Yea, one bright spot in a dim season. I am afraid if they dont make some major changes then next year will be even worse.

Younger pitchers wouldnt hurt. They dont have to be super stars or anything. Look at Tampa Bay's starters. A rotation like that would have easily won the Braves the NL east.

I agree I mean I really like Smoltz and Glavine but its time for them to go to the Hall and get some younger talent in there. Hampton needs to be sent packing if there is any way the Braves can get out of that deal.

Agreed. Also, a solid utility infielder would be great. Because we all know its not a matter of if but when will Chipper go down and for how long.

If I'm not mistaken, Hampton's contract is FINALLY over.

Look at who the Bravos traded away and who they have left. Most of Hudson's salary will be paid from insurance. The team has some serious prospects and some serious money (@$50 million) to play around with. I guess we will find out just how good of a GM Wrens is.

Yea now that we don't have to pay Hampton millions of dollars a year for nothing we can use that money in a positive way.  I think Smoltz can be successful if they put him back in the bullpen as a closer or set up man.  We definitely need a solid rotation and definitely avoid all the injuries.  Is next year Bobby's last year?  I hear that Chipper won't play for anybody else and it may be the same with Smoltz and Glavine.

As for Chipper, the man is a beast.  He can sit out as many games as he wants with an average like that.

The Braves team didn't have to pay Hampton that much. He was injured most of the time he was under contract.

Well actually they would have had to cut the checks to him but the insurance company would have had to reimburse them for majority of it.

Was Hampton ever even scheduled to be 100% on the Braves payroll?  I can't remember which team it was, but I thought either the Marlins or Rockies were responsible for part of his salary his entire time in Atlanta.

I could be wrong.

It was a 6 year contract. The Braves were only going to be responsible for about $5 million total his first 3 years and the Marlins were responsible for about $30 million because of some deal with the Rockies. The Braves were supposed to have been responsible for the majority of the last 3 years but the majority of that was covered by insurance because of injuries.
