Don't mind taking a pass on Schierholtz

The Fox Sports rumor on Pagan has more possible upside to it, but like most all speculation in the hot stove press, gives no detail on the exchange required to seal the deal.

Oh well, it's still a while 'til Spring Training.

So, 4 year deal offered to Pagan. I'm wondering if Ruben is planning on offering Hamilton a 5 year deal or so for RF and having Dom/Ruf platoon in LF, with Mayberry and Nix as 4th Outfielder bench guys.

I actually think that'd be a pretty good bench. Third base will be an area of weakness, but a lineup vs RHP of:

Rollins
Utley
Hamilton
Howard
Chooch
Pagan
Brown
Frandsen/Galvis
Pitcher

Really isn't too bad, minus the 2-4 hitters all being Left handed.

LHP:
Rollins
Utley
Chooch
Hamilton
Ruf
Howard
Pagan
Frandsen/Galvis
Pitcher

really doesn't seem too terrible.

Easy 20 HR potential in Rollins, Utley and Ruf/Brown platoon, and 30 HR potential in Howard and Hamilton.

Good speed still in Pagan, Utley, Rollins, and Brown (just needs to work on his Baserunning skills).

Idk, if that were to happen, I'd be pretty content, so long as we add another RHP Setup man.

The teams that won in '08 & '09 was mostly put together by Wade & Gillick, not Amaro, athough he did aquire Lee and Lidge. But what has he done for this team offensively. The anwer is not much.

___________________________________________

Amaro brought in Lidge? news to me.

Also- he traded for Hunter Pence just two years ago when he felt the team needed some offense.

The problem DPat is that you have some bizarre ideas in your head and a timetable in which Amaro has to enact those bizarre ideas. When he doesn't you have a meltdown and lose your sh!t on here. It's silly.

I am not one of your fake sources but here is a scoop for you "You are fvcking ridiculous."

Looks like Braves will trade for Justin Upton which gives Braves some lineup. The Phil's have to get Hamilton and maybe Pagan to keep up with Nats and Braves.
