    Why does your sig say "Keep Andruw Jones in Atlanta?" When it would be much better to trade him for the highest bidder. I wonder how much Pittsburgh would offer for Andruw. Would they offer Bay or Duke? I kinda think it would be better to trade him before the season because Andruw could get injured or slump in the earlier months of the season and hurt his trade value.

    I was upset at the time. I probably should take that out, and I will.

    Schuerholz would have to actually offer arbitration for us to get draft picks.

    You dont know that. At the end of his career if he wants to play one more season and the Braves dont want to pay him anymore, he could go elsewhere as many have done before him.

    True, even Dale Murphy said he wouldn't re-sign with Atlanta in 1991, so the Braves had to trade him away for peanuts.

    But the impression I get from Chipper is that if he wants to restructure his contract to help the Braves get better, he cares about the team. The ultimate test is this: For a new contract, will he take more money from some other team and have them look like idiots because he will get injured? Or will he stay in Atlanta for less money than $13,666,667?
