The point is tons of talented players get traded each year, Mat Latos was traded it happens and its no big deal. The Braves got what they saw as a short term power upgrade at SS and got his replacement in another SS prospect and a LHP prospect. You act like the Braves were fed up and just gave him way when its not the case since they get 3 MLB players in return.
