Unhappy Atlanta Needs A Slugger Big Time!

Atlanta is hurting for a big time hitter. Chipper and Andruw Jones aren't enough. Atlanta ranks first in pitching in the N.L. and tenth in hitting. They will never make it to the World Series batting tenth in the league.

I would consider trading Jason Marquis or even Mark DeRosa for a good hitter. I would hate to give up DeRosa, because I think he is going to be a good hitter consistently. I realize these guys wouldn't be enough for someone like Jason Giambi. I don't think Oakland wants to trade Jason anyway.

Who would you recommend the Braves getting. How about first baseman Tony Clark of Detroit or Greg Vaughan from Tampa. Maybe McGriff would come back to Atlanta. Regardless it is imperative that Atlanta get a slugger. Ken Caminiti just won't do it. Brian Jordan can't do it or B.J. Surhoff.

How about Ruben Sierra of Texas? I'm grasping for someone. Atlanta has the money and young talent. But winning this year is more important than winning next. Might not be a 2002 season with the impending contract renewal coming up.

I totally agree. Atlanta is missing that marquee hitter - if they receive that, they will have much better chances in September.
