    Would You Make This Trade?

    Braves Get:

    Homer Bailey
    Rheal Cormier
    Todd Coffey

    Reds Get:

    Tim Hudson
    Jarrod Saltalamacchia
    Adam LaRoche

    Would you do it and do you think the Braves would?

    Replace Bailey with Cueto or Wood and we have a deal. No offence but they don't get Bailey unless we get cash as well.

    You have to give up something to get LaRoche in the deal as well.

    No way....Hudson makes way too much money for the type of year he had last year. Salty is coming off a down year. LaRoche appears to be worth only a young back end of the bullpen arm on the market.

    If Bailey is going to the braves then James, Salty, and one of those young SS they have in the system is a must. I want no part of Hudson's contract and im not high or LaRoche even if hes got his ADD under control.

    Plus the Braves arent going to be asking the 2005 value of Hudson and Salty and not the 2006.

    IIRC, Hudson is scheduled to make 32 million over the next 2 years. I just don't think he'll produce at a level that would make that good investment.

    maybe you could get the Braves to pick up some of the contract even if it took throwing in another "prospect."

    What has Votto proven above AA? I think Votto will be a good player, but LaRoche is much better right now. That's not even being fair to Votto.

    ouch. new to the board and just saw this. That's a pretty horrible trade idea. Although, the idea of adding another catcher is pretty tempting...............

    I still think it's a good idea, if that counts. Hudson has 1 bad year and people say that he is done. I didn't realize he was making 16 million per the next 2 years, but if Atlanta paid part of that, say 10 of the 32 million, I would jump on it.
