ajc.com | Braves | Braves select Francoeur

The Braves picked — you might want to take a deep breath, keep calm — a high schooler from Georgia with their first round draft pick. They always take high schoolers, they’re always from the South, and they’re often from Georgia. Well, at least this one is an outfielder. Let’s see if AOL ponies up to sign him. (BTW, there’s a report that Ted Turner led the effort to oust AOL TimeWarner president Gerald Levin. If Ted starts taking a bigger role in the company, that’s good for the Braves, good for TBS.)
