at least they got rid of that dirty spic and have that white boy salty stepping in there. He's the Matt Light of catchers.
The dirty spic sure could hit...too bad his arm was a noodle. Salty isn't the answer long term.
salty was a can't miss prospect with the braves, I'm surprised he hasn't worked out.
That Tex trade the Braves made with Texas doesn't get enough pub for being a gawd-awful trade with hindsight. It started to with the Rangers doing so well this year, but not enough I think. Elvis and Neftali, ftw.
That Texeira trade was awful but if the Braves are trading a highly touted prospect that is "Major league-ready," just walk away.
Salty, centerpiece of the Tex trade who was blocked by McCann? Nothing.
Marte to Boston (for Renteria then flipped to the Indians for Coco [IIRC]), best 3B guy and blocked by Chipper? Nada.
Any and all of the pitching prospects sent to Oakland for Hudson? Whole lotta meh-
There were a bunch more back in the early 00s and the 90s but I'm too lazy to look 'em up but ESPN or someone had a list a year or two ago about it.
They drafted Todd van Poppel IIRC but he wouldn't sign with them.
Nah, they had the #1 overall that year and wanted to take him, but he pulled an Elway and said there was no way he'd sign with them. They drafted Chipper instead [/owner of too many Van Poppel baseball cards back in the day]
