Fair point. Wainright has blossomed.
(Wainright went in the deal for JD Drew, who then proceeded to finish 6th in the NL MVP voting during his one year in Atlanta before he walked as a FA.)
So that makes 2 guys whom the Braves reluctantly traded who then blossomed elsewhere.
The wash-outs still far outnumber the subsequent stars.
