The Braves

Braves raped Arizona so hard in this trade. Chris Johnson is an awesome player locked up through 2017. Very similar to Prado but with more power. I think between him and Fransisco a starter will emerge to be full time 3B.

Well, umm no, on the Chris Johnson part. His bat is similar, with a lower average, but his defense is fuging awful. He's literally been the WORST third baseman, in defensive metrics, each of the last three years. Think Troy Glaus in 2010 bad.

whatevs. I don't give 2 fugs about defensive metrics. I'm talking about with a bat, he is very similar. Average is in the same ball park as Prado's. Besides he can be a back up first baseman. You don't have to be Ozzie Smith to play first. Or 3rd really. He will be serviceable. I understand that he is nothing more than a good utility man off the bench. Terd or Salcedo is the Brave's future 3B anyways.

Gonna be a lot of strikeouts acquired by this group, but also a lot of homeruns hit and some speed in that outfield. Still excited and hype about this trade!!

Prado signed for 4 years/40 million with Arizona.

I'm pretty happy the Braves got something for him going out the door because there's no way they would have given him 10mil a year.

Both Justin and BJ having a pretty good spring so far. Can't wait for the regular season to start up.

yeah both Upton's are killing it so far, and Jason had 3 homers within 10 at bats and he probably hitting better than anyone. Those 3 will be awesome to watch this season. Uggla still looks like the worst hitter of all time. No surprise there. Can't wait for that guy to be off the team.
