The Braves' off-season needs: A middle-of-the-order hitter in left field, veterans in the bullpen to replace closer Billy Wagner and setup man Takashi Saito and a right-handed hitter to complement Freddie Freeman at first base.From Ken Rosenthal. How does this guy keep his job? A middle-of-the-order hitter in left field? Well gee, we've only been looking for one for three years now. That's some brilliant analysis. Veterans in the 'pen to replace Saito and Wagner? This is kind of sketchy. If he's saying we need to add a veteran for the middle innings, then that's fine. But if he's suggesting that we need new 8th and 9th inning guys, then he's nuts. A right-handed hitter to complement Freeman? He certainly held his own against lefties in AAA, and it would be stupid to spend money on a right-handed 1B. Matt Diaz would be just fine as our 1B if Freeman can't hit lefties at first.
