I think we did get screwed by the Wil Nieves deal. We gotta pick up the rest of his salary for the year (but I think he was at league minium anyway). He won’t even get a sniff of the show this year. I’m still wondering why we got him unless he’s filling in for Boscan down on the farm.
Last comment on ownership until there is new ownership: If someone could turn John Malone into a real fan of the Braves (instead of a Rockies fan), it would be like having Ted Turner back. He has that type of money ($4.5 billion or so). Can’t some of you invite him over to the house and brain wash him? Money can’t buy a championship but it would make some of the decisions talked about above a lot easier.
Looks like something may be happening, though. DOB and Shulz both mentioning a quick/purposeful meeting between Fredi, Wren, and Manno.
Two rumors it could be connected to, and both worrisome: Pence is close to being traded, and Ludwick is out of the line up. Ludwick sucks and I’d hate to see what would be paid for Pence of Houston really turned down the rumored offer from Philly…
