Re: 2007 Atlanta Braves Discussion

Kinda disappointed in letting C.Wilson go. He's always been a good hitter against lefty's and a good bat off the bench. Unfortunately, couldn't get in a groove this year before being let go.

Yeah! I was wishing that Trey Hodges was gonna get the call instead. I'm sorry but I just don't have any confidence in Redman. I know he's a veteran but never has impressed me at all. I saw the Wilson thing coming. They signed him to help with playing Thorman against righties & Wilson against lefties but Wilson has really struggled this year. Thorman has shown he can play even against lefties so that defintiely played a role in releasing Wilson too.

I haven't heard anything about Salty though. I know the Braves activated Pena from the DL too so does this mean that Salty has been sent back down to AA? I am hoping that Salty can get some work at 1B because with McCann at C then where else is Salty gonna fit in the future? Thorman's solid play is helping his playing status but could the Braves be looking at a platoon with Salty & Thorman at 1B? Thanks!

Re: 2007 Atlanta Braves Discussion

I read somewhere that Wilson was cut so Salty could stay in the bigs. What they do with him next is anyones guess.

Re: 2007 Atlanta Braves Discussion

Probably platoon Salty with THroman at 1st and also have him be a emergency catcher. I like the move. I liked Wilson but Salty is the future. BTW, how can we lose 3 of 4 to the freaking Nats. Unbelievable. Now a weekend series against Boston.

yeah this going to be a big weekend for the Braves. Luckily Smoltz and Hudson are pitching in the Boston series, so that'll help.

Oh no! Woodward is a nice guy to have as a backup ulitlity player but this doesn't cut it. Salty has been taking ground balls at 1B since his call-up so I think he's ready IMO. Thanks! GO BRAVES! BTW, tonight's game vs Red Sox has been postponed.
