When John Hart continued to restructure the Atlanta Braves in his image yesterday, I made it immediately known on social media, how we at Wayniac Nation felt.
But I hesitated writing a post until I slept on it. I didn’t understand trading away Jose Peraza at the deadline for Hector Olivera, but after seeing Ozzie Albies play in person (and snagging this interview with him) I understood that there was a bigger picture and a better prospect to fill the void left by Peraza.
So, I slept on it. And I still don’t understand it.
Why I don’t understand the Braves trade…
MLB’s awards season started last night with the Rawlings Gold Glove Awards announced. As with any award ceremony that presents gold statues — whether it’s the Oscars or some sort of music awards — there are going to be snubs.
Some of the usual suspects took home the award as expected. Yadi Molina snagged his remarkable eighth straight Gold Glove, while Nolan Arenado — the Sharknado — grabbed his third in a row. There were nine new recipients of the Gold Glove Award this year — which for baseball — is good. You can see the full list of winners at MLB.com.
See why Simmons was snubbed in the voting!
