Braves Acquire Out-Maker Alex Gonzalez From Toronto Blue Jays

The Braves acquired Alex Gonzalez from the Toronto Blue Jays today. Yes, Gonzalez has power, as he has 17 home runs already this year. But, he also makes outs in over 70% of his plate appearances . . . not just this year, but for his career too. The Braves traded away Yunel Escobar, who is having a down year and has less power, but has a career .368 OBP. Sure, it's upsetting to see the Braves lineup get some additional power, but in balance, I'm actually pretty excited to see them add such a spectacular outmaker to their lineup. If this is the Phillies' chief rival's big mid-season addition, I'll take it.
