– MLB – Braves: Goodbye to Maddux, Sheffield, Lopez

The old guy, Julio Franco. None of the other free agents were tendered, so the Vinny Era is over. And the Boom-Boom Era. And the Shane Reynolds Era, but we already knew that. So it’s not all bad.

The two free agents we might miss from the low-profile players were Matt Franco and Kent Mercker. It sure looks like the Braves are committing to LaRoche at first base, but we’ll see. The Darrens Holmes and Bragg will also go elsewhere.
