Please trade Maholm or replace him in rotation 


The guy has nothing stuff wise.  No swings and misses.  He's a guile only pitcher.  Wish we would have moved him for a RP before his value declines.

I avoid watching his starts if possible. He helped last year but he needs to move on after the season.

I guess this is the GTT for today, but our double plays is an issue.

This is why when talk is about moving Medlen to the Pen I scratch my Head...... move Maholm out if Beachy is ready. I hope the Braves can get another starter and and relief help, the hitting should be better the second half.

As much of a Homer for the Braves as I have been for 5 decades, this years team has some glaring problems. Take away the 12-1 start and the Club could well be in Second place in the East.

True enough, all I was trying to say is since the great,terrific,exhilarating start the Braves have been a .500 type club. Even though the Phils and Nats have big problems if they get hot or make the correct trade the Braves are very catch able unless they play better or add some help also. Medlen may just be arguably the best pitcher in the Rotation, him or Minor. Moving Medlen is a horrible idea. For the record, that 12-1 start may not be enough to win the East, hope so but not sure.

Maholm has been very disappointing lately but, as mad as I am at his poor performances, I don't want him injured. An injured pitcher cannot be used in the bullpen or a trade. I just hope management puts the best 3 pitchers in the rotation to join Minor and Teheran, be it Hudson, Wood, Beachy, Medlen or Maholm. Then trade for 1 or 2 solid relievers and play strong. Of course, it's all meaningless if the offense can only score 1 run like yesterday's debacle.
