While most of Braves Country was slipping into a carbohydrate, tryptophan, and Lions/Vikings induced stupor, the Atlanta Braves made a rare Thanksgiving Day transaction, signing super-utility player Sean Rodriguez. Probably like most fans, my first thought was that signing Rodriguez is an attempt by Atlanta to build more versatility for the bench. If Rodriguez is…
