Give GM Frank Wren credit. He shopped for Carlos Beltran but balked at giving up any of his Four Horsemen: Minor, Teheran, Vizcaino and Delgado. He wound up with a better fit -- Bourn -- who the Braves also control for next season, without yielding his top prospects.
Of course, to be truly accurate, The Verdooch needs to use the full name: The Four Horsemen of the Pichpocalypse. You're only half way to blog-level-cool, Tom.
By the way, the three Horsemen who pitched during the Giants series -- Randall Delgado, Arodys Vizcaino, and Mike Minor -- posted a combined line of 14 innings, 6 hits, 1 run, 3 walks, and 13 strikeouts, collecting two of the three wins in the series. As Chipper said, it's almost embarrassing how much talent keeps coming up through the Braves system.
This is the kind of embarrassment I enjoy.
