Braves can do a deal where Teheran is the leading piece. Towers is absolutely baffling. He should have taken Baez+ when it was offered.
