Cannot give Terry Pendleton a pass on dust up with Johnson

I happened to be flipping through some links this morning and came upon this report of a dust up between Braves' coach, Terry Pendleton, and Chris Johnson. I found the replay to be quite disturbing. The problem for me here is that I have no idea of the history that preceded the incident. I do not know if Chris Johnson is a jerk or not. I do not know if he did throw his...

Is Atlanta Braves Third Baseman Chris Johnson Really This Good?

It’s not often that the throw-in player of a trade ends up being just as important as the main piece that was acquired. Usually, the individual who is “thrown in” to a deal is typically used as a stopgap to fill a positional need while the team waits patiently for a prospect to develop.
