I am not sure what else to call this other than a salary dump. I really do not see how Melky Cabrera provides anything in the way of an upgrade for the Braves outfield other than a warm spot on the bench. I could do that, for a lot less money!
The only thing I can hold out hope for is that new Braves prospect Arodys Vizcaino is the second coming of John Smoltz. I assume that is doubtful, but according to Rowland’s Office, landing Vizcaino was a win for the Braves. Here’s to future days, but I’m not holding my breath!
