DateQuestionAnswer
2011-08-26 16:00:00 (link to chat)Which trade/FA signing that you were in on are you most proud of?
(stydings from NJ)
Frank involves all of our front office and scouts in all of the major decisions so it's never a case of "we got this player because of this person." I am proud of all the moves we have made, but it's nice to see career minor league players like Constanza or Brooks Conrad get an opportunity here in Atlanta when they were signed as minor league free agents. I'm also proud of some of the guys we have found on the waiver wire, acquiring the likes of Eric O'Flaherty and Cristhian Martinez for $20,000 per claim. (John Coppolella)
