  • Burrell can't be released. He's on the 15-day DL. Needs to be activated first, but the 15 days aren't up yet.
    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.

      2nd story CSN "Authentic" has botched today (first one Clements release). I would rather just boot Hinshaw off the 40 man. Wish they could DFA Bill Hall, who comes off the DL Saturday.

        • According to ESPN's Jim Bowden, the Indians have acquired Kosuke Fukudome from the Cubs for prospect outfielder Abner Abreu and right-hander Carlton Smith.

          • Braves are now expected to set their sights to Quentin. I'd only want him if we could extend him. I still have no idea what this would mean for our OF, considering Prado is in LF and Heyward is in RF.

            Not too keen on Heyward getting sent down.

              Red Sox "all over" Bedard. Assuming the price is right, I really like it. Probably more for a B prospect and a C or a few C's, but we've got that down on the farm. I just hope we don't give up any of the high upside Greenville hitters. Doubt that's a problem anyway.

                Probably should have picked up Fukudome, because the Indians are only paying him about $775,000 and they gave up two guys who suck.

                • If the White Sox trade Quentin, they will likely use Viciedo to replace Quentin. The holdup of Quentin going to the Braves is the condition of Viciedo's thumb. He hasn't played since Saturday, so we will have to see. I would like for this to happen so the Sox can get a good arm or two from the Braves system.

                  • I cant stand rentals...especially at a position that is currently filled with a young phenom. Granted, a phenom who has battled injury all year and is struggling with his swing. But still.

                    As for Fukudome, Brodeur....the Braves are looking for a right handed bat, first off. Preferably a power bat. I still think Bourn is the best thing for us...even though, he's a left handed, speedy, on base machine. haha.

                    Thanks BoneKrusher^

                      So basically the same things Fukudome does, except with a lot more speed. Well then...

                      And again, they gave up NOTHING for him. Those two guys are absolutely horrible.

                      • Quentin is up for arbitration next year, so it's not exactly a rental. If anything, Quentin would probably be replacing McLouth in the lineup. He played left field for the Sox in 08 and 09.

                          Bourn plays CF. I'd rather not move forward with Fukudome in CF every day. I value Bourn's speed at the lead off position, as well.

                            Prado is our LF. Mclouth is currently playing CF, for the injured Schafer. If they get Quentin, they plan on moving Heyward down.

                            Thanks BoneKrusher^

                              But Fukudome is a huge upgrade over McLouth and speed isn't that important, as long as the guy leading off gets on base. It's irrelevant, the Braves should just try to acquire Bourjos.

                                True...but I just want to end the search for a long term CF already, dammit. haha. And Bourn is absolutely perfect for the Braves. They've been looking for a Furcal lead off type since he left...it'd be great to have him

                                Bourjos would be a good addition. Although he's been slow to replicate any of his minor league numbers. I wish he was more selective.
