Personally, I was not a fan of the Randall Delgado for two months of Ryan Dempster trade.
However, the Braves had agreed to the deal and saw enough in Dempster to pull the trigger on trading Delgado.
The Braves wanted him, but Dempster did not want the Braves. Dempster blocked the trade with his no-trade clause.
This makes the Braves look weak and foolish for not doing their homework.
Either the Braves could not convince him to come to Atlanta, or they didn't study Dempster's personal wishes fully. Either scenario does not look good on the Braves' organization.
You also have to factor in what this does to Delgado's confidence.
He pitched outstandingly in his last outing, so possibly it serves as motivation for him.
However, he will definitely doubt the organization's commitment to his future with the team.
