    they let tommy go for the new tommy hasnon who in a full season should be a key for success. I think the Vasquez trade was stupid, I guess they figure Hudson can be a factor. Hopefully Jones can stay healthy(I doubt it) McCann if healthy can be very very good. I hope Heyward is an instant success.

    I have to agree with MikePH, you don’t know what you are tilkang about. The Braves don’t have a history of trading good players in their prime. They make big trades less than most teams and they have been great because they retain their best players.Sure players leave and some bad trades are made on occasion. It happens, and to the Braves less than most teams. Jesus look how long they kept the core of that 90s team together; they just got older and fell away, now it’s time for a new team.
