The Braves should look to the future here. I would trade Smoltz for a couple of prospects. The Braves just need to forget about trying to win this season & start looking at next season & beyond. I invision the Braves with this starting line up for next season.
1B - Adam LaRoche or a free agent pick up there perhaps.
2B - Marcus Giles
SS - Edgar Renteria ( still has 2 or 3 more productive years I think)
3B - Wilson Betemit ( time to give this kid a full time job!) or platoon him with Chipper Jones. Chipper might be good trade bait as well. I think Chipper could also be moved to first base to platoon with LaRoche.
C - Brian McCann
RF - Ryan Langerhans or maybe a free agent signing
CF - Andruw Jones (still a young player. The Braves should lock him up. He is the Braves clean up guy & he saves you a run a game playing in CF.
LF - Jeff Francouer - is getting better. With Terry Pendleton as his hitting coach, he will learn to be more patient & take some more pitches.
The Braves main concern is pitching. With the exception of Hudson, they need a complete overhaul!
