And the Braves absolutely had to get rid of Yunel Escobar. The last guy I remember in the local clubhouse who was as unpopular as Escobar was John Rocker at his zenith.

Bobby Cox basically had 2 rules: (1) bust your butt, and (2) don't be a horse's rear end.
Escobar repeatedly failed on both fronts.
There is one major difference, patience. Heyward gets on base via the walk. Francoeur's OBA is dependent upon hitting his way on.
