Baldelli can absolutely move. I'd love to see him in a Bravos uni.

Re: 2006 Atlanta Braves Discussion

A Pittsburgh paper is speculating that trade talks could be revived this week with a possible deal of LaRoche/Davies for Mike Gonzalez/Humberto Cota/Jose Castillo/Nate McLouth.

W
e have no need for McLouth/Cota/Castillo. I don't like that deal one bit. If we were giving up those two players, I'd expect to be getting Paul Maholm back.

Re: 2006 Atlanta Braves Discussion

eh, I don't really like that deal either. An MLB-tested young starter in Davies and a season coming off of a great season in LaRoche for that group of guys? Come on.

Re: 2006 Atlanta Braves Discussion

That Pitt deal doesn't make much sense, seems like somebody pulling something out of their ***.

Of course, Schuerholz was gonna do that Baltimore deal before Angelos stepped in. And that wasn't such a great deal either, IMO.

And now we have the Baldelli rumors, which the more I think about them the less I like.

At least we got Soriano...

Re: 2006 Atlanta Braves Discussion

i think the team should be pretty much left in tack in regards to trades. i think we got a good team, except mabye bench. but i think the only thing that should be done is trade giles if we really need to. otherwise leave the rest of the major league team alone its a great young core imo

Re: 2006 Atlanta Braves Discussion

So will Tuesday be Marcus Giles finaly days with the Braves? Mark Bowman's article today suggested there are other reasons besides financial the Braves want to get rid of Giles.

http://atlanta.braves.mlb.com/NASApp...0/c1759024.jsp

Tons of speculation on Braves fan sites that Giles' numbers were steriod inflated or he has a drug problem which might explain the lack interest in him on the trade market. Who knows, but it looks like he is gone.

Re: 2006 Atlanta Braves Discussion

Those who do know of whatever issues Giles may have, will only hint at it, which leads to this wild speculation...

The only thing that seems to be consistent though, is that whatever it is, it's become a distraction in the clubhouse.
