A break from the ordinary: June/July 2012 Rosterbation


As trade rumors have died down with Adam Jones and Seth Smith (thankfully) and with the majority of our moves this offseason complete, I figured it was time to look further down the road: Midseason.

Assumptions I'll make based on last year:

1) Uggla stays healthy and puts together a similar season, albeit a more consistent season starting off, pencilling him in for 30+ HRS and a power bat in the middle of the order.

2) SP remains a strength, even if we have a SP or two go down during the year due to a shoulder, leg, tendinitis, or whatever injuries you can think of.

3) Freeman produces a similar year, maybe better, maybe a little worse, but remains a consistent force in the lineup

4) McCann stays McCann

5) Bourn is Bourn

6) O'Ventbrel stays dominant

Now for the question marks..

Scenario 1: Chipper goes down.. again..but for a long time.

Yes, Prado would slot into that spot, so that opens up a vacancy in LF.

Who would be some potential fits? Who would be willing to move?

Scenario 2: The Pastor flames out quickly.

He's a rookie, so who knows, but its best to stay positive.

Who would be a mid-season acquisition the Braves would target?

Scenario 3: Heyward doesn't rebound.

Does he go down to the minors, does he remain the starter throughout, does he get traded (i know, i know, but just wanted to throw the option out there).

So, to summarize: LF, SS, and RF midseason acquisitions.

Keep it clean..ish.
