I think a lot of Chicago fans were saddened when this guy left Illinois. Fortunately, most Braves fans were overjoyed. And apparently, Derrek did pretty good for the Braves...well, on the Braves standard that is. But with Chipper hurt, the Braves needed an aging infielder who could hit quite a bit. And they got one.
Of course, the Phillies gave the Braves a slamming they'll never forget...but at least Atlanta has this guy to brag.
Tomorrow- A speedy outfielder for a struggling knockout team, in the AL East. And I had tickets to see him play again this month...but couldn't go.
