[quote]The Braves' lineup was off the charts good last year when JHey lead off. [/quote] It was. But it is also an extremely small sample size. If you want JHey to be a leadoff hitter for this team in the long term (next 3 years), I'm almost fine with it because it means he won't be able to ...

[quote]Whats your fixation on ichiro? Dude didn't even post a .300 obp last year [/quote] I don't have a fixation on Ichiro. He's just someone who could possibly be available and would be a decent enough leadoff to allow Heyward to provide maximum value from the 2 hole. If the Royals end up ...

[quote]BJ has made some nice adjustments in the last three games. He has 15 plate appearances, reached base safely six times, smacked a homer and stolen two bases. Additionally, he only has one strikeout. [/quote] I hope it continues. I doubt it does, but I would love to be wrong on that....

[quote] think they would trot out Pena/Schafer before they explore outside options, but I agree that he's on an extremely short leash. [/quote] I have no doubt.

Just to clairfy, I'm not saying give up a king's ransom for him. I'm saying if the Yanks are willing to part with him for something, then maybe we should do it and send Schafer down. BJ on the bench would provide pop and platoon well with Ichiro at times IMO. If the Yanks are willing to dump...

Braves fans: Would getting a leadoff hitter help this team tremendously? - Moustache
I know the Braves are doing well now, but it is concerning that our first 2 batters are batting .170. To succeed in post season play, you need guys who can get on base to pressure the other team's ace. YOu also need an ace of your own, but the Braves will have to make do. Any chance the Yank...

re: Mahtook is off to a great start for the Durham Bulls - Moustache
His ticket to a big league career lies in his speed and defense more than his bat. With as much as he K's and as little as he walks, he's almost a Francoeur clone. It's good that he's off to a great start, but I still think he's a platoon guy in the bigs. ...
