100 % A must deal

 

1. OF Todd Hollandworth to anybody for a bag of popcorn and peanuts :deal

2. 1B Derek Lee to the Braves for RHP Jason Marquis :thumbup

3. Pudge to anybody who would take the rest of his Marlins contract :confused

 

 

50/50 I don't know

 

1.Looper for LHP B. Classuen of the Yankees :mischief2

2. Castillo for LHP Scott Kazmir and C Justin Huber or 2B Danny Garcia :mischief2

3. Penny for SS/2B Felipe Lopez and OF S.Smitherman :mischief2

 

less than 50 % HELL NO!!!

 

1. Lowell to the Cubs, LA, or Seattle :angry

 

side note now that Seattle has gotten into the bidding for Lowell. The Cubs are going to have to come to the table hard because other than the Cubs, Seattle has the best farm system in the ML.

Braves wont add payroll.... and they have Fick and the Franco boys at 1st.... they dont want/need DLee

 

we cant get anything for TH

 

Pudge isnt going anywhere

 

no on the Looper for Claussen-(not a fan of Yankee prospects except Lowell)

 

Castillo for Kazmir and Huber would be awesome but i doubt the Mets do it

 

Penny for Lopez and Smitherman is good only if Castillo leaves

 

100% agree on the Lowell deal

Ramp first, the Braves will take Lee if offered believe me, Fick is a one yr deal. Lee would a long term for them. Second I don't want anything in return for Hollandworth is about $$$ here same with Pudge. Third I wouldn't trade Looper but if the Yankees offer either Nick Johnson(who's can be had) or LHP Brandon Classuen( who would step right into the Marlins rotation, which would look very good with three lefties in the rotation). Fourth the Mets farm system is NOT very deep "if" they want Castillo they would have to include Kazmir(should have been a Marlin last year :angry ) and ______.

*I'm hoping someone will take interest in Holly as a 4th OF for a playoff run. His salary might be the only catcher as other players of equal talent might be found for cheaper.

 

*Would rather trade D Lee outside of the division if at all. I think both Stokes and Adrian are 2 years away. Plus over the past few games Lee has raised his .OPS 70 points and has a very good K/BB not to mention his gold glove defense. He's also only 27...not sure if hes eligible for free agency or has one more year of arbitration left...ranks 8th in MLB in walks btw.

 

*Pudge, unfortunately, isnt going anywhere. He has played better as of late, but I wish he was never signed and Castro/Redmond were platooning.

 

*Loop trade - I'm not ready to hand the closers job to Spooney just yet. It's not that he lacks the stuff, but I don't think he has the mental side of closing yet. He will be expensive to sign (6yrs exp) so that would be the only reason to trade him.

 

*The Castillo trade I would not mind at all, but the Mets would never do that unless they found a taker for Alomar. I honestly wish all the Luis trade-talk would go away. I'd much rather trade JP and keep Luis as our leadoff hitter. He is starting to develop decent power and could hit 15 homers this year. If he was traded with the intention of having money to sign Lowell long term then fine.

 

*Penny trade - The Reds wouldn't do that deal unless Luis was included which would raise the price on their side as well.

 

*If it comes down to trading Lowell which I hope it does not...he should go to the team offering the best pitching prospects. So far seems like the Cubs have what it takes, but lately I've been hearing about Rafiel Soriano(sp?)...projects as a 3 pitch starter (age 23)..fastball tops out at 97mph...and hard slider . This team should

be built on pitching and we need to stock our farm teams with it.

the Braves usually don't sign anyone to more than a 2 year deal. Lee doesn't put up the numbers for the Braves to want him long-term.

"Castillo for LHP Scott Kazmir and C Justin Huber or 2B Danny Garcia"

 

- That trade would never happen in a million years.

 

Castillo's a pending FA while Kazmir is the top lefty in the minors and Huber is one of the top catching prospects. You guys are dreaming if you think you'll get those type of prospects for Castillo.

 

Garcia would have been a possibility IF Castillo wasn't a FA.

 

The Mets aren't going anywhere this year so they have no need to deal any prospects for pending FA's.

I don't think Castillo's FA candidacy is a problem for a trade.

 

Whoever trades for Castillo will be looking to re-sign him. He's not the player you look to for immediate help in a pennant race with HR's and RBI's as much as he is a trade to improve the quality of your team overall.

 

Lee will be a very good player once he leaves here. Yes, I said it reason the stadium he plays in. When 70%of your career HR come on the road its telling. Lee is not a pull hitter and never will.

 

Lee will not make a very good player anywhere unless the place he goes to has opening day in June. Until he learns how to hit in the first couple months of a season he is an average player.

i am not a lee fan but just watching last night shows how much this stadium hurts his power numbers....if he plays anywhere else, DLee has atleast 18hr right

This is the Braves Payroll Before AOL :jump

This is the Braves Payroll After AOL :brigginbounce This is the Braves Payroll Due to AOLTimeWarner's Problems :anon

 

AOLTW is looking to dump the Braves. If the Braves can't be dumped, players will be! Fire Sale will not happen to save face, instead they will not be signed and replaced by "prospects." Only time will tell when, but if AOL keeps them longer than 3 years more I will be impressed.

You can't drop Red, he is one of the players that make this team work, dropping him would be a big mistake. He has been a Marlin the longest of anyone there. He hits lefties great and is very good defensively. He is also a team player and plays with heart and hustle.
