Show #170: Braves Leave Winter Meetings Empty Handed

JJ and Prado still on the block.  The short stop position. The fortified Marlins. And the Albert Pujols deal.

    We could start discussing movies…

    Do you think Chipper’s comments were a way of getting the front office to keep Prado? Like hey, my knee hurt so bad after the season I could barely move. Maybe don’t trade my back up. Yeah they feel great after a month and a half rest, but when will I get a that amount of rest in the span of a 6 month season? By the way I’m 40.

    …or music? Yes, the site is dead. That’s because I’m busy. I know, I know…where are my priorities. But some things just can’t be helped.

    Don’t know is anyone or everyone has seen Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, but I thought it was pretty great. David Fincher is one of my favorite directors. Saw the Descendants and thought it was slow as slow can be. Took the kids to see Tintin. I read the books as a kid and loved them. My oldest son is now obsessed with Tintin. That’s about it recently.

    We are having a call tonight about a show, so if anyone has some ideas for us to discuss, other than the very obvious and tired stuff like the Braves not making any moves, let us know. I certainly want to go over that Chipper interview. I really didn’t like a bunch of his answers.

    Curt,
    G with DT was awesome…and disturbing. I’ve read the trilogy and the second two books are twice as good as the first. Highly recommend.

    Braves just announced a 1 year deal with Jack Wilson. Does this cement Pastornicky as starting SS? I’d say yes? Is this the last deal of the offseason for the Bravos? Another yes, I bet.

    Steve Says:

    #105: Have you seen the original Swedish films (there’s one for each book)? They are great, too. But I loved the Fincher better.

    Wholeheartedly disagree on your assessment of the books, though. Liked 2 and 3 but thought 1 was by far the best.

    Curt,

    - Jack Wilson signing, obviously
    - haven’t seen any of those movies yet, but I want to. Saw “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy,” and thought it was pretty slow and extremely hard to follow.
    - in response to your tweet about whether the Wilson signing marks the end of our offseason moves — I think so. I really hope they keep Prado and wind up trading JJ. I don’t think they’ll be able to get what they want for the latter before the season starts, but if he performs well during the first few months, they’ll trade him by midseason.

    Braves signed Prado to one year deal tonight. Doesn’t mean anything in terms of trade likelihood. Now it’s easier to trade him, because a team doesn’t have to deal with arbitration.

    Brave in new york Says:

    Though he’s one unattractive fellow, Jack Wilson is a terrific fielding SS. I think he’s a great backup. I just hope Pastornicky can hold the job and we don’t need to rely on him as a starter. He can’t strikeout any more than Gonzo…

    Nate Says:

    Prado got a 1 yr, $ 4.75M deal. Hopefully he’ll be ours for the whole year.

    Leah Says:

    #107. It’s sad when you’re wrong. :)

    Walker Says:

    If Pastornicky struggles and we have to rely on Wilson as a everyday SS then it’s safe to say we will be looking for a SS at the trading deadline. Maybe the Blue Jays might trade their young SS. He looks like a good player. I forgot his name though.

    You guys could do a show on these movies and the 49ers game. Also, how bout them Hawks? Seriously though, can’t wait for ABT to restore its place on my Monday morning commute.

    BTW I recommend Sherlock Holmes. Guy Richie makes the first watchable Holmes films!

    Steve Says:

    Thanks, Danny. We will be doing a show tomorrow night (Monday).

    The new alternate jersey’s been leaked. It think it’s great: http://www.sportslogos.net/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/braves2012alt.png

    #115, I like ‘em. Hopefully Seth Smith will never wear one.

    Sorry, #116.

    David Says:

    My post on #93 took a step closer to becoming reality last night, and I think they’re going to get past San Francisco next Sunday as well. What do y’all think?

    Can’t wait for a new ABT podcast!

    Athletics aquire Seth Smith. Best news of the off season?

  21. 121
    Steve Says:

    #120 – Yes!

    #119 – Definitely. I think we’re heading for another Giants/ Pats Superbowl.

    If you have to forecast, forecast often.
    It’s not whatever you pay a male, but what he costs you that counts.
