    There's no getting around that fat contract! Maybe the Yankees will take him, after all they have blown money on Jaret Wright, Kyle Farnsworth, and Steve Karsay. (all former Braves)

    We owe Hampton 14.5 million next year and 15 million in 2008. I think he has an option year in 2009 for 20 million with a 6 million dollar buyout. That's a stiff price to pay for him, so I am guessing if he is healthy he will pitch regardless of whether he is effective or not coming into the season. Man, that's a lot of money to pay for Mike Hampton.
    Eeeyep. Therefore, he's one of our starters, whether we like it or not.

    We really won't know how Hampton will perform, given he hasn't played in a year, but I think Ramirez is the odd man out. He's been a liability in the last few years.
    We still have to give Hampton a shot at getting back in the rotation because

    1. He's a veteran and he knows how to pitch, even if he hasn't pitched in over a year.
    2. The Braves are basically stuck with him because of his contract.

    So Hampton will hopefully be the man with the plan next season.

    Goodbye Good and Bad Horacio, hello Mike Hampton!

    Either one of the bottom guys needs to be gotten rid of, Horacio the prime one. He has lost it. Someone should take him because he's a left-hander. Davies, I'm willing to give him another shot or two, this is only his second year in the bigs.

    I think the motto should be...if it helps our bullpen do the trade lol. What's the rotation for next year look like?
    Is this it?
    Smoltz
    Hudson
    James
    Hampton
    H. Ramirez or K. Davies ?

    Mmmm, I don't call .235/.235/.415 that amazing, especially in 17 at-bats, mostly as a pinchie. Ward could go in a trade easily.

    Maybe we could give Andruw/Francoeur a day off each week and start some other guys. We got depth, we might as well use it. This gives some other guys PT and keeps the starters fresh and avoid injury somewhat.

    We need to trade some of them. I doubt that Scott Thorman and Kelly Johnson are going to be traded. I think that Darlye Ward and Matt Diaz are the odd men out here because they've been here the least. You notice that despite Diaz's stats in a part-time role, he hasn't been given the starting job?

I kinda wish braves had DH for Thorman's sake. Ward should platoon some with Francoeur and Diaz in RF and LF. We really need someone to step up and take the LF role instead of just mediocrity like usual. PS did you guys see the marlins game where the braves came back in the 10th inning? That was the worst defense I've ever seen by a team.

    What are we going to do with Diaz, Langerhans, and Ward, and Kelly Johnson, and Scott Thorman next year? All of those guys are capable left fielders.

    Hey guys.

    I haven't stopped watching the Braves, and I'm glad. They are getting it done, to my surprise.

    *looks at the Numbers, Probability, and Opinion thread*

    I won't get that excited... yet


    And, Ward is a monster. He scares baseballs out of the park.
