Rumor Mill opinion poll

First let me preface this by saying I am usually fairly tough on journalists.  I get extra-ordinarily aggravated at them when they say things like "Garrett Anderson is a good fit for Atlanta" when every piece of evidence available says otherwise.  Having said that, I have to say that I have been very pleased with Mark Bowman's recent performance.  The guy has been spot on getting out quality information and busting rumors, that is until today.  Not sure if this is Bowman's opinion or if he is getting his information from "team sources" but his article suggests that a Marlon Byrd signing would give us reason to trade Jordan Schafer.

 

Marlon Byrd: Coming off a season during which he hit .283 with 20 homers, Byrd will be attractive to a number of clubs looking for an affordable option to fill their outfield. If the Braves were able to grab him off the free-agent market, they would find themselves with more reason to explore the possibility of trading former top prospect Jordan Schafer.

 

So rather than go on a long, stat filled, rant about how ridiculous this suggestion is I thought I'd see how the Talking Chop community felt about it.
