  • We were saying all along we would pay the remainder of Beltran's salary for the year if we got a top prospect in return.

    • Rangers need to focus on bullpen, so I'm happy we're out of the Beltran competition.

      • So this Zack Wheeler guy, he's pretty good?

          Top 40 prospect. Great K rates, very good groundball rates but he walks to many right now. He has #1 or #2 upside though.

          • Can't say I'm surprised by the trade. Glad it wasn't the Phillies who got bent over.

            • Arodys Vizcaino has been promoted to AAA as expected. He'll probably see our bullpen in September.

              And an update on Tyler Pastornicky...he's lighting up AAA since being promoted. Granted, all he does is hit singles and steal bases, but he's playing well.

              Thanks BoneKrusher^

                  I'm real big on Singleton but Pence would be incredible. I think he'd love playing here too.

                  • Wheeler is pretty old for a guy two years out of high school though.

                    • Stros want pitching, maybe Phillies try to move Singleton for a pitcher of his caliber

                      • I don't know how serious we are with Quentin but any right handed bat would be pretty vital at this point. Read that the Braves are back in the Pence stakes because of losing McCann. And we're unwilling to trade Brown or Worley.

                          True he was a year older than most of the other HS'ers that year. I don't think thats much of a big deal though. If he can just cut down on his walks by half then the upside is ridiculous.

                              They did by offering Cosart.

                              • Braves should really consider bringing up AAA All-Star, Jose Constanza. He's a 28 year old, 4th OF type. But he's extremely fast (voted BA's fastest AAA player last year), he gets on base, and he can play CF.

                                It's worth a shot...he's currently hitting .321 with a .370 OBP. With 23 SB. The problem is...he's another one with absolutey no power. He's a singles, slap hitter, he has like 2 doubles in 84 games. lol. But he still does manage to get on, and would still probably be an upgrade over Schafer's bat. Schafer who happens to be injured right now, as well...again.

                                Thanks BoneKrusher^
