MLB Trade Deadline Follow-Up
Well, the Braves missed out on picking up Bronson Arroyo. He would've been a nice, innings-eating fourth starter who also happens to be signed (semi-affordably) for the next few years. The Reds were nuts...NUTS...to not jump on that offer of Escobar and Reyes. Royce Ring is a nasty, situational left-hander who'll come in handy...even though I was looking forward to seeing ex-Georgia Bulldog Will Startup in a Braves uniform at some point. But I really love the Octavio Dotel deal. If we're going to try and close this season out with a patchwork starting rotation, we need all the live arms in the bullpen we can get.
