Evan Gattis, on the left, has been playing more LF and doing less catching   At the last caravan I went to, a few blog readers told me they missed the inbox entries, so I'll do my best to catch up. :) If you're unfamiliar, I answer Bowman's inbox Q&As as if anyone cares about my opinion. Here's a link to his most recent inbox, with the questions and my answers below...   How could the Braves let a fan favorite and amazingly versatile player like Martin Prado go? -- Daniel R., Clintwood, Ark. I can't talk about this anymore. I'm sorry; I am exhausted. Love you Marteen. I hope you prove all these jerks who say you aren't worth $12 million SUPER WRONG. With the Braves acquiring Upton and trading Prado, who will be the leadoff hitter? And what are the plans if that doesn't work? -- Paul S., Wilmington, Del. Knowing Fredi we'll have 6 or 7 different guys leading off over the course of the season, so I'm not too worried about it. Just get on base, drive in runs. What's the latest on the progress of Brian McCann? The last word was that he might begin throwing in mid-January. -- Curtis H., Richmond, Va. All the reports I've read make it sound like Mac wants to be ready to go for opening day. I just want him healthy for the duration of the season, and I want him to stay in Atlanta until he wants to retire. Most Braves friends I've spoken with hope he'll have a good enough season for the Braves to offer him a decent contract. I certainly don't want to see him in pinstripes next year. There is a lot of buzz talk about Evan Gattis' offensive numbers in the Minors. What about his defensive skills? And is there a chance for him to make the roster this year? -- Josh Y., Phenix City, Ala. I've only seen him catch, and with our outfield set for at least the next 3 years, I doubt we'll be seeing him unless there's an emergency. Reed Johnson can play all three outfield positions well.
