Retire old Leaders, Pass the torch to the young

Posted on: August 16, 2008 9:28 pm
The Braves should rebuild around the pitching staff for next year.  Tommy and Johnny I can see that their age is catching up to them already.  I know the two where the young breed of the 90 to the present team.  Both went through up and down on the team from the late 80's.  In the late 80's the braves were that worst team in baseball at one point in time and turn it around to with all those pennant and one world series title.  I think it is time to retool again an start a new division title starting in 2010.  Let's see how the brave retool in the off season.  I will still cheer for the braves this seaon even though the team is in double digits behind the division.

Retire old Leaders, Pass the torch to the young

I've been a Braves fan since the 70's.  My first baseball memory is Aaron hitting #715 to break the home run record.  So I've seen a lot of good and bad Braves teams.

Yes it's time to rebuild.  But someone please help me understand what the Texiera trade did.  I know they wanted to get something before he became a free agent but it seems as if they got crap.

Jair Jurgens seems to be the only good young pitcher on the roster.  Hopefully there are more in the minors.

I say they need to trade Chipper while he still has value to get some good young pitching.  I know it's sacreligious to get rid of Jones but something needs to be done.

I don't think that the current ownership really cares about winning.  Just stay good enough to get fans to come to games is their plans.
