    What about Acuna??? Yes, he's only 19 but I remember another 19 year old who came up and hit 2 HRs in game 1 of WS.
    Oh, I've slipped the surly bonds of earth,
    And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings......

    And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod
    The high untresspassed sanctity of space,
    Put out my hand and touched the face of God.

    I think Acuna could be here rather quickly. But we have a stable outfield that will hopefully produce so I don't think they will rush him. If he comes knocking though I'm sure they'd figure things out.

    Braves have signed James Loney to a Milb contract.

    Can do worse than Loney. Assuming he shows he is ready in AAA with the bat.

    It's taken over a month, but it finally has happened.

    Braves DFA Collmenter. YEA!!!!

    Call up Wisler

    That leaves room to send Motte down when Adonis comes off DL. Now, get rid of Bonifacio when Cabrera is ready, then Santana when Freddie is ready.

    Colon should join Collmenter in the unemployment line... As well as Bonifacio and Santana...

    Would someone refresh my memory please, Why did we get rid of Simba a couple of years ago. He's hittin 100 pts better than Blaa with more power.

    While with the Braves, Simba's best BA was .289, in 2012 with 166 plate appearances. At this point in his career, he is a .261 BA and a .310 OBP player. Give Swanson 6 years in the majors and then compare them. Goodness... People want to jump all over a player because he isn't the second coming of Trout.

    Yes, Swanson is struggling right now. Seems normal to me. And I am finished with this topic.

    Kemp moving up in AS votes for OFers.

    He's behind Heyward(3rd).

    I thought they changes the way votes were cast and that votes were cast by position, not an OFer in general.

    Newcomb was scratched from his scheduled start Wednesday at Triple-A Gwinnett so he could be ready to pitch Saturday for the big league team. Matt Wisler will also be brought up from Triple-A to start the other game of the doubleheader, which has separate admission and start times of 1:05 p.m. and 6:05 p.m.

    Only 5 MLB qualifiers have lower OPS than #Braves' Swanson (.577), including pair of Royals w/ lowest 2: Escobar (.424) & Gordon (.519)

    #Braves' Sean Rodriguez is hitting off tee, taking grounders -- no timetable, but Snit thinks he might play in couple months.

    Snit said #Braves' Garcia was checked out by hand specialist today and isn't injured seriously, could play if had to and available to PH

    If Swanson lasts 6 years he would have lasted longer than either Frenchy(3 years = 2 half seasons), both hit far better than Swanson has been hitting, 1st year(2005, 70 games), .300, last year with Braves(2010, 80 games hitting .250)

    Jason 5 years hitting .277 1st season(2010),. last season with Braves 2014 .271. low year, 2011 .277.

    6 years would be a stretch.

    I'm done talking about Swanson and his continually weak batting foundation. And his swagger in the field does little to over shadow his MLB leading SS errors. Also done talking about Colon and Dickey and what is probably a waste of 20mil+.
