Robert Fick???

Postby chinch sacs » Mon Dec 08, 2003 2:12 am

Since the Braves ditched the "Franco Bros" (Julio and Matt) are they going to keep Fick at 1st? I heard they were interested in a "power 1st baseman" when Lee and Sexson were still on the market, but I have heard nothing since.

It looks like Shef and Maddux is gone for sure, and Javy gone soon, so they should have some cash handy...

What do you guys think?

After that stunt against the Cubs, I'm inclined to think he won't be back. And I hope he isn't back.

they should get rid of fick and gain more money and they should just start to rebuild for the future looks like the braves wont win a division title this year and this might be the year the braves dont make the playoffs and also looks the begging of a rebuilding porject for the braves this year and the next couple.

Yeah, I hope he is forever booed wherever he may roam. But that's only something Cubs fans will remember. Mostly.

I'm still pissed about Tino Martinez charging Miguel Batista earlier this season. :-C

He hooked Eric Karros as he was running into first base on a play at first. I just think it reinforced to Bobby Cox that Fick wasn't the type of player they wanted...and besides, his defense is terrible.

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
