While I’d like to see him stay with the Braves, he is arguably the 3rd best player on the team at this stage in his career. How good will he be in 4 years, or 6? All these players are overpaid, and the teams make so much money from TV, etc. that they could give fans a break on ticket prices and $8 beers. Average Joe Fan can’t afford to go to many games anymore.


Let him go he isn’t worth what the Braves offered him. I guess since the Braves eon the World Series he thinks he walks on water.
