I love the trade because:
1.Chipper, Hudson, and McCann all hurt=this season down the drain
2. Teixiera unsignable so, Kotchman+Prospect>2 first round draft picks
3. Kotchman at 1.45 mill/year (is that right) is a bargain
4. Losing Teixiera and Hampton's 15 mill after this year sets us up for a potential big offseason
Although Tex is a great player, I think the trade had to be made for the future of the franchise.
Best of luck to Mark and the Angels, who I think will win the world series.
How bout some thoughts from other Braves fan or MLB fans in general.............
