It's the Hot Stove League, Frank Wren. And all you get is a rock.


There's a phrase that goes through my head this time of year when the Braves are working the Hot Stove League: "All I got was a rock."
That's what Charlie Brown said in It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown when he and the Peanuts gang went trick-or-treating. The rest of the gang got candy. All Charlie Brown got was a rock. Today the Braves traded pitcher Javier Vazquez to the Yankees for Melky Cabrera and some prospects. Another year, another rock.
Frank Wren has shown about zero as a general manager. He traded Jeff Francoeur for R**n Church. How did that deal work out? He signed Derek Lowe, who underperformed all last year.
And now Vazquez gets traded to the Yankees for a lesser bat.
Another year, another rock.
