"The fact that this is even a question is literally the dumbest thing I have ever heard in my entire life. One of the best in franchise history, a pillar of the Atlanta community and potential future HOF. Real Braves fans should be laughing at this."- Alex Wood on Freddie Freeman's return to Atlanta
