I doubt the Braves can get either of those RP for Estrada. The Twins are set at C and the Pads might need Linebrink to close.rotterdam_82 wrote:Estrada will be traded, there's no question of it. We need arms in the pen and he's just about the right value for someone like Crain or Linebrink in my opinion.
why would we deal lugo for a catcher??????? if we do deal lugo, then i am pretty sure there will be some pitching in the deal in return for sure.....
http://atlanta.braves.mlb.com/NASApp/ml ... p&c_id=atlThe Braves have shown some interest in Tampa Bay's Julio Lugo. While he doesn't match Furcal offensively or defensively, Lugo is a veteran who could bat leadoff and play shortstop. The Devil Rays are looking for starting pitching, a third baseman and a catcher, three positions where the Braves have the depth necessary to be a potential suitor
The Braves and Rays discussed Julio Lugo again on Tuesday, a source told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
If Rafael Furcal leaves, the Braves would like another top-of-the-order threat to replace him at shortstop. The Rays could be interested in some combination of Johnny Estrada, Wilson Betemit and young pitching. Nov. 30 - 1:33 am et
That would just be absurd for Atlanta.... Perhaps there's talk of including Baez in the deal? Atlanta still needs a closer and even after that, a lot of bullpin help, so Baez is a pretty good fit for them. Toss him in and the deal starts to make more sense.....
