I guess Jeff Francouer has gone right? I can only offer you another Braves prospect, Chuck James. Good young pitcher. Or Joey Devine (future closer) should be up in september. He's got some nasty stuff.

There's a guy named Ray Liotta in the minors....I'd take a late round flier on him just because it'd be cool having a "Goodfella" on my team. :-D
