He’s a 26-year-old rookie who I believe will have a great career. I think most Braves fans, myself included, will be sad the day that Brian McCann signs for another team; but the truth is that he probably will next year. Money will go towards pitching and extending our existing young players. Back to Gattis. He’s done everything the Braves have asked out of him and then more. He hit this fourth pinch-hit home run tonight and he continues to produce for the Braves, no matter when or where he plays. He’s just a pure hitter. I think he will be the Braves starting catcher next year with either Laird or Bethancourt backing him up. Think about this: A rookie who doesn’t get every day at-bats has a slash line of .254 AVG, 9 HR, 23 RBI’s, 16 R and 30 hits… with FIVE pinch hits, all extra bases hits… 20 of those hits are for extra-bases. He’s the real deal guys.
