Arrrgh. As if releasing Tom Glavine weren’t enough, the Braves today also traded away three highly regarded prospects for Pirates outfielder Nate McLouth.
They traded away pitchers Charlie Morton and Jeff Locke and outfielder Gorkys Hernandez.
I’ve photographed all of these guys in recent years, most recently Locke at Myrtle Beach.
I hate it when the Braves trade away these guys . . .
