Show #210: The Braves Land Justin Upton

Was losing Prado worth it? Is the team better now? Worries about leadership void? And what to do at 3rd?

    So Ray Lewis gets his storybook ending, and Chipper did not…

    That was a great Superbowl game. Amazing way for Ray Lewis to go out. Hopefully the Falcons add a little more talent on defense and Gonzalez stays another year so we win next year.

    ESPN’s Keith Law ranks the Braves farm system 20th:

    “They actually didn’t give up that much in the Upton trade, but they’ve drafted so poorly the past few years that it’s really hurt the system. The 2010 draft probably won’t produce much of anything besides Andrelton Simmons (no longer eligible for the list), 2011 looks just slightly better right now and 2009 is likely to end up producing Mike Minor and nothing else. They’re not lower because they’ve made good trades and found value in non-traditional ways, but you can’t get this little value from the draft for long without feeling it.”

    The draft does seem to have gone downhill under Wren. Or, I guess, under Liberty.

    Forget who we had on who talked about the Braves drafting on the cheap. Turns out it doesn’t pay off

    Looks like the Braves have had a first round draft pick on their team all but three years since 1978. (Three years between Bob Horner’s departure and Chipper Jones’s arrival.) With Justin Upton, we keep the streak for at least three more years.

    Why not just give every team a set of robots that all play with the same ability?

    Best fielding, best hitting and best pitching and everything is all the same…

    No thanks.

    Part of what is cool about the game are the trade-offs you determine in the game…

    – With the starting pitcher, who is pitching lights out, at the plate in the seventh inning of the scoreless game with first & second and one out, you have to decide whether to take your chances or pinch hit.

    – Will your great hit/no field 1st baseman get your more runs than he will cost you?

    – Etc., etc., etc.

    Makes the game worth watching…
