Braves acquire Matt Diaz


Recommended Posts

Fredi said there might be a platoon in RF but he hasnt decided yet right now hes just excited about having the "two headed monster" of Hinske and Diaz to call on

Hinske and Diaz are two very nice bullets to have in late innings. Diaz also gives the Braves a better RHPH option than Conrad. Hopefully this means Conrad will be used in those PH options that Gonzalez has been inexplicably using Lugo for, and Diaz and Hinske in late-and-close pinch hitting situations. Then you have Constanza for start-of-the inning PH and pinch running opportunities, and you still have Wilson left over for defensive replacement potential at 2B/SS/3B when there's a double-switch opportunity. And you have Ross has the best back-up catcher in the game.

This is a very, very good postseason bench.
