Reviewing Hart’s Trades: The Craig Kimbrel Deal

The Braves have been active in John Hart‘s first season at the helm to the tune of SIXTEEN TRADES! Sixteen deals involving major league talent going one direction or in both. Sixteen deals that include over 50 different players, a few draft picks, lots of cash, and two Uptons. It’s been friggin unreal to see what the Braves have done. With most of the season in our rear view, it’s time to start reviewing each…

Top 30 Prospects, Post-2015 Edition – …and One More!

(Hey guys, been a little while since my last post as life required some more of my time. Trying to catch up to my schedule over the next several days. Thanks for reading and your patience.)

Thursday Throwback – Jerome Walton

(This column used to be called Random Ex-Brave.) Jerome Walton is the Bush of ball players. I’ll explain. In 1994, Bush released Sixteen Stone. It spawned hits like “Everything Zen,” “Comedown,” and “Glycerine.” The latter became Bush’s most iconic song. It was certified platinum six times and just like that, Bush was one of the biggest bands in the world. However, subsequent follow-ups never quite made a similar impression. Razorblade Suitcase, released two years later,…
