He's playing much better in May than he was in April.

I'd watch him until mid June, if he doesnt starting acting like the Giles of old see if you can trade him.

He had a bad April but has picked it this month some.... Historically, he has one or two cold months a year, and the rest, he's on and occassionally red hot.

So in other words, I do not believe he will pick it up much. Thats kinda why I traded him away. Its implied that you trade players you don't like away. Baby-Braves are a decent team, but he won't get as many green lights for steals or as many runs because of the weak offense. Chipper is still injured IMO, Francouer is still a year away, Andruw is either very hot or very cold, and the rest of the team is just mediocre (McCann injury does not help).

There ya' go, just for you I went into detail. I simply put my treade up to imply I did not believe he will be a vital 2B for the rest of the year. "Always insightful"? Yup, thats what I hear around the boards when refering to me, not always, but most of the time. :-)

The year he ran over Prior he went nuts around the Allstar break but I'm not sure I'd really want to count on that at this point. If there's no alternative or you have room and don't 'need' anyone, it might be worth it to hang onto for a while... :-?

Sorry to burst your bubble, the Braves are 3rd in the NL in runs scored. How weak is that? :-?
