Braves Acquire Stefan Gartrell

The Braves have acquired Triple-A outfielder Stefan Gartrell from the White Sox for cash considerations, according to Kevin Goldstein of Baseball Prospectus (via Twitter).  The 27-year-old has been with the White Sox since 2006, when he was taken in the 31st round of the amateur draft.

In 177 career Triple-A games, Gartrell owns a .258/.318/.460 slashline with 32 homers.

This move will put the Braves over the top against the Phillies.

Why is it any time a move like this is made there are a million comments like ^ here? It seems everyone is looking for a cute comment and trying to be funny, but, it’s been said like a million times already.

Insert catty/douchey response here.

Wait a minute dad, you’re not supposed to post cute comments on a comment section on a blog website?

If the comment is actually funny or original then yes its good blog fodder. Your comment was, well, neither. (Yawn)

Why is it that people choose to complain about those comments? Who knows?

I wasn’t really complaining. Just stating an observation.

Because they are stupid, annoying and repetitive.

I was going to write something to this effect, but you beat me to it. Well played sir.

This lasted way too long.

True fact: The name of the man who Johnny Cash shot in Reno (just to watch him die) was named Stefan Gartrell. No relation.

Was that Johnny Cash Considerations?

He’ll hit a lot of homeruns but don’t expect a whole lot else. A serviceable 4th outfielder/spot starter.

Should be a good addition…

As a Sox fan – Kid had a nice spring. Deserves some respect

Nate McLouth had a nice spring too. Deserves everyone’s insults…..

Speaking of dead horses……Heyward’s hitting 6th again today.

Remember the Cosby Show episode where Denise tried to sew Theo a Stefan Gartrell shirt?

Sorry. I do that sometimes.

You know, I had to do a double take reading the title because I thought it said at first glance “Braves Acquire Stefan Urquell”. Kinda funny & ironic that he got traded from Chicago.

I don’t get it. What’s with the quotation marks and, well, the comment in general?

4 years 4 months ago

Oh, I see. You don’t even care about our hometown BLURB, do you?

And walk away…

Why not bat him 3rd, 4th, or 5th then?

So you think it is fine to give Mclouth 50-60 more PA’s than Heyward?

You don’t want to encourage a hitter to get on base?

Don’t mind Brandie, she’s a soccer player who thinks she knows something about baseball.

I’m all switching Heyward and McCann around.

Mate, I wasn’t complaining about it. Just made a ‘dead horse’ joke because it was referenced above.

However, having Alex Gonzalez following arguably the best hitter on the team doesn’t make too much sense. Once they completely lose faith in McLouth, Heyward will be moved up.

Damn, meant to reply to your Heyward batting 2nd post…..
