The REAL Reason the Braves Released Livan Hernandez

by Ian Miller

I was doing my usual hard-hitting style of investigative journalism (i.e., using Google) for a forthcoming piece on Livan Hernandez when I came across this piece of information on Wikipedia. This explains everything. 

Here's the previous version of the Wikipedia entry, which has since been de-"vandalized."

It was pizza not cupcakes and he didn't share the last one with Fredi G. You can do a lot of things but don't mess with Fredi's pizza

More like the Rev. Jesse Jackson. Been everywhere and still trying to get respect for something other than an SNL skit.
