On second thought...

There is little chance that Marte is called up this year unless he really turns it around in Greenville.

I'd say 2005 is the earliest, but don't be suprised if he doesn't make his debut until 2006.

After posting a combined .283 average in the past two seasons with 37 home runs and 168 RBI, Marte has been outstanding in 2004. He currently sits with a solid .277 average, 11 home runs and 29 RBI, while also drawing 18 walks for an average on-base percentage of .351. Thanks to his outstanding start to the season, Marte is nearing a promotion to Triple-A Richmond, or perhaps even to Atlanta, where he should be the starting Braves third baseman for many years to come

lol you must be smoking that weed on the Care Bear. He's 20 will be 21 at the end of the year. I think he will be called up at some point this year, prolly at the end of it though. How long can the Braves stick w/ DeGrosa at 3rd?

Also not sure where that quote is from but it is not correct on one part. It wasn't an outstanding start to the season, it was a pretty slow one. He got hurt and was hitting around .240 the beginning of the year.

Little chance for a 2004 callup? Probable 2006 callup? Huh!?!

They have Mark DeRosa at 3B (possibly the only player in the majors to be the worst both offensively and defensively at a position) and nobody else is in his way. He's hitting well lately, and will probably be called up in a month or so, and at the latest September. I will be very surprised if he doesn't get called up until 2005, let alone 2006. I don't know where you got your info from, but I'd ask for a refund :-o

Decent shot he'll get called up in September, although that doesn't mean he'll play.

Would you like to place a wager on Marte being called up in a month, or at latest September?

Obviously you don't follow Marte or the G-Braves, and in the off-chance that you do, how exactly is Andy hitting well?

And if you want to know where I get my information from, it's Bill Shanks, but you wouldn't know about him unless you lived in Atlanta.

That's just stupid, he just got called up to AA, and he is struggling.
