The Braves Don’t Rebuild, They Pivot

After the initial shock of the Jason Heyward trade flickered out and your nerves gave way to your brain, you probably had the time to realize the Braves were only trading one year of Heyward to the St. Louis Cardinals, since he’s a free agent after the season.

Trading Jason Heyward needs to be the first step for the Braves

On Monday, the Atlanta Braves set Twitter abuzz by trading Gold Glove right fielder Jason Heyward to the Cardinals. And while the move makes sense from an objective perspective (heading into his walk year, in line for a massive payday, Braves needed young pitching), it hurts from an emotional perspective.

The Braves didn’t recently make Jason Heyward a long-term offer

Jason Heyward is gone after today’s trade that sent him to the St. Louis Cardinals. The general consensus about why Heyward was traded is that he would be too expensive to sign long-term, and he’d leave as a free agent after the 2015 season. We don’t know that for sure, however. According to Heyward, who wanted to stay in Atlanta, the Braves didn’t even approach him with...
