    I think Burrell to the Braves is less likely now, but I am kinda want Marcus Thames now. Bill James projects almost the same numbers between the two, and I think Thames can be cheaper, maybe a minor-league deal.

      Why would Thames only command a minor league deal coming off a .288/.350/.491 season with 12 HR in only 237 PAs?Sure he’s a brutal defender, but he hits lefties better than Jonny Gomes, and Gomes is making $1.75MM this season. No reason to think Thames commands much less, if any.

      Besides, why would you want Thames full-time? He’s only particularly good against left-handed pitching.

        How much interest have you seen for Thames? None, since no one has showed interest in him.

        If you can read clearly, why didn’t you see my “maybe a minor-league deal” statement? It was a start, because no one will start off with giving him a major-league deal.

        And, where did I say anything about Thames playing full-time? I was referring to a platoon/bench player.

      I think that the Braves will sign either Eric Hinske or Matt Diaz and no other outfielder/PH type is even up for consideration.

    I like the idea of Adam Jones roving Center in Chavez Revine. And since this is a rumors site we can entertain such a notion. So my question is what do you think we would have to give Baltimore for Jones?
