I know there is a lot of rosterbation going on but here is why i believe we should sign Dye and Cameron!!
1. Sign Dye (if we cant afford LaRoche) to play first base give him spring training and the entire off-season to prepare! Plus he gives us a right handed power bat with 25 plus homerun ability! He also could be the short term fix until Freeman is deemed ready.. with a one year deal with a team option (just in case Freeman is not ready by the 2011 season) !!
2. Sign Cameron (move McLouth to leftfield) that gives us another power right handed bat with 25 plus homerun ability and a still really good centerfielder!! Same as Dye he could be a short term fix with Diaz playing right field so we can give Heyward some more minor league seasoning! Once Heyward is deemed ready Diaz and Cameron can spilt time with each other in left field, and can give McLouth and Heyward rest when they need it! Like Dye we can sign Cameron to a one year deal plus we has always wanted to play for atlanta so we might get him at a discount! Also, he would be a great mentor for Heyward and Schafer!
3. People ask what about Schafer well i believe he needs a least half of the year if not more seasoning in the minors and if he indeed is ready by the all-star break we can trade Cameron!! And to those people who believe we need to trade Schafer i ask why.. He is playing a prime position in centerfield with gold glove and all-star potential that is not easy to find in young talent!
I believe that those two acquistions could give us the power bats that we need and gives us plenty of room to sign some bullpen help! The only question is rather Dye can play a good enough firstbase but we do have the best infielders coach around in Glen Hubbard! Sorry if i said to much... but thanks for letting me speak my mind!!
