    2010/11 Offseason

    Some nice free agents out there this year so this thread is probably necessary.

    Anybody hear about this one?

    Braves traded Omar Infante and LHP Mike Dunn to Marlins for Dan Uggla.


    I really like this trade and thought Uggla would of costed much more than what was given.

    Now - Uggla at 2nd and Prado at 3rd or does Chipper return to 3rd/maybe 1st.

    Uggla and Prado could also be used in LF

    I don't think the Braves are done yet .................. Crawford or Werth might be on their X-mas list.

    Still think the Braves should nut up and go after Fielder. They should of kept big Teix. They need a big bat on the corner of the infield.

    I think Prado will go to 1st, along with Freddie Freeman? That is of course until Chipper gets hurt again.

    I'm not a big fan of Uggla but it's a cheap tag because his contract is a bit high.

    Uggla can mash that's for sure, but he's not a very good feilding 2nd basemen, alot of GM's said if they where to sign or trade for him they would want to move him over to 3rd. Just shows you what the Marlins think of him trading him to team in the NL East.

    Also John Buck signed a three year deal with the Marlins, Red Sox wanted him pretty bad I know as well.

    I am not buying that .............. Same could be said for the Braves trading Infante within the division. I doubt they (Braves) think he will have another career year like he just had but they were still high on him.

    This move has more to do with new Braves manager ex Marlins manager Freddie Gonzalez being familiar with Uggla than a swap of players not well thought of.

    Here is the Jays offer for Uggla.

    Ken Rosenthal twitter.

    Blue Jays had most early interest in Uggla. Jays' offer: RHP J. Roenicke, RHP D. Farquhar and either SS R. Goins or OF D. Mastroianni

    Continuing with the conversation at hand ............

    I saw Frank Wrenn on MLB network today - he said the infield was Chipper third, Uggla second, Freeman first, no mention of SS. Prado will play left as he has been playing their during fall leagues.

    Blue Jays on verge of getting Rajai Davis from A's. Not sure of other players involved
    Here is more from Ken.

    Padres also had interest in R. Davis before acquiring Maybin. Davis could play RF for Blue Jays if Bautista moves to 3B. A's.
    Solid leadoff hitter who can swipe bases with the best of them, I wonder what this means for Lewis.

    Davis is a bum, but he's better then Maybin ever will be.

    Maybin has one of the worst batters eyes I think I've ever seen.

    Edit: How did Lewis play when he signed with TOR? I remember saying I thought you guys would enjoy him.

    He was great when he frist game to Toronto, but then near the end of the season he was lucky to start a game.

    I like this idea as well, I always liked Bautista better at 3rd anyways.

    I dont mind AA picking up Davis, he brings tons of speed to the lineup something we need, cant just be a team with guys who mash.

    It's a done deal, Davis is a Jay.

    also looking at their career splits CF/RF with lewis against RHP in RF and davis against LHP in CF would maximize their AVG as well as having whoever is off as a fourth OFer to rotate with wells/snider for rest or pinch runner/defensive sub

    ARI is saying they want at least four top prospects for Upton.

    I'm guessing Snider would have to be in the deal for sure.

    I dont know if AA would be willing to trade Drabek, he wanted him pretty bad, and they traded one of, if not the best Blue Jays pitcher ever to get him.

    Maybe something like Snider, Hechavarria, Roenicke, and maybe Marcum would get it done.

    Can't imagine they'll play Chipper daily, and I'd even think Freeman would get every so often days off as well. Prado will definitely see some time in the outfield, but they do have room for another one since Prado will more then likely end up playing more games in the infield then outfield, IMO.

    That would be one of the only way's I would trade Gardner if I'm the Yanks.

    Wont matter anyways, Justin Upton will be a Jay before long
