Fantasybaseballcafe's analysis of Braves

So fantasbaseballcafe.com is doing an analysis of all 30 teams, and the first team is the Braves.

A few thoughts on the article.

1. No one seems to understand the Vazquez trade was mainly a salary dump. This should be more apparent since we traded Soriano for legos and a swing set, but I guess not. In the salary dump we got a sweet pitching prospect, but that wasn't pointed out.

2. "A return to the playoffs is unlikely until those youngsters (not sure who he's talking about) produce." I don't agree with this. The team with possibly the best rotation in baseball and a deep bullpen always have a chance at the playoffs.

3. The never mentioned Chipper Jones. Chipper had a way off year (still with 18HR), but the guy hit .364 for the batting title 2 seasons ago. Let's remember Chipper as Braves fans.

4. He thinks Melky will be in left and Diaz in right. I don't think this guy is studied up like the Talking Chop's peeps. He thinks if Heyward comes up then Diaz loses his job not Cabrera. (I don't think I'm going to study his site for fantasy purposes).

5. "The trade of Vazquez seriously hurt this rotation's depth." It's not like the rotation is weak now, with Kawakami as the 5th starter. We had 6 for sure starters, now we have 5, with Medlen there if we need him. Maybe the writer should write Vazquez and let him know his feelings for him.

And a side note from me, I really really like Prado as a fantasy sleeper this season. He was tied for 10th in BA last season and 5th among 2B in OBP. Very underrated.
