Claws

The Braves

Recommended Posts

Another name being thrown around is Cody Ross in LF, moving Prado to 3rd. Looks like Swisher will cost too much.

I'd love to have Justin too, but Arizona would be asking for Simmons and two pitchers. Still good to see Liberty Media spending money and not just sitting on what's cleared off the books.

I know Wren would like to move Uggla, but that contract looks horrible right now.

Yea, the best we can hope for in the Uggla situation is that he can atleast get back to how he was early in his career with the Marlins. Not holding my breath on that, though.

I'd be happy with Cody, and your right, it's good to see the organization spending some money. I really really like the acquisition of BJ. I just want him to get that average up a bit, and cut down on the strikeouts.

Could the Braves get Ichiro?

I say Wren better jump on that right now. I don't care that he is 39. He is the perfect lead off hitter that we need. He is very productive. He never strikes out and gets on base all the time. And he can still steal bases with ease. Just imagine him getting on with Prado hitting right behind him and then all that power in the middle of the line up. Would be crazy good. Go get him Wren.

Well it looks like the snakes are back to talking again and BJ might not be the only Upton in Atlanta this year. Olney is reporting the Braves have made an offer to the Dbacks for Justin Upton that does NOT include Simmons. Arizona is looking to make a move by Friday.

Both Uptons, Prado, Heyward, Freeman, Simmons, McCann and Uggla...that will make a lineup with not too many holes.

Please God let the Justin Upton trade happen. what a dynamic outfield the Braves would have with Heyward, Upton, and Upton. It is so fugging exciting that there is no way it will happen.

Let's get it done. I hope they don't have to give up too many young prospects but the Braves need another right hander in the line up. Plus the I think the 2 Uptons playing together will make them both better.

Braves put a ton of talent in the purposed trade. It's like 50-50 right now, depending oon who Arizona decides to trade. If it's upton, then Atlanta got him.

Teheran, Ahmed, Gatis and most likely Graham as well. Deal could get done today, most likely will be late in the day. Arizona wants it done by Tomorrow.

Justin Upton and Chris Johnson to the Braves in exchange for Martin Prado, Randall Delgado, Zeke Spruill, Nick Ahmed, and Brandon Drury.

As much as I love Prado, Wren just completely fleeced the Diamondbacks.

Gonna miss Prado, but I'm loving the deal. Looks like we came out on top.

Prado is a free agent after this year and the reports coming out are stating that he was asking for 12million/year on an extension.

Upton still has 4 years of team control.

It's an awesome deal.
