best reason is that estrada's getting paid about 4x as much as mccann is, so unless they manage to deal estrada in the off-season and sign a cheap backup, there will be pressure to play estrada because of his salary if nothing else. personally, i'd like to see estrada moved (he's good enough to be starting somewhere) and the braves bring in someone along the lines of eddie perez for the next year or so until saltamachia is ready to go.

two years ago Estrada played extremely well, he had a good average and was a very clutch hitter even though he didn't hit for much power he routinely knocked in players when they were on base.
