Acuna is all of 19 and shouldn't be seeing Atlanta until after the all star break next year at the earliest. He can just replace Nick when he is ready after starting in AAA.

[quote] But it doesn't do you a damn bit of good if you then have to turn it over to an overtaxed bullpen in the 6th inning. It's why it was so frustrating when they took out Newcomb after 6 innings and 80 pitches the other day. They could have gotten at least one more inning, maybe two.

Amusing to look at I suppose, but highly inaccurate. I put in George R R Martin and the closest were Raymond Feist, Terry Brooks, Robin Hobb, and Tad Williams. You can click on one author and have an author right next to them, click on the other name and they'll be far apart....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote]Simmons' defense would be very valuable with a young staff. All comes down to Newcomb and I guess Swanson but I would definitely lean Simmons over Swanson straight up. He is probably the best defender OAT at SS and is somewhere around average with the bat. A consistent 3-4 WAR SS is very valu...
