Yeah, seriously, Havok. Those things just aren't going to happen. Do you really expect the Braves to walk around with Tony Pena Jr. as thier backup SS?

My god. We'd look like the Mets. :-P

Oh, and Betemit is worth WAY more than Lohse. ;-)

And Sosa is about 8th on the list of guys who might be the Braves closer. ;-D

Funny, Sosa seems to be good enough to be in the rotation, not that that is working out this year as of yet. But its much harder to start than close by HUGE margin. I'd take every guy in the rotation over Reitsma as closer. These are just predictions, we shall see in time.

BRAVES fans.... Why hasn't Chuck James pitched since April, 26th??? He is considered one of the Braves' top pitching prospects and he has pitched well when used with a 2.45 ERA. Seems like a waste with someone like Sosa in your rotation.

I think he is a love child of the late great Rick James.... but no one knows for sure. I have heard that he sweats Gatorade though....

Should I feel uninformed because I've never heard of this guy? :-?

Little known fact, actually, that Rick and Chuck are married. That's why TBS has been showing so many shots of Rick in the box seats this year.

The "I'm on the Chuck wagon" bedsheet banner is a little embarrasing, though.

Every year it seems there is one guy in the pen who Bobby just refuses to use. I really can't explain it, but this year James is the guy. He only gets used in absolute mop-up duty it seems. If Sosa has a blow up before Ramirez is healthy (which should be at least two more weeks) James still might get a shot at the rotation

James is the long guy out of the pen. You'll see him when the Braves need someone to come in for 2+ innings of work, especially when the Braves are down. They've been playing a lot of close games lately, so you haven't seen James.
