Ender yes, Camargo no. There's never been a reason to trade Camargo. The manager having something against him is not a legit reason to trade him.
If Snit really had something against Camargo, wouldn’t Charlie have started these last two games?
If Snitker didn't have something against Camargo, wouldn't Johan have started 3-4 times per week all season like Snitker himself said he would in spring training?
Charlie is going to be saved as a pinch hitter because that's his role defined by Snitker. Snitker has said last year and this year he thinks Charlie performs better in this role. Even though he had about an .850 OPS in the middle of the season as a starter due to injuries last year.
Charlie has performed better in the PH role this year.
I am not sure if Snit really had something against Camargo or if he is just a "here's my lineup so I don't have to think very much guy"
For a while it was more of a “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” situation. Braves regulars were all hitting, Johan couldn’t crack the lineup. Hate it for him but it was what it was. As a professional, you still go about preparing and being ready for your chance.

that's very true about being ready when your time comes, but I don't completely by that if it ain't broke don't fix it.
individual players did go through slumps.... older players have proven that they wear out over the summer and hit a wall... players playing every single day increases the risk of injury because their bodies never get a break.
so yeah I get that that might have been his mentality, but that does not mean it was right. maybe it was… But if Donaldson and Markakis and Swanson break down as the season goes on then maybe it wasn't
I think Camargo can regain it if he gets a legit chance to play
I have been more on moving some of these young pitchers who have failed and who knows if its too late to move them now, what value does Touki and Wright have now?
Hoard these young arms and they do not get it done, now maybe they might get better for now cannot trust them
I think you'd be quite surprised at the value Wright has. Touki is another story.
I would be interested in how other teams GM's view Wright - Braves fans and those around the local area have been indoctrinated to how we have this great surplus of arms
How long do you wait for results
Wright might have some value but he is such a walk machine - maybe he might get better
There are some who think Touki is a prize arm in waiting but we have seen plenty of walks and poor outings this yr and we can only go by what we see right now - this Braves team is ready to step up now, this is not a rebuild anymore thank goodness
We need guys who can help now. It does look like Gausman is getting straightened out finally, he might help down the stretch. Two plus good months is better than nothing I hope he can do what he did last yr down the stretch
Camargo was injured starting last season but when he did get back he was very good although it took about 2 months to get going. He did show more power early with more regular playing time but the average never really escalated until after two months of mostly regular playing time.
