I commend your excellent post, JB. Reyes is no great shakes and I am very surprised Escobar was not used as part of a package so that the Braves could continue their decade-and-a-half trend of fleecing every other MLB team for their prospects (Jason Schmidt and Jermaine Dye the only exceptions).
Of course, if Pete Mac is going to keep "Narroning" Arroyo out there for 125 pitches, we may as well trade him for a crate of rotten tomatoes, because they will likely pitch just as well.
Thank you for the compliments. Once Saltalamacchia was traded, I had very little interest in trading Arroyo to Atlanta, unless a trade starting with Kelly Johnson could be discussed.
