The Braves

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.

Upton, Upton, Heyward in the outfield. Hopefully this deal goes thru!

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.

Gave up a lot and still came out ahead. Great trade if Justion returns to 2010 form.

    • With rivera thinking defense would win mentality..they thought Cam would be enough him and Smitty and double trouble...didn't work that way..this is a passing league and you have to adjust..front 7 is nice but if the team is getting ball out quick it negates it.Our offense in the SB was slow and line not good on the right side..After loosing Smity we had no true threat...Benjamin is good but is slow. Ginn and Brown weak and small..they are no smity ..If Steve were here we would have had a 2015 SB. Imagine Smitty in Browns place during SB...the organization took a turn for worst on offense should have gotten a  replacement benji was not it or was not enough.
    • So you answer a question with a question? Have no opinion?  Scared to guess?
    • correct. herbert spencer's concept (falsely attributed to darwin) was used heavily throughout the late 19th century to add a scientific justification for things like child labor and opposing evils such as regulations. some people were meant to be poor! it is a sure sign someone has no empathy and shouldn't be a viable voice in putting together a society that works for everyone because it is inherently anti-social.
