    I think EOF should be lumped in there as well as we didn't trade for him.

    To me, it's incredible that Wren can repeatedly go to the scrap heap and come away with treasure, and then go bid against himself for BJ Upton, and probably overpaid him by almost 50%. At the time, again, with Uggla coming off a yr in which he posted a .287/.369/.508, so I have more of a problem with the length of the deal than the dollar amount. The Lowe deal looks bad now, but in context, it wasn't awful. The Braves needed starting pitching bad, and Lowe was one of the top two options available. Kawakami was brutal. No lie. It's mystifying to me.

    Crazy to know our two highest paid starting positional players, are having historically terrible career years.

    They're both very good at their jobs. I prefer listening to Wren in interviews. JS found a way to pat himself on the back with every sentence.
