    I heard that we have interest in a high upside arm that might be available in the Mexican leagues, and are willing to part with Freeman to acquire him along with a token of appreciation for letting use have Julio Franco in 2001-2002.

    Oh, you KNOW that is coming. They'll mention his problems with BJ and how it was actually Heyward being a hater and not BJ being a bucket of suck.

    The only way any of this bull**** could be defended is if we win the World Series in 2017 and 2018. We'll see.

    No. Freeman is whit--I mean a good teammate and a leader.

    lol.

    What makes this deal even more awesome is that Shelby was yanked from the starting rotation this past season.

    Now that the #braves have traded Heyward, Justin Upton could be next, with #Mariners a strong suitor.

    Braves acquired RHP Shelby Miller and RHP Tyrell Jenkins from the Cardinals for OF Jason Heyward and RHP Jordan Walden.
    The rebuild in Atlanta is apparently underway. Miller took a step back in 2014 after a strong rookie season in 2013, but he is under contractual control through 2018 and owns a promising 3.33 ERA in 370 career major league innings. Jenkins, meanwhile, carries six years of club control. Heyward is currently scheduled to become a free agent following the 2015 campaign. Nov 17 - 12:26 PM

    I know people are upset right now, but when you calm down and the smoke clears, a few things become evident.

    Let's face it, we had to move Heyward. He wasn't re-signing here, and we weren't outbidding anyone for him on a long term deal.

    I know we had dreams of getting a huge Teixera like haul from someone, but Heyward has 1 year left on his deal, and he hasn't lived up to his hitting potential yet. I think we're valuing him more than the league at this point.

    Cool, a minor league pitcher with a history of shoulder problems. That inspires a lot of confidence.

    That would be the 'Braves Way' though.

    So JS, Bobby, and to a certain degree Hart (although he wasn't apart of it) think it is 1988 it appears and stockpiling as many high upside arms as possible and try to build this thing from the ground up?

    Except take Heyward and Upton out of this equation and where is our Gant, Justice, etc?

    Hahahaha what idiots. Heyward and miller swap isn't worth it alone. Throwing in walden is beyond idiotic. This team doesn't care. Simple as that. Say what too want. They don't.

    Bummed, but not shocked. If the Braves tried to sign him long term, but was not successful (as I'm seeing on Twitter), then you had to trade him. I hate to see him to go and I wish we could have gotten more, but that's the nature of baseball sometimes.

    I mentioned a few days ago, this could be an uncomfortable offseason. Sometimes, the changes you make are the ones that are the most uncomfortable. Brace yourselves, because I don't think the Braves are done dealing.
