I was talking to a buddy of mine last night who happens to be an Atlanta Braves fan, and he mentioned how excited he was about Andrelton Simmons.
He went on to talk about how the Braves did a great job locking up the ‘young guns’ to long-term deals, but all they needed to do was to handle Simmons next. This conversation went on for about two hours or so, eventually leading up to ridiculous quotes being thrown out by Bill Murray and Harry Caray.
Because I’m a Chicago Cubs fan.
Atlanta and the young short stop have agree’d on a seven year contract worth $58 million, according to clubs Twitter handle.
The Braves have agreed to terms with SS Andrelton Simmons on a seven-year contract. The deal runs through 2020.

Braves fans should be excited about this deal.
