It is going to be tuff to be a Braves fan this year. Unless the team they are fielding this
can produce runs, the Braves will be in the seller of the National League East Division.
How much of the millions Hart saved on BJ Upton salary will end up in Hart's pocket.
The players that have gotten in trade just does not justify what Hart has done.

Welcome to an NL East ruled by the Washington Nationals! They should win the division by 20 games minimum and be able to start resting players around the All Star Break.

Shocked they would trade Kimbrel. They brought Hart in to get the team ready for the new stadium, he must of thought they wouldn't be able to re-sign Kimbrel.

When the new stadium is done they will just raise ticket prices. They already signed Freeman. With the money they originally spent on Uggla and BJ . I am sure they could have found some money to keep Kimbrel. Dumping BJ was what they wanted to do but at the cost of Kimbrel and what they got in return is just plain bad. Have to say..........................DOWN WITH HART

At least your GM is dumping salaries and prepping for the future. Our GM is holding onto 2008 and not letting ANYONE go. In 2011/2012 the Phillies could have dumped all old fixtures and started re-stocking their minor league system, instead, they started giving contract extensions. They are a total mess. Down with Reuben Amaro!!!!!
