The Braves didn’t need Liberty Media to cheap out during the off-season. I give you Charlie Spikes. He was signed in early April and it’s shocking that he was on the market still. Sure, he had played parts of 7 seasons in the big leagues and had stunk in every single one of them. Bad. Really, really bad. On the 1979 Atlanta Braves, he didn’t even stick out. Those were some lean years.
