    See, that’s what happens when you call me funny. I do something unfunny just to sabotage myself.

    Troy ‘the Trojan’ Glaus homerun #’s; I want predictions. C’mon Steve, don’t let me down.

    Glaus: 33

    Steve,

    Braves payroll last year was technically 95M, but they only paid 90M of it. Were are good. Braves aren’t lying.

    Glaus:

    Princess Leah Says:

    Oh…that Jeremy Irons. I can hear it in my head now. The Trojan will hit 29.2 homers. .2 is for the “jump over the wall and rob a guy” type catches. I like to be specific.

    Princess Leah Says:

    Just for the record JJ’s comment didn’t come up on my computer until after I had posted mine. I’m convinced…it’s an ABT conspiracy. That’s my story and I’m stickin to it!

    Steve Says:

    Glaus 2010 HR total: 22

    It’s a great question and one we’ll undoubtedly do in our predictions show right before the start of the season. Hopefully he just kills it in spring training and I feel comfortable raising that number.

    JJ: yes, I read that too (the 5MM from Hudson’s insurance money). But do you think the 90MM spent included all of the incentives, pro-rated options, etc? I don’t. I again go back to this being the first year I’ve ever heard the FO mention stuff down to that detail. Which is why it is very suspect to me. I absolutely think they cut payroll this year.

    Bubdylan Says:

    Is it safe to assume that unless Glaus has a completely bad Spring, Bobby will definitely bat him 4th to start the year? I really like McCann in the 5 spot.

    Hammy Says:

    Bobby wants the JimmyHat to hit 4th, and unless something significant happens – that’s where he goes.

    I don’t care how many homers he hits – I want him to play 135 games.

  14. 39
    Bubdylan Says:

    The JimmyHat. That’s messed up, Hammy.

    MattChu Says:

    Glaus will hit between 20 and 30 homers but if i remember correctly Glaus does’nt have that good of # against the NL EAST.He does have tower light power though so my official # would be 27 homers.
    I predict Chipper will lead the team in homers,over 30 homers just have a feeling.He has added 25lbs of muscle this offseason so pushing 240 to 250

  16. 41
    Bubdylan Says:

    Last guy to add that much muscle was Jeff Francoeur. That’s terrible news about Chipper. What the crap? He’ll be sprained all over.

  17. 42
    MattChu Says:

    LOL that is true Bub but Francoeur was not a seasoned veteran like Chipper.I think the doubles he hit will turn into more homers and have more stamina late in the season with this added muscle now by no means do i have a crystal ball this could blow up in my face.Hell i have better than 50% chance of him making my predictions just in his knowledge and knowing the pitch count,personally i think the muscle increase was for bat speed more than power but that comes along with strength( i pray he want trip over a dirt ball playing third,egg in face LOL)

    Bubdylan Says:

    Yeah, I shouldn’t have compared Chipper to Francoeur on any level anyway. Bad Bub. Chipper’s a baseball beast and a hitting genius. He deserves a little trust.

    Bubdylan Says:

    LaRoche signed for one year to D-backs, 5-6 million.

    Uh, Frank?

    *very deep forever long sigh*

    Tcc Says:

    Argh!

  22. 47
    Bubdylan Says:

    If it’s true that LaRoche turned down 2/17 from the Giants before settling for this with the Dbacks, then his agent is a Moe Ronn. That makes at least two (Bay) top players burned by their own asking price this offseason. Frankly I hope the trend continues.

    Though… would have been nice to have that defense and 2nd half pop of his at 1B, though I did always wonder about the hip.

    Curt Says:

    Even with his slow start, seems like there is a little less “if” with him than Glaus. Maybe 5-6 mill was out of the Braves price range too. Which would be very, very sad. I would have liked to have seen him back for a full season. You could see how excited and relaxed he was to be back in Atlanta. His asking price was way too much, but his settling price makes you wonder why Frank never called his people.

    Chipper’s HR tally in my opinion will be 19.

  24. 49
    Curt Says:

    “Meanwhile, it’s believed the Braves still have interest in free-agent outfielder Johnny Damon, whose asking price has presumably dropped in recent weeks as the list of potential suitors has narrowed.”

    Bubdylan Says:

    Johnny Damon doesn’t excite me much at this point.
