If it makes you feel any better we did get one of the better relievers in MLB for him.

I had forgotten that Gallegos came from this trade. I was only remembering Shreve. That helps a little, but still......

Marcell is [expletive] raking.
.295 .383 .605 .988


Also, former Cardinals farmhand Donovan Solano learned to hit a baseball very, very well at 31 years old.

The Braves have an all around better lineup. Marcell has protection.

I came here to complain about Ozuna. [expletive]. I am pissed. I wanted this Ozuna on the team, not the dude we got.

So to add something mildly constructive.
Outfielders that we have dreamed on....
Arozarena and Garcia are not getting playing time and not hitting. Though very small sample sizes
Mercado- turned into a pumpkin and reminds us that it is time for the pumpkin spiced lattes (I hate those drinks more than I hate Ozuna hitting like a champ)
Pham stinks. (Eyes finally getting bad?)
Piscotty is doing ok 109 OPS+
Gritchuk is finally turning in that sports car (not a top of the line one, but a good one for a cheap team). 130 OPS+

So in the great decisions to keep outfielders- if you had said let's keep Gritchuk you would have won the prize.

Oh and how the bleep does Voit have 13HR and only 3 doubles. Yowzers. Good for him.

Pham's out with a broken hand.
Piscotty is what we expected him to be. I'm happy for Grichuk, but don't miss him.
I agree with Fat Bulldog--Ozuna's in a deeper lineup. But at least we'll have the highlight-reel play in LF. 8-[

I really don't miss any of them and I can see why all of them were moved. (except for Pham. I miss him)
(I thought that Piscotty was going to be better than he is.)
Remembering Ozuna in the OF made me smile.
