I remember reading last week that Braves fans were happy to be sending off Delgado in lieu of trading Teheran and Vizcaino. With as many pitchers coming back from TJ as there are these days, certainly worth the gamble for TheoJed.
I am not happy about this trade. This could definitely be a huge move for the Cubs if it pans out. It won't be a huge move for the Braves. I can only guess they think his arm won't hold up, because it seems like you have to shoot for more than a journeyman starter on a hot streak from your elite pitching prospects.
