A Baffling Challenge Trade, and Andruw Sits

The AJC reports that the Braves have traded Macay McBride to the Tigers for fellow left-handed relief pitcher Wil Ledezma. Ledezma is 26, and thus far has shown slightly better control on the major league level, along with a greater propensity for serving up gopher balls. Their minor league numbers are essentially interchangeable — so much so that you wonder why we bothered, although maybe we’ve become a little too familiar with McBride’s act.

The clarion call for benching ‘Druw has been heard — Fast Willie is manning CF tonight.

    Andruw should know better than to draw the ire of the ‘Matic. The blog is mightier than the prentending-to-work-on-your-batting-at-home excuse. Good on Bobby for making that tough decision.

    Now I’ve got to look at that trade to decide if it means anything.

    I have posted my take on the trade based off of the little info I have available right now.

    As for the benching, ’bout time to put ‘druw on the pine.

    Oh yeah, nice blog!
    Go Braves
