    Justin Upton traded to Braves for Martin Prado, Randall Delgado, +specs

    The Braves obtain Upton and third baseman Chris Johnson for third baseman Martin Prado, right-hander Randall Delgado, shortstop prospect Nick Ahmed, right-handed pitching prospect Zeke Spruill and minor league first baseman Brandon Drury.

    Simmons is prob one of the more untouchable players on the Braves and he's not in play for Jus10 Up10. I'm saying its Teheran, Graham, Ahmed, Walden and Gattis for Upton and a low/mid prospect

    If the Braves get Upton using Teheran as the centerpiece, then the Dbacks got raped imo.

    Teheran's better than a lot of people think, his mechanics have just been off these past 2 years.

    I think he's just another overhyped prospect that got a lot of love just because he was young. Pitchers tend to improve less than hitters. He's had problems developing a breaking ball and his numbers in AAA suck.

    In 145 innings in AAA in 2011, he posted a 2.55 ERA with a 1.18 WHIP... as a 20 year old. He had a down year last year because of the Braves tinkering with his mechanics.

    Arent all young top prospects overhyped until they've proved themselves? Prospects tend to get traded on potential not what they've accomplished. Its always a gamble whether its the #1 overall prospect or some trade filler

    I was shocked/disappointed the first time I ever saw Teheran pitch. Maybe it was nerves but his fastball was extremely flat and he couldn't locate anything. That being said he has looked better recently and he's only 21

    Andrelton Simmons, Julio Teheran, Jonny Venters, and JR Graham for Justin Upton and Didi Gregorius?

    As a baseball fan in general I would love to see the Upton brothers playing together. They would be a lot of fun to watch.
