    It was just a matter of time, like a lot of us were saying in here. :D

    I still hate Schafer at CF, but I still would hate to trade any of the current pitching staff for a bat right now.

    And on another note... Freddie is freaking mashing right now. mmm mmm.
    I love Schafer in center. The man is probably one of the best defensive CF's in baseball and he may not have the best batting average but he scores runs pretty well which is what a leadoff hitter is supposed to do right?

      No he isn't, and no it's not. A leadoff hitter is supposed to get on base, and Schafer doesn't do that particularly well.

        He's terrible....he'd be better off batting 8th. He has a .293 OBP, that is pathetic for a lead off hitter. I wouldnt hope for any kind of real consistency to come out of him. He hasnt been able to do anything with the bat, since the whole HGH situation. Statistically, Frenchy was better at getting on than Schafer is. lol. Atlanta is trying hard to turn him into a leadoff guy, because it gives them speed at the top...but he's just not a great fit. The stats dont lie. He doesnt have a good bat at all. Just for a comparitive factor...Schafer's numbers even pale in comparison to the ordinary, Gregor Blanco, the Braves had a couple of years ago. Schafer looks like a 4th OF type in the long run....or maybe a weak starter for the Royals one day. An upgrade or a legit lead off man, would do wonders for the Braves' offense.

                I feel like they need to upgrade at first base. I'm really not a fan of Overbay and if they can get a solid starter in his place and the pitchers can keep it up I think they'll give the Cards a LOT of trouble.

                  That's what happens when your team pretty much sucks every year. All they wanna talk about is Big Papi's ***** punches and the Yankees rainout.

                    I agree. Rumors are going around that the Pirates are interested in Carlos Pena. I wouldn't mind it.

                    Also, Matt Hague in AAA is mashing the ball.

                      Considering Overbay has a **** average, Penas avg and Ks would be nothing compared to the run production and average D. What would you see them giving up?

                        Trade you Juan Miranda or Brandon Allen for some sort of relief pitcher

                        • Alright Reds either start making some trades or Call up all those youngsters in AAA that u are high on.

                          God i Hope the Pirates Win the Central i am tired of seeing the Cardinals/Cubs winning it all the time.

                            Probably a C pitching prospect.

                            I'll pass. I'm not high on any of them honestly. I'd let Hague play if it came down to that.

                              Are you not pimping Brandon Allen anymore?
                              The Brian Sabean sig is no more. I disagreed with you on so many levels. And then you went out and built a dynasty. I am lame.

                                Is that a rash?
