Braves release Glavine, trade for a solid bat

I guess the Braves ain't messing around. They released 305 game winner Tom Glavine today and traded minor leaguers for Nate McLouth.

Braves GM Frank Wren is doing an interview right now during the game broadcast, and he says McLouth will be the club's new lead off man. He also says Tommy Hanson has been called up and will start Saturday, which The AJC has a piece on.

Said Wren: "We just needed, we needed something to kind of jump start us into the last four months of the season."

updated from the comments: "I sure will miss Glavine's dazzling personality and one pitch arsenal."

Go Braves! Is it still OK to do the "Tomahawk Chop"?
