    Not that some of those names are even available anyway. But Uggla, Heyward,Upton, and Granderson would make us the strikeout kings of the baseball world. Ughh, just thinking about them all in a slump at one time, striking out back-to-back. No Beuno.

    Idk if this trade has been suggested, but what about doing a three team trade with the dodgers and diamondbacks. We can try to acquire Dee Gordon from the Dodgers and then flip him to Arizona for Justin Upton, just a thought.
    What do you guys think?

    Dee Gordon? .561 OPS Dee Gordon? He's got about as much value as Jordan Schafer at this point.

    It was worth a shot......... Just thinking of ways to get the Upton Bros together, but it looks like it isn't happening.

    We could have made more of a run to move the price even higher.

    Yeah I think he was REALLY overpaid, however the OF market is expensive, especially this year. Glad to have Upton and a HUGE bargain in JHey.

    Hopefully they can do a McCutchen type deal where the arbitration years are covered.

    The Braves are seeking a pair of bench players, one right-handed hitter and one lefty, says David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution. Reed Johnson appears to be the team's top target as a righty bat, though he's still exploring his options, according to GM Frank Wren: "We’ve expressed an interest in bringing him back. He’s expressed an interest in coming back. But we’re just not there yet."
    Atlanta also continues to explore trades for impact bats, according to O'Brien, who says the Braves are believed to have inquired on Justin Upton, Alex Gordon, Dexter Fowler, and Shin-Soo Choo, among others.

    The Braves have signed catcher Matt Pagnozzi to a minor league contract, according to MLB.com's Mark Bowman (on Twitter). Pagnozzi, who hit .224/.329/.359 for the Indians' Triple-A affiliate last season, will likely serve as the team's big league backup while Brian McCann is out.

    SWEET! I like that we're at least looking.

    2:12pm: The Brewers aren't actively looking to trade Hart and would have to be overwhelmed to make a deal, tweets David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

    Can't fault us for not looking/trying, as far as I'm concerning we have been doing that all along.

    to follow up on that DOB tweet..

    Eric Soda ‏@EricSoda
    @ajcbraves Actually I see that @Dknobler just reported it. Melvin considering dealing Hart to free up payroll.
    David O'Brien ‏@ajcbraves
    @EricSoda Ah, then that changed since I asked #Brewers writer about C. Hart yesterday. Interesting.
    So it's still possible they move him..
