Reading DOB today, I have to say I don’t have real issues with the Braves not making a silly move and trading some stud for some half-rate like Dexter Fowler or Shin-Soo Choo. If we move Teheran for one of these guys, and he’s the next Pedro, and we get 2 seasons of .243 out of the return, we will all collectively kill that move. You get Justin Upton, ok. You get Emilio Bonifacio, forget it.
curt “some half-rate like Dexter Fowler or Shin-Soo Choo.”
Shin Soo Choo a half rate? Curt are you kidding me? If Choo were a brave he would probably be our second best player, after Heyward. He’s a 5 tool player and a downright stud. Braves would be lucky to have him batting leadoff.
As far as trading Tehran for him, I don’t know. But Choo is legit.
Saw the subject line of a Press Release from the Braves that started with the words, “Braves sign free agent outfielder…” And I started getting crazy excited until the rest of the sentence was “Reed Johnson”. Nice to have him back but it was a let down.
The fact that Andruw will play in Sendai, in Tohoku, will probably make him a national hero in Japan. Sendai is about a hundred-fifty miles from the Fukushima reactor accident. Sendai and the surrounding region was devastated in the tsunami.
