If the Braves signed Cameron who would play CF?

Can DOB answer a question from DOB? Would the universe explode?
November 22nd, 200912:20 am
Better yet, if DOB answered a question from DOB in the middle of a forest, would people still want to trade for Corey Hart?

DOB can’t even get a str8 answer from Wren anymore, you people follow this mindless turd like a blind sheep to slaughter, DOB i would very much like to bury my right foot in your a s s , I think you are one smart@ssed $onofabitch, and you need a good ole fashioned Tim Hudson @ss wg\huppin you ignorat inbred B@St@rd!

Well stated Android. And by “well stated”, I should say…. You’re and idiot.
DOB got plenty of straight answers from Wren last year. As a fan of the Braves making moves under the radar, I’d just as soon Wren bullsh!t DOB until after the moves were made.

Brian: Vazquez loves playing for the Braves. So I don’t expect extending his contract to be a problem. However, Vazquez will likely cost a bit more than Hudson. Also, if the Braves can move Lowe and his contract, then the rest should fall into place too.
November 22nd, 20092:22 am
Here’s a classic.
November 22nd, 20092:31 am
I’m hopeful that Lowe and his contract can be moved. If we can move Lowe and say 33-36 million of it, then that should help enough too.
It would be a bonus to get more in return to go along with dumping the 45 million (or 33-36 million of it).
November 22nd, 20092:46 am
We saw Patterson Hood solo acoustic (well, him and a good keyboard player) tonight at Andrews Upstairs. Patterson was grea, but venue is annoying, bunch of 20-somethings talking throughout the show, thought plenty were big fans who knew all the lyrics, etc. That’s just the kind of room it is — more Buckhead bar than a listening venue. It’s the antithesis of, say, Eddie’s Attic. But hey, like I said, Patterson was great….
Rob (from SC), I don’t think DeRosa’s release after the knee injury will have any bearing whatsoever on his current/future dealings with the Braves. I’ve never heard from anyone that he spoke privately or publicly about harboring any ill will about how that went down.
Having said that, I’m not sure of the Braves’ level of interest. I get the impression that this might have been a case of the team telling his agent that they like DeRo and what he brings to a club, etc., but more just a statement, part of a casual conversation, more than them saying they were really interested in bringing him back to Atlanta.
I could be wrong, but that’s impression I get. And that kind of thing, by the way, goes on all the time. An agent might say all these teams have interest in his player, but “interest” can mean so many different things, from actively pursuing the guy hard, to just making a comment about how the guy is a good player and it’d be good to have him if only there were a fit, etc.
–Trade Javier Vazquez +1 for BJ Upton
–Trade Derek Lowe for anything helpful.
–Sign FA starting pitcher whose waay cheaper. (Wolf, Bedard…)
–Sign Adam LaRoche to a three year deal.
November 22nd, 20092:47 am
Android: Thank you. That was hilarious.
November 22nd, 20093:32 am
Ill add one more…
–Trade for Dan Uggla.
November 22nd, 20093:34 am
You know what they say about 20 somethings DOB? We keep getting older…..
Oh wait. That’s what they say about jailbait. Never mind.

there it is. If you want real in-depth info though, you gotta pony up bucks. This site shows the voting at different positions though.
November 22nd, 20095:25 am
BTW it looks like Adam was about 14th or 15th, not GG by any means but certainly not at the bottom of the pile like some metrics show.
November 22nd, 20095:44 am
you might even say average . couldn’t pass that one up Dave
November 22nd, 20097:09 am
Jurrjens for Ryan Braun
Escobar for youkilis
Hell to the no.
Jurrjens for Ethier or Kemp
Jurrjens for Adrian Gonzalez
Definitly. But it won’t happen. A – Gon is going to be Tex 2.0
Jurrjens for Josh Johnson
How does this improve our team? It actually hinders our team…
trading for Cody Ross (LF and backup CF)
…As long as it ain’t Jurrjens, Heyward, Hanson, Schaffer or Escobar, sure.
November 22nd, 20097:22 am
Hell to the no. JJ
I’d make that trade
November 22nd, 20097:39 am
Well stated Android. And by “well stated”, I should say…. You’re and idiot.
It’s “your.” You know, typically you’re supposed to make fun of typos when they’re spelled wrong and hilarious. Not in this case.
November 22nd, 20099:35 am
actually, Android, the use of “you’re” is correct in this case…as in “you are an idiot”. “your” is possessive.
i’m not an english teacher but correcting someone’s harsh correction of someone else is too good to pass up.
November 22nd, 20099:39 am
wide right, i think Jeff D meant that the famously incorrect saying of “your and idiot” was in fact incorrect since he used “you’re”.
–wow, its a slow night on the ole blog.

November 22nd, 200910:31 am
Gonzo – I would offer him arbitration as it is clear he is going to get mucho spondoolies as a FA
Then we can trade his butt or get at least some value for him
November 22nd, 200910:32 am
Of course YOU would…
November 22nd, 200910:34 am
Such a CRIME SHAME…
November 22nd, 200910:35 am
How would trading Escobar for Youkilis be strengthening your team?
November 22nd, 200910:47 am
Of course it’s YOUR. Nothing else makes since.
November 22nd, 200910:53 am
Bill from Ohio n n(your 9:13pm) Soooo on the money! This has been pointed out some time before but pretty much ignored. What advantage DO we get if we sign a “big bat” for the outfield but let Laroche go?! If we still had Kotchman or some other light hitter and saw a chance to get Adam with what is out there…….we would jump all over that! Plus….if he signs a two year deal with us for say 17-18 he would still be young enough get a another really big (say 3-4 year) contract when we are through with each other. Its a win-win situation for both him and the Braves.
November 22nd, 200910:55 am
Yur knot frum arownd hear are yu?
November 22nd, 200911:15 am
Offer arbitration to all three potential free agents: Gonzo, Soriano and LaRoche. It’s not much of a roll of the dice. Gonzo and Soriano are going to get multiyear offers. It would be a shocker if either one turned down the opportunity for an extended contract.
Both have had arm troubles. I doubt that either takes chances with one-year deals.
LaRoche may actually accept arbitration, if he and his agent can’t land a good multiyear contract. Is that so bad for the 2010 Braves?
November 22nd, 200911:41 am
Would any of you want Wagner at a 2 year deal? I wonder if adding an extra year to his contract would make a deal a lot quicker. Kimbrel seems to have some serious control issues & even though Wagner is up there in age he’s coming off a surgery that has guys throwing like they were in their prime when they get back. I think he’d be a good one to have, no question.
November 22nd, 200911:54 am
“Escobar for youkilis….I’d make that trade.” nolie
In a heartbeat, without thinking twice. Dude could play 1B until Freeman is ready, and move over to 3B when Chipper is done. Signed through 2012 (2013 club option), for around 11.5 per year averaged out.
Right handed, and can bat cleanup. Not only would I make that trade, he’s the guy I’d go after if I could choose any corner infielder making around that salary. Dude’s a gamer.
November 22nd, 200911:59 am
“How would trading Escobar for Youkilis be strengthening your team?” TnBrian
Until Escobar is capable, and Bobby is willing to bat him cleanup, if you can’t grasp how have a guy that’s going to hit around .300, crack about 30 HR and have an OPS around .950 in the cleanup spot, (allowing Mac to bat 5th and allow Bobby to split up the LH-ness of the lineup), then I’m not sure how to explain it to you. Because you’re just not going to get it.
Escobar has the capability to raise his game, and imo he is already one of the best defensive SS in baseball. But Youk is a leader, and would be a great guy to have once Chipper is gone. He is in the same mold of oldschool baseball players just like Mac (and Chipper), and you can never have too many of those guys.
Escobar is a hot-shot who might live up to his potential as he hits his prime. Youk is IN his prime and is exactly what this team needs.
November 22nd, 200912:00 pm
November 22nd, 200912:03 pm
SS has been a sore spot for them for quite a while. Depending on what either team does in the meantime, I can see that conversation happening even if the deal never does.
TnBrian, you’re questioning how adding Youk to the team by trading Escobar “helps” the team, yet you’re suggesting offering a two year deal to Wagner? LOL. Not trying to be an ass Brian, but that’s funny to me.
I’m OK with Wagner. I think he’ll be as good as Gonzo if healthy, and probably be cheaper (unless every other team looking for LH back of the bullpen guys thinks the same thing). But to give him two years? I don’t know man, seems risky.
November 22nd, 200912:05 pm
Nathan-Only problem is that were you to have Youk succeed Chipper, he would need to be extended first, since Chipper is already signed longer than Youk. I’m betting Chipper’s numbers go back to a normal (for him) level this year and there won’t be an early retirement before the New Extension he signed plays out.
That being said-living the in Red Sox Nation, I get to see Youklis play a good deal and he IS that good. I’d hate to lose Yunel, but Youk would be worth it. THAT being said-the deal won’t ever happen. Boston ain’t giving Youk up. It wouldn’t be an equitable deal for them, especially when they can go buy a shortstop without giving up that kind of talent.
November 22nd, 200912:06 pm
Escobar + LaRoche/Freeman/Whoever > Youk + Diory/Infante
November 22nd, 200912:09 pm
No way Boston gives up Youk, he is a perennial top 10 in the mvp and is cheap
who do they get in the market tnear that price o replace Youk when their other 3b Lowell is walking wounded
November 22nd, 200912:11 pm
Jeff R, totally agree. Worst case scenario, if Soriano accepts. Trade him. Or keep him. Same with Gonzo.
With Hudson, Hanson, KK and JJJ on board, one could make an argument that if all three (Soriano, Gonzo, LaRoche), accepted arbitration, the team might be better served trading BOTH Lowe and Vazquez, and finding a cheaper 5th starter option (Randy Wolf), and keeping all three of Soriano, Gonzo and LaRoche.
It might prove harder to find 2 bullpen guys as solid as them, and a 1B, than it would be to round out the rotation with a solid veteran arm.
Would are rotation be as solid without Vazquez in it? Hell no. But I’m afraid if Wren spends all his money on the rotation, and goes to the bargain bin for the bullpen (I think however it ends up we’ll have a legit 1B come spring training), we might be in for a long year of bullpen misery.
Losing both Soriano and Gonzo, and breaking up the 3-headed monster (with Moylan added in), scares me a lot more than losing Vazquez. Vaquez pitched in 34 games last year. The Braves pitched a whopping 3 CG’s last year. Meaning the bullpen was used in 159 games. Soriano pitched in 77 games. Gonzo 80.
Again. Replacing Vazquez would be easier (and likely cheaper) than replacing two strong bullpen arms.
I’ll assume Wren has a plan. LOL.
November 22nd, 200912:13 pm
Is there any reason why Sheffield would like to play here again? Someone please enlighten me? I feel like that would be re-signing Julio Franco all those years
November 22nd, 200912:15 pm
“Escobar + LaRoche/Freeman/Whoever > Youk + Diory/Infante” Jurrjens4NLCY
Agreed. But do you REALLY think Wren would go into next season with Diory or Infante as the starting SS?
November 22nd, 200912:19 pm
McFann: I thought you might get a kick out of the Twitter post that the Blue Jays’ MLB.com writer posted this morning:
“At 3:53 a.m., my wife says “I just had the strangest dream about Shane Victorino.” She’s so weird.”
I agree with N8. They won’t let Hanson pitch 200 innings. At best, you’ll get 160 out of Kawakami. The Braves are going to need a good bullpen. I believe replacing (or resigning) Soriano and Gonzo should be priority #1.
I think its sad that the idea of Smoltz coming back to close is not even being discussed as a possibility. He seems like the answer to me…but if that idea is so easily dismissed it means that bridge was burned worse than i thought.
Lew, you’re right. Was thinking Chipper was signed through 2011 with a 2012 option. But it’s the same length.
You’re right on two other points as well. Youk is that good, and Boston isn’t getting rid of him for “only” Yunel in a trade. No way.
November 22nd, 200912:21 pm
Agreed. But do you REALLY think Wren would go into next season with Diory or Infante as the starting SS?
True, but now your spending more money, probably more than it would cost to resign LaRoche given the very dry SS trade/free agent market.
P. W. Hjort
November 22nd, 200912:24 pm
They won’t let Hanson pitch 200 innings
Why not? He pitched 194 innings last year.
November 22nd, 200912:26 pm
Richie-Were Shef to come in and provide what Julio did (excepting the final 15 games he played in Atlanta), Shef would be a bargain personified. I don’t know where you get any idea that Julio, at around a Mil per year was a bad deal for the Braves.
Dude played between 103 and 125 games for five seasons in ATL. He hit .300, .284, .294, .309 and .275. His OBP were .376, .357, .372, .378 and .348. His OPS were .821, .739, .824, .878 and .799. Please explain to me how you figure this was a bad move? If we could get Shef (not saying we should) and he hit .290, .365, 810, I’d consider that one of the best moves Wren made.
November 22nd, 200912:31 pm
Sheff told Boston Globe’s Nick Cafardo that he’d love to play for Atlanta or his hometown Tampa Rays.
Then again, Sheff made it clear in this column that he’d just like to play, period. He says he’s on an unprecedented offseason regime and determined to prove people wrong at 41, etc. (Not to dismiss his comments at all, but I’ve personally heard him say similar stuff in at least three previous offseasons. Oh, and he says that after talking to his family, they want him to keep playing and get the 300-plus hits he needs for 3,000. This from a guy who told me he was strongly considering retiring — more than a decade ago, when he was playing for the Marlins and I was covering that team.)
God bless him. I’ve always thought Sheff was a good dude, despite a few incidents when he’s said some inflammatory, me-first stuff, and early in his career did some questionable things. He’s funny, definitely always interesting to talk to, and a likely Hall-of-Famer, in my view. And he showed last year he can still hit and even play a little OF. There was a time when his bat speed was peerless. His confidence and swagger, too.
The latter part hasn’t changed, actually.
Here’s Cafardo’s column: http://www.boston.com/sports/baseball/articles/2009/11/22/ever_confident_sheffield_game_for_a_comeback/?page=full
November 22nd, 200912:39 pm
DOB…a straight-up trade of Lowe for Milton Bradley seems to make sense to me. Can you think of any reason this wouldn’t work? It gets Lowe out of here, meets a need for power outfielder, and Bradley should excel under Cox.
November 22nd, 200912:43 pm
Andy Pettitte, Rich Harden and Ben “DL” Sheets. That’s the trio of pitchers that FoxSports’s Jon Morosi rates as the best three free-agent pitchers not named Lackey.
And some of you wonder how the Braves believe they’ll be able to trade Lowe?
November 22nd, 200912:44 pm
Hanson pitched 127 innings. Remember at the end of the season they wouldnt even let him close a complete game shutout (and they lost, incidentally). All I’m saying is when you got three pitchers you want to be careful with (Hanson, Kawakami, and arguably Hudson) the bullpen becomes even more important.
I know Freddie Freeman is not ready to be an everyday 1B…but is he ready to be a platoon player with Sheffield at 1B? Probably not…just an idea.
Too funny, thanks!
Haha…she can’t be all that weird if she thinks a dream about Shane Victorino is strange.
Would the Braves consider bringing in Sheff as a platoon partner/mentor for Heyward?
November 22nd, 200912:46 pm
SteveP: I don’t think Braves want to bring Bradley’s unique brand of baggage into their clubhouse, particularly not in Cox’s farewell season. If I hear something that leads me to believe otherwise, I’ll certainly write it.
November 22nd, 200912:48 pm
Richie, I’d tell you one big reason why Sheff would like to play here again in 2010, but it would get some of our Cox-obsessives upset. And we don’t want to do that on a Sunday.
Steve from OH
November 22nd, 200912:49 pm
Hanson pitched 127 innings.
Are the Atlanta Braves the only team Hanson played for in 2009?
November 22nd, 200912:50 pm
Hanson pitched 127 innings
He pitched 127 and 2/3 major league innings. Add 66 and 1/3 minor league innings and you get 194. Minor league innings are innings, too.
November 22nd, 200912:51 pm
I rather have Sheffield for 1-2 million over Ryan Church for 3-4 mill….
November 22nd, 200912:53 pm
Sheffield a “mentor” for Heyward? Jeez…I love Sheff for the same reasons DOB stated. But he wouldnt be my first choice as a mentor for the kid.
steveP-A reason it won’t work? Your talking about Meltdown Bradley and the Braves. Better question might be “Why would you think they’d even consider doing a deal for Meltdown”?
November 22nd, 20091:00 pm
a 3 way between rangers or rays might work though dealing lowe to the cubs bradley to the rays or rangers and getting a right handed bat back
November 22nd, 20091:01 pm
Here’s our Sunday Soul selection, on a rainy day perfect for the occasion here in Atlanta. It’s the incredible Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, on the Daptone Records label: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ouI5KcyHfE
(By the way, for those not familiar with Sharon Jones — that song and video came out two years ago, not 40. So much for “they don’t make ‘em like they used to….”)
November 22nd, 20091:03 pm
Bringing Bradley in is too risky. Whats the Chances he comes in and acts like a normal player and performs like him normal self and stays healthy. Prolly ZERO , he will perform but he’ll ring problems and get hurt most likley no thank you.
November 22nd, 20091:05 pm
Ahh…It’s Sunday, I have hot water again, and my 49ers are on…all is right in the world
November 22nd, 20091:07 pm
Of course YOU would JJ
not sure what that is supposed to mean, but so would anybody with half a brain. Esco is great, Youk is
greater. Esco will never hit for he power that Youk already does.
November 22nd, 20091:12 pm
Don’t know if it’s been mentioned here, but St. Pete Times had this note today: According to an industry source, the Rangers and White Sox have shown interest in CF B.J. Upton, and the Mets and Braves have inquired about All-Star LF Carl Crawford. The Rays have said they’re interested in discussing a long-term deal with Crawford, who is eligible to be a free agent after the 2010 season.
Phish actually featured Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings at their Halloween show this year. Phish always covers an album for Halloween, their “musical costume”. Past Halloweens have seen them cover The White Album, Remain in Light, Quadrophenia, and Loaded. This year they busted out the behemoth Exile on Main St. with Sharon and her crew singing and playing horns.
That Sheff from ‘02-’03 would be a nice fit for the 2010 Braves, wouldn’t it? Man’s way past his prime & is a DL machine now.
N8, to resign Gonzalez they’d need to give him a multi-year contract, probably 3/4 years now that he’s with Boras & don’t tell me he’s less of an injury risk or better than Wagner. It’s all risky with relievers, so I’d just go with experience opposed to Mr.Erratic Gonzo.
November 22nd, 20091:15 pm
yeah…didnt think of minor league stats…or AFL…
Rays wouldn’t take anything less than one year of Vazquez for one year of Crawford, right? That’s tempting, even as much as I love Javy, Crawford is a speed demon that this team hasn’t had for years. Though maybe Atlanta can work on an extension with Crawford to keep him around for a few years.
November 22nd, 20091:28 pm
That could work. But only if we resign him long term
November 22nd, 20091:29 pm
DOB–are you a fan of Suicide Kings? Finally got around to seeing that flick last night (not a lot of time for movie-watching or even blog-following these days, you know) and thought it was pretty solid. Wondered what you thought of it…
Either way, Christopher Walken is awesome…
November 22nd, 20091:32 pm
as a weezer fan, its tough to see rivers cuomo backing up taylor swift for some rock band video game commercial
November 22nd, 20091:33 pm
VaBraveFan, yep. If that all were to happen I’d think Schafer or McLouth would be trade bait if not sometime next year than next offseason. It all makes a lot of sense because Javy would waive his no-trade clause for Tampa, I guess, & like I said, Crawford would change the whole complection of our lineup with his speed. Nate just seems more like a #6/7 hitter anyways, or maybe even hitting 2nd would work.
November 22nd, 20091:34 pm
“N8, to resign Gonzalez they’d need to give him a multi-year contract, probably 3/4 years now that he’s with Boras & don’t tell me he’s less of an injury risk or better than Wagner.” TnBrian
You missed the point of my post. My point was that ALL THREE (LaRoche, Gonzalez and Soriano) should be offered arbitration. My point was if the worst thing that would happen is that they would all three accept, we’d be in OK shape and Wren could still make moves to make the team strong.
I wasn’t stating that Wren should sign all three of them.
November 22nd, 20091:35 pm
Steve, Suicide Kings is one of my favorites. Every character in that show is fantastic. Just a great show imo.
November 22nd, 20091:37 pm
TnBrian: My guess is Rays try hard to re-sign Crawford, not trade him. But if they do trade him, I’d think they would look for top, affordable young talent in return, rather than eight-figure ($11.5 million) veteran pitcher with a contract expiring a year from now.
November 22nd, 20091:43 pm
8.Diaz/Schafer-RF (Until Heyward)
Then, either let McLouth or Crawford go, and the OF would be Schafer, McLouth, Heyward, or Schafer Crawford, Heyward. Even though I wouldnt wanna see Schafer traded, an OF of Crawford, McLouth, Heyward is exciting also.
November 22nd, 20091:45 pm
Well even though with DOB’s last comment my scenario seems un-likely, it’s the Hot Stove, so one can dream, can’t he?
November 22nd, 20091:46 pm
Honestly I’d give up Freeman for Crawford. How bout Freeman, Medlen and B. Jones for C.C. Extend Crawford for 4 yr/48 mil
If the Braves are talking about signing a player who only has the potential of hitting 20 HR a year why not trade for Crawford who will hit 10+ HR, steal 60 bases and play great D in LF.
Just sayin here, but I can’t wait until Winter Meetings as is seems so ineveitable that Bravos can work out a D-Lowe deal, I think with either Angels for Rivera or Rangers for Cruz. Anyway – it seems we can get better and still keep Vaz. For sure, arb should be offered to the Trio. I believe Wagner would be great fit and better than Gonzo if he doesn’t accept arb. I ;like the idea of Glaus/Delgado to st incentive laden deals…I like roachy but not sold on his 1st half pace trends…Here’s to something good happening. Carl Crawford would be great for sure.
November 22nd, 20091:49 pm
Nate just seems more like a #6/7 hitter anyways, or maybe even hitting 2nd would work TnB
he has a higher OBP the last 5 year than Ferkie did for the Braves and a much higher steals success rate than Rafy did. I still fail to understand all the comments about being such a poor leadoff guy. Could he have had a better year after coming over? yeah, but his skill set is pretty decent for leadoff
November 22nd, 20091:51 pm
However, the chances of getting someone like C.C. would be awesome, the maybe a d-ro at 1b instead….like I said, things will be great to wait and see what happens…GO BRAVOS
November 22nd, 20091:53 pm
What if we could get CC, Sheff for 1b and d-ro too ? Not bad
DOB, I’m just not real sure about how that Rays rotation is, but I’d think Javy is better than any of their pitchers right now. Only way I’d trade good prospects like Schafer & others would be if I was sure you could work on an extension with him. Otherwise, it’d kinda be a stupid trade.
November 22nd, 20092:01 pm
sharon jones and the dap-kings were featured on an outro on hung
November 22nd, 20092:03 pm
sheff looking for the clear or gel geritol?
November 22nd, 20092:06 pm
sheff looking for the clear or gel geritol? semi
not sure Geritol would be enough by itself to get him through an NL season.
I believe Shef was a great player but I think he needs to stay in the AL if he wants to continue playing.
November 22nd, 20092:07 pm
Carl Crawford – yes please
November 22nd, 20092:18 pm
I’d like to have Sheffield back. Off course I know he won’t solve every offensive problem, but he is a right handed bat with power, who kills lefties. I think he is better defensively than GA was. He could play 1B, and Heyward RF.
Anyway I think he might be a good fill in player or at least a pretty good bench player.
What would the Rays ask in return of Crawford? Jordan Schafer, Jo-jo Reyes, Todd Redmond, and Brandon Jones?
November 22nd, 20092:29 pm
Raise your hand if you assumed a couple months ago that it was a given the Falcons would finally record consecutive winning seasons.
They’re 5-4 and losing 17-7 at halftime against the Giants.
November 22nd, 20092:34 pm
Personally I think the Rays would want Freeman because they have ZERO 1B prospects and Pena is a FA after this season.
November 22nd, 20092:35 pm
DOB: What is your outlook on the Braves interest on Crawford?
November 22nd, 20092:36 pm
And I can remember the folks on the blog who said in, oh, about August, “Who cares about the Braves, football season’s almost here.”
Hey, at least the Hawks had the best record in the NBA before last night.
And among the locals, at least Ga Tech and ‘Bama football fans have not been disappointed this football season.
