Braves are such a smart organization, they use these guys perfectly.
Look the Reds were obviously mad at Francisco he came to camp in bad shape, they got a good reliever for him, the trade was sensible.
But don't sell him too short. The Braves will make good use of his skills.
I was pro-Frazier back then. I didn't care for Juan defensively. The dingers were nice, but I didn't see him hitting for an average or drawing walks. He reminded me of Dunn without the walks. Probably a bad comparison...but that's always what he made me think of. I just think Johnson's the more well rounded complete player. I wish Juan luck....just not TOO much luck. :O)
Pitching and defense...anything else is gravy. Mmmm...gravy.
