Ramblings about the Braves by True Braves Fans
Yunel Escobar was traded to the Toronto Blue Jays as part of a 5-player deal that included Jo-Jo Reyes in exchange for two minor leaguers and short stop Alex Gonzalez. Details, reactions, and more, can be found via links in the twitter feed. I’ll be posting my thoughts on the trade soon (probably this weekend.)
The game is on right now, going into the bottom of the 5th. Braves lead 3-1. Reyes is on the mound and I have to say he looks pretty good. Only allowed a run, a one-out homer to Bobby “Bing” Crosby in the first, on 6 hits and this point and he has stuck out 6.
I am glad the Braves are on their longest home stand of the season. They need to string together some wins and (crap, Brown just scored, 3-2) get into the lead in the division while New York is struggling. Everyone knows the Marlins will not sustain their hot start so we need to (and now they have taken Reyes out of the game) put some distance on the field.
Back to watching the game.
