    Why would we do that?

    This must be an admission that Salcedo isn't going to be a MLB player.

    Not liking this deal.
    Warm feelings guy!

    If it's for more than $7MM in AAV then I don't like it.

    Don't like it at all... Even if it is a good deal, would want that money going into Heyward/Upton/Minor

    Agreed, an empty batting average with avg to below avg defense shouldn't be too hard to replace.

    Apparently a 3 year deal with a 4th year team option. We already had him under team control for three years, so it sounds like we only locked in his remaining arb years, with a team option for his first free agent year. I agree, it better be for low money. And yes this speaks volumes about the dearth of any legitimate 3rd base prospects in our system.

    Meh and eh. I'm not "happy" about it, but I'm not against it. He just better start hitting more! Though he is 2-2 today.

    Chip and Joe just stated that they had heard that Chris and his agent approached the team recently about an extension. Hopefully that means it is a very team friendly contract. Apparently it is for the years 2014-2017 with a team option for 2018. We had him under control through the 2016 season, so this would buy out his last three arb years, one free agent year, plus the option for one more year.

    Chris is making $4.75MM this year, so maybe $6MM in 2015, $7MM in 2016 and $8MM in 2017 with a $8MM team option in 2018? I would hope it wouldn't be any higher than that.

    CJ loves it here, and wants to be here. He's a solid piece on a championship caliber club going forward, what's wrong with keeping him. I'm sure it's pretty team friendly and I will take intense competitors that want to be a Brave like him any day of the week?

    Going forward, who is going to be more productive at his position without depleting the farm or costing considerable $ in FA?

    Assuming it's team friendly, it shouldn't be too tough to move him if needed.

    But I figured we'd be looking at TLS at 3b and Perazza at 2b in 2 years

    3b position is the worst I ever remember it. No good fa and not a lot of prospects in the high levels of the minors. Don't like it at first, but when you look at the test of the 3b in the majors you see why wren did it.

    Until I see details, I'm going to pray Uggla forfeited the rest of his years over.
