Yeah because Bourn is such a great leadoff hitter. Top 10 in the NL in strikeouts for a leadoff hitter. Wow. 2nd half average of .220 or there abouts. I'm so happy Bourn isn't coming back.
I'm thrilled to have B.J. Upton. I really think we've yet to see the best of him. He's going to have more lineup protection this season than he's ever had with the Rays.

I'll just post it in this trade but the Braves traded Tommy Hanson to the Angels for Jordan Walden. This is a great trade for the Braves. We dump Hanson and his salary and get another dominate bullpen arm. Great trade by Wren!

It is going to be so strange not seeing Chipper out there. It seems like just a couple of years ago when he was a rookie. Damn time begins to fly when you get old.

I have no memory of the Braves without Chipper Jones. Reality really hasn't hit me yet. But it will when I see a Braves team out there next March without #10.
