Braves Acquire Kotsay
« Topic Start: January 12, 2008, 06:15:12 PM »

The A's and Braves have reached a preliminary agreement on a deal that would send Mark Kotsay to Atlanta for Joey Devine.
The Braves will be on the hook for just $2 million of the $7.375 million that Kotsay is owed, but to get him that cheap, they had to part with a very talented young reliever. We're quite skeptical that Kotsay will be a useful regular, though he should be an upgrade over Josh Anderson for the short-term. Jordan Schafer still might get his chance come July.

Thats a big hole in CF Kotsay is going to have to fill.  Can he do it?  Is he dangerous?  Cooooooold Bloooooooded......

Kotsay's OK, but he'll probably be the guy we'll worry the least about in their regular lineup.

I was thinking, we may actually have the best bench in the NL East (blog idea for you :D).
