I actually want to keep esky; He just needs to work on his hitting, defensively he is top notch.
Btw whoever produces Braves games at Turner Field needs to tell the Thrashers how to put on a sporting event. I want to see the Home Depot Tools Race on Ice between periods, I want them to play the "Chattahoochee" video in the 3rd period, I want John Rich to make a country song about the Thrashers. I want them to play more Rap like Bryan Mccan's walk up song, I want a Chick Fil A inside of Philips Arena. Oh yea, the Blue Crew is cool, and some are hot, but they pale in comparison to the Braves girls. These are things that will increase interest, fan revenues, and Cash monies going into the franchise.
What would we trade Escobar for? Don't we have a top shortstop prospect on the come up that is rated much better than Escobar?
I can't think of anyone unless it's Mycal Jones. However, I don't think he's ready to take over any time soon. He's still in High-A ball.
With this being Bobby's last year (and Chippers???) I can't see them hurting their chances to make the post season with the dumping of Escobar. He's not having a year up to expectations and he's a flake but I don't see a better option in the organization at the moment.
No confidence in Medlen? Do you understand he is 100000x better than Kawikami? Then again who isn't. Medlen ERA is like 3 thats great for a 5th pitcher we are loaded at pitching. Braves are like 10-1 when Medlen pitches.
