Braves Front Office Annoyed With Mike Minor's Trade Request?

According to CBSSport.com MLB writer Jon Heyman, the Atlanta Braves "decision makers" were annoyed by Mike Minor's suggestion that he would want to be traded out of Atlanta if he isn't one of the pitchers in the starting rotation.

It's unclear as to what the starting rotation will be but Minor's 2011 ERA was 4.14 in 15 starts. It will be interesting to see how the Braves "decision makers" respond to Minor's demand and if their annoyance with his ultimatum weighs in on their decision to start Minor, trade him or find a spot in the bullpen for him.
