Though I never did talk about it on the blog, I did mention my fears to a few of my friends, who then very quickly calmed me down. I should know by now that I should always prepare myself for the worst when I get that trade spidey-sense of mine.
Frenchy? I called it, though I didn't know it'd be to the Mets.
Yunel? Gregor? That nagging feeling about the two of them being traded was in my gut, but I managed to talk myself out of it... only to have it happen.
Yes, I'm calling myself an Atlanta Braves trade psychic. I might not know where the boys are going to go, but I know that they'll be traded.
And Omar was tingling my spidey sense.
I'm still in shock. As far as Dan Uggla goes, I honestly thought that the Jays would make some big play for him, and I would have been ok with that. Uggla at 2B, Aaron Hill at 3B, Yunel at SS? That infield would have been STACKED.
I am well aware of what the team NEEDS. I'm still a team girl; I'll always be loyal to the Braves. But that doesn't change the fact that one of my darlings was traded away along with a guy that I was quickly growing very attached to.
We'll miss you, Omar and Mike Dunn.
Now I really don't feel like making the second half of my gameday post. Ugh. I have so many Mike Dunn and Omar pictures. This is going to be unbearable.
Also, lastly: Welcome aboard, Dan Uggla. I swear I'll say nice things about you soon. Just...
I need a little time to say goodbye to my boys...
Edit: I don't mean to make it seem like that I won't miss Mike Dunn. I SO will. He was very smiley and nice. And he was good. I like him. But Omar... Omar has been one of my darlings from the get-go. An infinity heart. And he's GONE. And I'm obligated to root against him now. :(
