Thomson, Sosa, The Braves Board, and Phone Calls

Hello to all my readers out there, I apologize for the lack of updates in the past few days. I really don’t have much to talk about in depth this time either but I did want to mention a few things.

First I want to make sure everyone knows about my other web page, The Braves Board. The news section on the front page is being kept up to date now. All we need now is members to get the discussion boards going.

Second, I just want to give me thoughts on trading John Thomson. I am really split on this issue. Jorge Sosa has had a bad spring, but if he can shape up, he is too valuable (given his salary) to give up. On the same note, Thomson has shown to be a solid starter as well. Thomson seems like he would wasted in the bullpen, but given the fact he could add some velocity to his fastball, he actually might fit well into the closers roll. And, if we did trade one of them, it really seems like it would be Thomson, and I don’t think the closers that have been mentioned are a good return. The other rumor, Craig Wilson, isn’t a bad trade, but do we need him? I would rather trade for him than have Brian Jordan the backup first baseman, but I think overall I would rather keep Thomson and use James Jurries.

Finally, I got a call today from someone in the Braves front office. I wasn’t home, and wasn’t able to get in touch with her after I got the message. I am assuming that they are going to want me to come join the team, as a coach obviously, since my playing days are over. While I will continue to update this blog, I just want you to know that the team comes first.

Obviously I don’t really think they are calling me to join the team. I also doubt they are calling in relation to either of my web pages. I honestly am not sure why they are calling. I don’t think I have entered any contests and the last I checked they don’t just randomly give away season tickets. So, I will let you all know once I find out exactly what its all about, but until them I am really anxious to find out, I just hope I can sleep tonight!

Oh yea, one more thing. If you have any links that you would like me to put over on the right let me know. It doesn’t matter what they are, as long as they fit in one of the categories. All I ask is that you link both of my sites (I will add your link to my other site as well) from the page you ask me to link too (provided you have control over the links. If you don’t, feel free to recommend the page still, I’ll still add it) If you want to suggest one, you can either post a comment to any of my posts or email. My contact info is on the right. Feel free to IM me as well, but I must warn you I have a horrible short term memory and I am easily distracted, so there is a good chance it might never get done if that is the only way you contact me.

What should the Braves do with John Thomson?
