Andruw takes trade talk calmly | Braves |

Pat diagnosis (though based on years of watching him): Andruw is passive-aggressive. Extremely so.

Adam LaRoche is just about ready for his rehab assignment. However, I’m not sure what the Braves will do when he’s ready to play. If nothing else, this has to end the Mike Hessman Era, right? But I don’t know if they’ll reinstate the full platoon. It seems unlikely.

Marcus is also getting close, and took some swings in the batting cage. The hope is still that he’ll be ready after the All-Star Break.
