The First Week's Lack of Work

I have to say that I'm surprised.  Maybe I am a little naive, but I thought the Braves would have done something by now.  WIth all of the money that has been freed up in the past months after the moves of some big money players like Mark Texiera, Tom Glavine, and  Mike Hampton, I expected the Braves to have made at least a signing.

Obviously, all of us Braves fans are hoping for a trade with the Padres for Jake Peavy.  There are only two things that I can think of that would explain the Braves inactivity. 

1.  They are hoping to get a deal for Peavy still, and therefore they aren't making any moves until they can plan accordingly.

2.  Agents have delayed the process because of negotiations.

If anyone has any thoughts or other reasons the Braves haven't done anything yet, let me know what you think.

The First Week's Lack of Work

The Braves organization is a joke.  That's why!!  Getting Texiera when they did was a ridiculous move and a complete waste of money.  Leo Mazzone was actually the glue that held that team together for so long, and once he left, they were done.  It will be a decade or more from this point before they ever make the post-season again.
