One Year Ago Tomorrow...

Tomorrow is the one year anniversary of the Braves getting rid of the worst player on their team for the past four years, and shipping him to their division rival. Yes, July 10th, 2009 was when the Braves traded Jeff Francoeur to the Mets for Ryan Church and peace of mind to be named later.

In the last 161 games since that trade the Braves have posted a record of 94 wins and 67 losses, and to think that the Braves were 42-and-44 before they traded Francoeur.

Yes, there have been a lot of other changes, but that was a big one that needed to happen, and while many Braves fans still like Jeff Francoeur the person, they're glad that Jeff Francoeur the baseball player is not wearing an Atlanta uniform anymore.
