    Sunday Night/Monday Morning Roster Move

    Assuming Acuna's deemed ready (even if that's in a couple days) I'd really love to see Flaherty be the guy DFAd rather than Santana. SO MUCH more versatility. Switch-hitter, speed to steal a base late, would allow you to utilize Culberson strictly on the dirt (potentially even platooning he and Johan for a bit).

    There's honestly no need for Flaherty to still be on the roster - not going to play in the OF, not going to play at 2B, doesn't run. He was already Snitker's last-resort LH pinch-hitter (Tucker usually getting the call before him), so we're already playing a man short in most situations. Leave Tucker in Gwinnett and let him get ABs - maybe he warms up a little when he gets some of them and you can use his pop off the bench or as a DH in a couple of interleague series later in the year.
    Has there EVER been a statement and question a certain someone should absolutely never have made and asked publicly more than...

    Kinda pathetic to see yourself as a message board knight in shining armor. How impotent does someone have to be in real life to resort to playing hero on a message board?

    It'll likely be Bourjos.

    Peanut Butter completely slipped my mind.

    Would still rather keep Santana and let Flaherty go while AA's juggling the roster - he more or less takes the place of both those guys.

    Speaking of Flaherty, it looks like (as of now) the Braves chose the wrong player of the two to release. Bautista has an OPS of .848 right now in New York. Flaherty is at .691.

    Bautista has a higher WAR of the two as well.

    Bautista had no place here either FWIW - his defense is going to kill you eventually. If AA wants a platoon partner for Camargo, go get Beltre - he won't let in more than he drives in. Was worth the try for nothing. but he doesn't improve this team.

    DFA both Flaherty and Bourjos when Acuna comes back up and bring Wisler up or Fried with him to give you another arm in the pen while you're getting 5-and-dive efforts from Julio, Anibal, and McCarthy.

    I like Santana as a bench bat right now. Versatile and he looks like he has improved some.
