i would love sheets, less $$$ than burnett (who had injuries like sheets),and imo just as good if not better when healthy. thats key though, will sheets make it a full year? the trade for Javier Vazquez isnt that great imo. gave up the hottest prospect for an overpaid starter. flowers (the catcher in the deal) tore it up in fall/winter ball, huge power. he was blocked in the braves system, but coulda been used in a trade for peavy (who makes about what Javier Vazquez does).

Still holding out hopes for Peavy now that that deal to the Cubs fell through!

Beyond that, I'm depressed.

You guys don't want Sheets.

Ultimate tease, gets hurt at the WORST possible times.

Peavy will get moved right before the deadline next year, when his value will be highest, IMO.
I'm pissed at Hendry for not getting the Peavy deal done.

The Philies have signed our very own Asian pitcher today...Chan Ho Park......fear us. :)

(we also just signed Jamie Moyer to another 2 years which means he will be pitching until he is 87 years of age)

I'm fully convinced that Moyer has joined cockroaches and Cher as things that will survive the apocalypse.

So now it's what pitcher we get for Escobar now that Furcal is back. It will be nice to have his speed and strong arm back in the infield.

The Peavy deal may be back, with Yunel part of it...

i smell a trade. smoke screen by saying kelly and escobar arnt going anywhere. i hope its peavy and not greinke. if we give up escobar in a deal for greinke, im gona be pissed. i mean he is a ok pitcher, and has the stuff, but rather keep him and deal more prospects for a better pitcher (ie peavy).

rumor is 10 mill a year for furcal. good deal.

OMG had not heard about Furcal. It hurt to watch the Braves too much this past year that I kept my distance. I'm really hoping we get Peavy.

Well crap, now it looks like LA is trying to throw more money his way to try and keep him.


Braves.com is now saying the Braves are "close" to signing him. They say he might be moved to second, but I think Escobar has a much higher trade value and will be needed to get a good pitcher.

They're saying that to keep Yunel's trade value up. That is, if he signs.
