The Braves released the 26 year old OFer today. He had a line of .255/4/42 in 115 games this year.

Anyone have any confidence he could find some productivity in GABP?

Theres a reason he went from being untouchable to being traded for Vazquez to being released after just 1 season with the Braves... He's not as good as everyone thought.

Same as when he was with the Yankees and some people wanted him. N.O.

I was about to bring that up at soon as I saw this thread. I was there with a buddy who was a Braves fan which made the play all the better. :thumbdown to Melky!

320, thanks for bringing up that video. I was also at that game and it was one of my favorite Reds' memories of this summer and how I will forever remember the "Melk Man." :thumbup:

OTOH, he would immediately become the new RZ Whipping Boy tm. So at least he'd provide some value!

Ah, the RZ whipping boy of the year nominations: Gomes, OC, and Stubbs early on, with an honorable mention of Bruce early on too.

He has good bench value, but if he's your everyday center fielder (let alone left fielder), you're probably in trouble. Signing Cabrera to play every day would be the equivalent to signing Taveras. Sure, at his best, he's not bad--but his ceiling isn't very high, and his floor is very low.

No current or future baseball player should ever be compared to Taveras. I get a strong urge that nobody, and far and away not Melky could contribute less to a team than our beloved WillyT

Suppose that Cabrera threw out Hanigan at the plate. Would it have been scored 8-8-2?

As far as putting him in a Reds uniform next year, Jabba The Hut would be a better option on the field and in the batters box.

Halfway down page 2 and so far unanimous agreement on Redszone...send this one to the archives! :beerme:
