Braves general manager Frank Wren said today the Braves have notified the baseball agency that represents Rafael Furcal that they intend never to do business with them again....Reminded that Tellem's group of agents -- which includes well-established veterans such as Tom Reich, Adam Katz and Paul Kinzer -- is one of the biggest in baseball and represents many star players (including Francisco Rodriguez, Carlos Lee, Aramis Ramirez, Nomar Garciaparra, Jason Giambi and many more players), Wren responded, "When you can't trust who you're doing business with, you can't do business with them. It's plain and simple.''
I like Wren's strong stance on this, but at the same time their list of clients is very long and includes, among many others, Yunel Escobar and Pete Moylan. This doesn't bode very well for our ability to keep those guys and acquire other players that could help us in the future. Any thoughts?
