    Braves after Santana?

    Thought this needed its own thread.

    Wish we would've done this when we weren't so obviously desperate. Going to have to give him a two or three year deal to make it work, I imagine. Either way, I am glad they are no longer ignoring the problem.

    Was about to post the same thing.

    1 year would be dumb, if they give up the pick, might as well do 4-5 years.

    Doesn't make sense to give up a pick for a one year deal anyway IMO.

    At this point, this move is a no-brainer.

    Remember, though, the Braves are already getting a pick for McCann which is number 32 so in essence they would still have a first round pick

    If the Braves are willing to sacrifice that pick (shudder), I would say there is a strong possibility of a match here given Santana's preference for a one-year deal to boost value.

    Apparently the Orioles and Blue Jays offered $13MM.

    I bet the Braves could come in between $10-11MM, maybe lower if incentives are bundled in.

    Yeah, I don't give a crap about the pick, if they need him to help the team, especially when they already have a pick six spots later.

    Sure but what use is giving up a pick for 1 year really do?

    Just sign him to a 3-5 year deal if they give up a pick.

    Well, I guess you could hope that Santana has a great year and then earns another first round pick in the offseason.

    Yeah it's sad though that it took injuries to three potential starters (Minor, Medlen, Beachy) before they attempted to fix the issue.

    Because getting one starter fixes having 3 others go down. They are only looking at this because medlen is likely done.

    Why would somene in the royals organzation know what the braves are doing?

    Also it is taking all my patience not to insult the debbie downers cheering these injuries as if any of this other than beachy was predictable.

    Obviously getting Santana for instance doesn't fix three holes, but relying on the likes of Freddy Garcia and Gavin Floyd were bad indicators if anything injury wise happened to the rotation.

    Please don't act like Beachy potentially getting hurt again is a surprise. Medlen has had surgery as well. Minor has been healthy for the most part in his career, but the other two have a history of dealing with these ailments. Not too mention Gavin Floyd coming back from the same surgeries as the aforementioned pitchers. Stop me when you detect the pattern...

    I don't think anyone is cheering about this, or happy at all—especially with its meaning that Medlen's entire career might be in jeopardy—that the Braves are in this position. But, as @thethe said in the other thread, the Beachy issues were predictable and the Braves shouldn't have depended on his successfully returning to fill one of the top four spots. Instead, having Beachy as one of the contingency plans, and slotting a better / more reliable starter ahead of him, would have ameliorated a lot of the issues that have arisen with the Minor and Medlen injuries.
