I remember when we delayed calling up KB there was so much anger and outrage, but I've heard very little rancor over the Braves doing the same thing with Ronald Acuna.

I guess maybe it's just an accepted practice and baseball writers have moved on.

It's not as big a story now, but it's just been "accepted" in that it's a thing that's going to happen until it's renegotiated. It's really not something anyone is happy about except for the FOs.

Also, there's a big difference between Chicago sports media and Atlanta sports media.
