What a lousy call at home plate. I’m all about winning a game but not one the umpire gives us. Yeah, yeah, I know, we’ve been on the other side of that before. tonight “blue” was horrible behind the plate.
#140, no. I still think we need another proven clutch hitter like Beltran. The asking price is coming down. Minor gets him and I would do it. The opinion that matters is obviously Wren, and I hope the asking price comes down to the Oberholtzer caliber prospects, which is what it takes for Beltran to be a Brave. I just think that someone else jumps in before it goes that low. Beltran and Reed Johnson are the only two I like in terms of OFers.
Wren will not sacrifice A quality prospects. I like that. One or maybe two will become what they’re projected to be, so you need to hang onto all four pitching prospects to make sure you get the maximum benefit.
It’s terrible to think about the possibility of Vizcaino, Feliz, Venters, and Kimbrel in the same bullpen. That’s why I hate thinking about past trades. If we do get a guy like Beltran, I’m sure we’ll all put it in the Teixera category as far as trades go.
