They are gonna make a move or two before the deadline to win NOW! And send Bobby into retirement in style. I like the move.

Yeah, remember David Justice?

I'm glad Escobar is gone. I was getting tired of watching him ground to third every time he came up with a runner on third and less than two out.

Gonzalez brings a lot of strike outs with him, though. Overall, I think he'll be an upgrade.

Alex strikes out ALOT...BA will probably be in the .230 range..BUT he is one of the top 5 defensive SS in MLB...& the way this team is built around the pitching they need the SS to be a defensive stud

I love the move. Escobar needed to go. He's got all the talent in the world, but he is stubborn and just couldn't get it. Also quite frankly the constant pouting in the dugout was more than old. I wish him well. This move says a lot. The Braves are going for the gusto this final year for Bobby. I absolutely love it!!!!

well Escobar only had 1 homerun this year, And 29 ribys I think. If Gonzalez can keep his pace going and with the pop we should get out of Heywards bat starting tonight, it could be scary
