Shelby Miller comments on trade to Braves

67

"One thing I remember going to that field every time we go there – Turner – you look up at the numbers on the board, and I can’t remember the years, but, I mean, they were in the playoffs for a ridiculous number of years in a row with Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and [John] Smoltz. I feel like we have the same opportunity to do that with the team they have now. They’ve obviously got a great offensive lineup that’s tough, a lot of tough outs throughout. The starting pitching is phenomenal. And I can’t wait to pitch with those guys and, like I said, get over there, meet my new teammates. [I’m] excited for the opportunity and looking forward to it."
