If you see a name you don't recognize, then he's probably a minor leaguer, and you should look him up at The Baseball Cube. Also, I'm assuming Powell and Brower are players lost, because it looks unlikely that the Braves will re-sign either. I think the Braves may be mostly finished this offseason. The corner outfield spots are already better than they were this time last year (Raul Mondesi and Brian Jordan), leaving the only holes (minor ones) in the bullpen and at first base -- and that isn't really a hole, since LaRoche is adequate and the only thing missing is a backup for occasional days off. I'll post a projected 2006 payroll in the next few days. As it currently stands, I think it's under $70M.
