Bad news and good news for Livan Hernandez.
First the bad news. He got released by the Astros, a team that lost 106 games last year. When the worst team in baseball doesn't want you, that is bad. Or as George Thorogood might say, "ba,ba,ba,bad."
Now the good news for Hernandez. He got picked up by the Braves.
So he exits the stench of Houston for the sweet contending aroma of Atlanta.
Good deal for Livan, who by the way, said recently that he wanted to be the right-handed Jaime Moyer. At 37 he has a ways to go but at least he's with a team again.
