I know. I know. I know. The Braves brought Glaus in here to provide a power-hitting first baseman.
Honestly, there is nothing I would rather have than just that, but unfortunately, I don't believe it will happen over the course of an entire season.
He may be great for the first few months of the season, but can anyone honestly say they expect him to be healthy for an entire 162-game season...anyone? Anyone? I didn't think so.
Looking at potential free agent 1B after this season, we may be able to find some potential players who could become available at the trade deadline—most notably Lance Berkman, Adam Dunn, Paul Konerko, Adam LaRoche (again), Derrek Lee, and Carlos Pena (not including bigger names that won't be free agents for another two seasons who may be traded, notably Adrian Gonzalez and Prince Fielder).
All of whose teams may not be in playoff hunts come the trading deadline.
The name that sticks out to me is Derrek Lee. So my Brave Prediction 5B: Derrek Lee is the Braves' 1B by the trade deadline.
