    They are fairly similar at the plate when Mclouth is right. Grandy is just a triples machine, in comparison.

    Thanks BoneKrusher^

      McLouth is not going to be right anytime soon.

        Except he's not an everyday player by any means. He'd only play against lefties for us.

          I will not dispute this. I used to a big fan of his...but I've lost all faith.

          Our prospects of Mclouth or freaking Schafer in Center, kind of make me sick.

          Thanks BoneKrusher^

            I didnt mean for you, necessarily. Hell, he can go to the Royals for all I care. I just want him to play every day. His splits werent too great this year, but he's hit righties in the past. I love the passion he plays with...he's turned himself into a good fielder and for being a free swinger, with a terrible batting stance, he's shown great consistency for us, when healthy. He's a solid player, who never really got a real opportunity to play every day in Atlanta.

            Thanks BoneKrusher^

            • Could always trade some of the surplus pitching for a centerfielder.

                He's Marcus Thames with much better defense. He would be an upgrade over what we had in the same role last year. He literally would only ever play against lefties unless for significant injury. A nice way to give rest to Swisher, Gardner, and Grandy when needed.

                  They've talked about it...but one of the first names that always pops up is Jurrjens. And then I get pissed off.

                    I know how he'd fit with you guys. I'm just saying, I'd rather see him play every day and that could finally be out there for him. Elsewhere.

                    • They should have traded for Cameron Maybin, given that it cost pretty much nothing for the Pads.

                      • Wouldnt have been a bad idea, they still may do something, at least...they were apparently interested in Lorenzo Cain. But the Brewers have said they're not shopping him.

                        • They have to do something with Lowe/Hanson/Hudson/Jurrjens/Beachy/Minor all viable rotation candidates, and even Scott Diamond if absolutely necessary. That's not even to mention Teheran, who could be the best pitching prospect in baseball and Randall Delgado.

                            Teheran isnt coming up yet. I like Diamond, but he'll spend more time in AAA for a while. Delgado is very promising, but still has a lot of work to do.

                            Beachy's a long reliever or in AAA, if they dont move someone. And that's just fine for the time being. Same thing happened with Medlen.

                            I am impressed with you knowledge of out stacked farmhand, though. Braves look set for quite a while. And we havent even brought up Vizcanio's name. :D

                            Lowe, Hanson, Hudson, Jurrjens, and Minor. Are the guys at the moment.

                            Thanks BoneKrusher^

                              You should know by now that I know way too much about baseball, and can probably describe most teams farms if you give me a minute. I didn't mention Vizcaino because of the injury, but I think he's as talented as anyone sans for Teheran. They will need to figure out something in 2012 though, because...

                              2011 guys: Lowe, Hudson, Jurrjens, Hanson, Minor will all still be under contract
                              Others that should be ready: Diamond, Hoover, Teheran (barring an epic collapse), Beachy (he should still be an effective starter), Medlen
