LaRoche will be fine if he can get his BA up to like .250. He draws enough walks to get on base enough and his power numbers are outstanding.

As for McCann, I've been saying it for a while now, he's the best C in the NL, both for fantasy and in real baseball. Salty will be traded or moved to 1B. If his glove comes around, he'll get traded (my opinion. :-)), but if it continues to be a problem, he'll end up at 1B and probably reach the majors in 2008.

But I don't think McCann is getting moved any time soon.

I agree with the others that McCann is the long term option at C for the Braves. Salty will either be turned into a first basemen(his bat will probably be good enough to move him to a position like 1B and he still be productive) or used as trade bait to fill a need. It says alot about McCann when Smoltz absolutely loves him as a catcher, so that alone should be enough for the Braves to know that McCann is definitely the catcher of the future.
