Wickman was designated for assignment after allowing Dunn's walk-off last night. He is the Braves' only closer and is 20-26 in save opportunities this season . . . but he is evidently a cancerous prima donna in the bullpen. Chipper,Andrew and Francoeur don't have very nice things to say about him.

Cox is willing to roll the dice to clean up his clubhouse. This type of attitude and authority is why Braves have been so good for so long. Good for him!
