Freeman to the Bravos

The day has finally come, Freddie Freeman gets his well deserved call up to play with the big boys in Atl! While this leaves Troy Glaus' season a bit in question, Bravos fans and the Bravos themselves are excited to see the potential future first base star in the bigs, finally. There are multiple rumors of several American League teams interested in Glaus for a clean up role and with Infante playing well at 2nd, Prado still raking and playing 3rd, Derek Lee, Erik Hinske and Freeman at 1st, trading Glaus for a future SS or LF may not be the worst idea.

In case you missed it, Freeman was also recently named the International League Rookie of the Year and named the best defensive 1st baseman in the league. The last Braves player to win this award was none other than Larry himself.

The future is bright in Atlanta folks. Hanson, Medlen, Minor, Kimbrel, Venters, Prado, McCann, Infante, Heyward, and Freeman are looking like a hell of a core to build around and with each of these guys being relatively young in their careers, that future may be bright for years to come. Let's pack the Ted for the rest of the season and support our Bravos! Hanson is on the mound tonight for the Braves versus the Mets in the series finale and if I'm lucky, Freeman will make his debut at 1st Base! Let's go Braves!
