Braves dont have to cut payroll

Braves plan to hold payroll steady; four big offseason issues
October 13
Atlanta Journal-Constitution (registration required): "Braves president Terry McGuirk said the team won't slash payroll for 2005, refuting rumors of another round of cuts following last winter's $15 million reduction. But with J.D. Drew, Jaret Wright and four others eligible for free agency, and Marcus Giles and Rafael Furcal eligible for arbitration, it's still going to be difficult for general manager John Schuerholz to put together another contender with an $82 million payroll."

Should be interesting to see what the Braves do this offseason. I'm one who seriously doubted their ability this year but they proved me wrong. I'm curious to see what they decide to do this offseason.

I just hope they dont sign Drew to a long time deal. The guy has talent but I think once he gets a long term contract again he will spend more time on the DL than on the field.

That's good news for the Braves but with all of the raises that are due, they will technically have to indirectly cut payroll. ;-) Maybe letting players walk is a better statement.

Same here. I can't think of more than a handfull of people who thought they could pull it off, and most of them probably truly didn't beleive it.

Yep. Then you'll know how Cardinal fans felt. :-D

I'd imagine they'll offer Drew 4 years for $32 million take it or leave it. I really don't believe there's a big market out there for Drew given his past.

I didn't think it deserved its own thread at the time. Guess I was wrong. :-b

Meet the Mets! :-b

Seriously, Bobby Cox and Leo Mazzone can make just about any team competative. Leo must have a magic wand for pitchers 8-o
