Hinske deal finalized

Written by Joe Lucia on .

But this...comes with a price. The deal for cornerman extraordinaire Eric Hinske is finalized at the low low price of $1 million, with incentives possibly making things worth $1.5 million. The deal is a good one, as it replaces Greg Norton on the bench with someone who can actually play the field. I analyzed the deal last week, and loved the deal. But as I mentioned in the opening, everything isn't all ponies, bunny rabbits, and pink cake. To make room for Hinske on the roster... ...BRANDON JONES WAS DESIGNATED FOR ASSIGNMENT. As anyone who's talked to me about Braves baseball for awhile can tell you, I love Brandon Jones. Coming into the 2009 season, I thought Jones should have been given a shot to start in left field for the Braves, or at least earn a spot on the bench. Instead, Garret Anderson was signed, had a horrible spring, an injury-riddled beginning of the season, and was a disaster when he was healthy. Meanwhile, Jones rotted away in Gwinnett, playing with no motivation and struggled as a result. I really hope Brandon gets claimed by another team, and gets a chance to earn a spot on a major league roster in 2010. As a former top prospect of the Braves, god knows he deserves at least a chance. God speed, and good luck Brandon. If your time in Atlanta is truly done, we will miss you.
