The braves also traded away Rob Bell and Bruce Chen.
They also know when to fold them.
CR's K rates are much better as a reliever, and throws MUCH harder in that role to. A well defined role for him should allow him to flourish. I think he was waaaaay overated as a starter, but he couldn't seem to get that through his head.
excellent trade for the reds, and a good aquisition for the Braves if Chris accepts his role in the pen.
