    Am I the only one getting downright giddy about these Braves? I'm not sure if it's the slew of young talent or the versatility, but they're damn fun. The financial flexibility is great, as well. ;)

    Interesting. Would be nice if Camargo can handle significant OF innings. He handles LHP pretty well and may be a reliable replacement to Markakis when needed.

    It helps when you have a 21 year old MVP on your team for at least 6 years

    Might be replacing ender when needed not Neck. Really really needed to upgrade Duvall this winter.

    Steve Phillips on XM said Julio has gained 15 lbs and his fastball is now 93-94.
    Is this accurate?

    All of the noise seems to back this up, but I don't have empirical evidence to say so lol that'd be pretty incredible though.

    Yes, I'm Julio's PT. We first used test, and then stacked dianabol.

    My best friend has friends in Gwinnett that are close to Kimbrel. He lived in their basement when he played there before he came up to Atlanta. They say he really wants to come back. I have suspected this and AA knows this and is holding out until he can get him down to 1-2 years. Atlanta holds the cards.

    My wifeís boyfriend has a friend who works at Honeybaked Ham, and said friend overheard Kimbrel in line saying he wants to be a Brave.

    Screw Kimbrel. I want the ham at this point.

    How long does he have to sit out for the draft pick comp to go away?

    Kimbrelís best move may be to sit out half a year and sign a high value short term deal with a contender. If you are a contender paying Kimbrel 10 to 15 million for 80 games is better than paying the prospect cost to trade for a top tier closer at the deadline.

    You don’t have to believe it. No sweat off me. Just thought I’d pass the info along. Thank you.

    Would have to sit out until after the draft, so June 3. That's the only way I'd consider signing him.
