Bye, Bennett

He wasn't our most talented pitcher, but he was one of my favorites. :( He is one of two Braves of whom I've never heard a...well, let's say an "unsavory" story, and that goes a long way in my book.

CABravesFan alerted me to DOB's announcement, but I told her I wouldn't believe it until I saw it elsewhere (since I trust DOB so much - *rolls eyes*)... but now that he's put a real writeup on AJC.com, I suppose I have to believe it. "Thanks", CA. ;)

A team spokesman said the Braves granted the reliever’s request to release him from his contract Thursday, making Bennett a free agent.

Bye, Jeff. Good luck. <3


I'll miss that view!

I wish I could say I was sorry...on the bright side I no longer have any braves on my Chipper Squiggle list ;)

Ugh, Chipper's gonna be around forever. He'll play till his poor, broken feet fall off, then they'll hire him as the hitting instructor, and he'll be here till he dies. *barf*

Who is gonna cut their hair now???

I almost forgot he was on the team since he broke his hand.

Slappy, I heard Bennie mention one time that he got some hair cutting lessons from Gonzo, so maybe he'll take the job, lol!

Further confirmation by Bowman.
