    Re: Bourn to Braves

    No top 50 prospects and best was Braves 9 prospect. Probably equivalent was Heisey + Boxberger and two lesser guys. Keep snoring Walt.

    It is odd that I have felt relieved with almost every trade that's gone down this year.

    At the prices players are costing this year, I'm very happy Walt hasn't pulled the trigger.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Sigh of relief here. I hope we survive the rest of the day.

    If our GM is basing a players trade value off of BA's, BP's, ESPN's prospect rankings, we're in trouble...


    And nice response... You copy/pasting that in pretty much every thread right now? Add something intelligent please.

    If that was the cost for 1 year of Bourne, I really do hope Walt keeps snoring.

    Heisey likely has more value to us going forward (with 5 more controlable years) than 1 year of Bourne.

    Re: Bourn to Braves

    Other than Matt Holliday, Bourn was the guy I've wanted the worst to add to our current lineup over the past few years. I've been saying he would be a perfect fit for us for two years. I wonder what our price would have been. Good for Atlanta. They've got a nice squad.

    Reds and Braves systems have been ranked similarly (#3 vs. #6 in latest BA). Also for discussion purposes, publication rankings are frequently used to compare and gauge general value (ie player X will require two Top 50 prospects) both on this board and in the national media.
