Re: 2006 Atlanta Braves Discussion

Didn't just about all of Aybar's hits come in that one game?

I'm not giving up on Aybar, I like him. I just think Betemit has the higher upside.


Braves win!

Good job Wickman. Back to 5 1/2 games back.

Re: 2006 Atlanta Braves Discussion

Yes! Braves win. Not a good series but we couldn't afford to go down 7 1/2 games. Now out 5 1/2 going home. Hopefully we can get on a roll.

I don't expect we will, either. He's already making $4 million, you figure he'll get more than that in free agency. Braves wouldn't give Farnsworth what he wanted, I don't think they'll give it to Baez...

Though maybe after this year's disaster, they'll increase the bullpen budget some.

Aybar had four hits in his first game, four since; Betemit had five in his first two games, two since.

Re: 2006 Atlanta Braves Discussion

Fine, but I'm sure Betemit wouldn't have missed second base today.

I don't think you were ever very high on Betemit, but I still think he's gonna turn out to be the better player.


Though ideally, Aybar would be on the bench and Chipper at 3rd, but...

I think Betemit has peaked as a situational player. He is a gem coming off the bench to spell another infielder, but I don't think he has what it takes to play everyday at one position. There's no denying that he is a bonafide hit machine, but I don't think it translates well if he would be in the lineup everyday -- not to mention he is decent at three positions from day-to-day, but not entirely reliable when put there for any extended period of time.

Don't get me started. Again.

Re: 2006 Atlanta Braves Discussion

Good win today to go back to 5.5 out. Dammit, can you guys believe we could have easily been 2.5 out after this weekend series? That hurts.
