    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.

    Shin-Soo Choo would be very nice. But the Indians are smart. I’m sure they realize what they have in Shin-Soo, so they might command a significant return.

    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.

    my wife just told me about it…she was inappropriately happy. andruw in our house has always been “my baby”.

    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.

    If we sign Shin-Soo Choo, possible walk up songs:

    1. Chattanooga Choo Choo

    2. Come on ride the train (Quad City DJs)

    3. Drops of Jupiter (Train)

    4. Night Train (G&R)

    5. The LocoMotion (Kayle?)

    6. Last Train to Clarkesville (Monkeys)

    7. Train Train (Blackfoot)

    Of course…he needs to wear cleats by Jimmy Choo.

    #38 – Will, I think that 3B will either be Prado because we’ve figured out a solution in LF or it will be Juan Francisco (he typed, as bile creeped up his throat)
