If he had Maddux, Glavine and Smoltz, no telling what Fredi might have done in Florida.

If he had Hudson, Hanson, and Jurrjens, it would have helped there too. (I couldn't bring myself to include Lowe despite his fantastic final performance this season).

I thought Gonzalez handled Hanley Ramirez pretty poorly. He escalated what could have been a minor incident into a major pissing match. Hopefully, he will only have docile, happy, eager players on the Braves.
