Nope, I disagree. We have guys in the Minors that actually produce.
Main thing is, ...he is there and he is going to get "his".
Bobby is giving him some serious kudos by batting him 4th in the lineup considering he hasnt done jack squat since spring training. All I remember him doing is dropping two consecutive foul balls in the outfield that cost us the game. Are there bonus stipulations in his contract for dropped balls or lost games via a non "give a shit" approach??
I dont even want to think about him. I honestly think it would be in the Bravos best interest to wave the guy...(and yup, pay him because no one else will)....and let the young hungry guys in AAA play out some games for us and actually get a base hit and catch a ball or two.

I guess this is a softball for Jonathan!
I think the signing is a good move by Wren. I am also thinking that Frenchy might now wish that he had taken that contract that was offered to him around the same time that B-Mac signed with us. That arbitration could get ugly. It could either motivate him or hurt his self confidence even further.
I would not even consider signing him to a major league contract though until he actually earns the spot. Just like Jonathan said, if Boras talks him out of it then good luck elsewhere Andruw.
It will probably come down to dollars and $ense. Tommy doesnt have much to bargain with at the moment...unless he wants to dangle an offer from a different team over Wrens head. In that case I think Wren will let him go. If, however, Tommy is willing to take an incentive based conctract (much like the one offered to Smoltz) then I think there is a good chance that he will remain in Atlanta.
I think its Tommy's call at this point.
I wouldnt even think about Sheets at this point. Our rotation is deep enough that he is not worth the risk. I would rather see that money go to a power outfield bat or a leadoff capable outfield bat.
