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:
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?
