Roster Jockeying


I'm wondering if anyone has any insights into the possibility of simply letting the following players walk over the next 45 days because I'll be damned if I want to see any of them take the field:

Nate McLouth

Melky Cabrera

Kenshin Kawakami

I'm fairly sure the speculation on players like McPopout and Melky is rampant on every Braves board. However, it needs to be vetted. Clearly Hinske is a better option in left. I think Matty is dialing in and is a known better second half hitter. These others beginning to really drain the line-up.

When Jordan comes back (which it sounds like he could some time this summer) we'll have to move someone to make room: who?

When Melky is still sub-Mendoza in mid-June do we look at Gregor Blanco (who we know isn't "the answer")?

If Hank Blalock comes free, do we make a move for him as further Chipper insurance?
