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]

ONe of the espn baseball guys (stark I think) had chipper as the best #1 draft pick ever.

Interesting, he's up there. I don't think I could put him above Griffey or Arod though.

Phew. I like this signing. I have such low expectations for 2011 that I think his mentoring services are worth the fee alone. So what if he kills the lineup one day out of five? He won't be the only one the way this off-season is shaping up. I wouldn't mind a disaster year if it would move me up the season ticket waiting list.

I like the signing too. Definitely happy to keep Tek around as long as he's only playing 20% of the time. I'll tell you what I don't like though:

Jarrod Saltalamacchia... who might wind up being Boston's catcher of the future.


That guy sucks. He was supposed to be the next big thing like 6 years ago. It ain't happening.

I think it's too early to say I have low hopes about 2011. But they're gonna have to start making some off-season noise very soon. I think they should just open up the wallet and sign Beltre, Crawford, and Werth. I don't really want to see JD Drew play ever again, so why not just throw Ellsbury, Crawford, and Werth in the OF? Obviously there's zero chance of them signing all 3 of those guys, let alone doing it and then also not trading Ellsbury. But fuck it, they should just go for it anyway.

Yeah, Salty should have a short leash. I don't mind giving him a year, but you can't let him be a project for three or four.

I can't help but think Theo is saving some dry powder for next year's FA class. I think he wants next off-season to be like the 2008-2009 off-season was for the Yankees, with a couple of big splashes. I could be wrong though.

I suppose you could be right. I haven't really looked ahead to next year's FA class. Who are the big names?

ETA: Never mind, I found a list of next year's free agents. Other than Chris Carpenter and the three 1B (Fielder, Howard, Gonzalez), I don't really see any names on that list that would make a Crawford-level splash. I say go get your big guns now and deal with next year when it comes.

As of today, some big potential FAs could be:

Adrian Gonzalez
Prince Fielder
Ryan Howard
Albert Pujols
Robinson Cano
Yadier Molina

Pujols isn't on the list I'm looking at. They're not gonna go after Cano when they have Pedroia. And Molina's good and all, but I don't think I'd call signing him "making a splash."

The only potential 2012 FA outfielder who I think is even close to Crawford/Werth is Sizemore, unless of course Bautista hits 100 home runs again. I'd love to see them go after one of those stud first basemen. But I think there are enough pieces in place that a couple big moves this offseason give them a chance to win now, and I like that idea better than waiting to see who might be available next year. If it's at all realistic to keep Beltre and sign Crawford of Werth (I'd prefer Crawford, but Werth adds the bonus of taking more playing time away from Drew), I think that's the move.

Sizemore is a giant question mark health wise.

Pujols is definitely available then, but many assume he'll sign an extension with the Cardinals sometime this year.

It still sounds like Gonzalez is the one they want, shifting Youk over to third.

I completely agree. But on the list of OFs I'm looking at who are potential free agents next year, he's the only one who I think has the potential to be comparable to Crawford. All the more reason to go get a stud right now. Crawford's more of a sure thing, and he's available right now. They desperately need OF help in my opinion, and there are good ones on the market this year. Guys like McDonald and Nava filled in admirably last year, but they're basically career minor leaguers. Sending them back out there while waiting around to make a splash next year just seems dumb to me.

I'm definitely on board with moving Youk back to third and going after Gonzalez. But I don't think that should be done at the expense of getting an outfielder. I see no reason they can't do both.

True, though they did get JD Drew who had a career year and they made the playoffs and then compensatory picks when LA signed him... But definitely would be nice to have ol' Wainwright in the rotation.

Tek is on pace for 10 base hits this year.

For you weirdos who don't watch AAAA-ball because it's so terrible to have to watch pitchers hit, I'm guessing you can't watch Sox games either, because watching this asshole hit is about 10 times worse.

I know, he calls a great game behind the dish <jerk-off motion>.
