It's not gonna happen.
Granted I don't know most (only Teheran) of the names y'all would be trading but it seems like it would take y'all to another level. J Upton is only 25 and his two down seasons in the last few have been bc injuries. His home/road splits are very discouraging since he plays in probably the most hitter friendly stadium in the NL but the road parks out west are tough outside of Coores. Petco and the Dodgers are pretty extrem pitchers parks.
For the life of me I can't figure out why they would deal him. Seems like a guy you build around. Anyway I saw where K Towers is heading out of the country Friday and this could move fast. Not a Braves fan but that would be a heck of a race with the Nats the next few years.m

We should know something in the next 24 hours.
I was actually in favor of the Texiera trade. I'm just not in favor of this one if it's Teheran/Gilmartin/Ahmed/and another arm.
Braves could always sign him for 1 year, but I think Wren wants to get a multi-year guy in the outfield. I like Bourne but I liked him less after watching him for a full season than I did with a smaller sample size. When he gets hot, he's like Carlos Beltran and can carry an offense, but he's just not a great leadoff man. On a team with a great leadoff man, he's be a great #2 hitter or ever in the 6 or 7 hole.
With Boras as an agent? No way he allows a 30 year old client to sign a one year deal.
if we get JUpton we wont see bourn. i think he will be too expensive anyway. think he is going to end up at the mets
i just heard the deal is done. the players are agreed upon they are just waiting on physicals. thats awesome

Yep. Rosenthal is saying Delgado isn't the biggest player included in the deal. Tehren is not included.
Per Mark Bowman on twitter, it's Upton and Chris Johnson for Prado, Delgado, Ahmed and Spruill.
Yep. Trade rape.
hearing it might be prado...... that would suck. but chris johnson isnt too bad
I miss the 90s :-(
Still a Braves fan though . Prado seriously
My exact thought! That sucks.

Prado is going to be missed but Chris Johnson isn't bad. We've just gotta hope the outfield stays healthy since Prado could play everywhere.

I just love watching Prado's AB's. He is a 'real' professional hitter.
I've got a buddy who used to work with the Mobile BayBears. He used to say Upton was one of the best players he's ever seen.
Someone say the Braves?

Clearly it's not going to happen now, but Bourne is unsigned 3 weeks before pitchers and catchers report. I know the one year deal is not Boras's MO, but its not in his best interest to have a client unsigned when spring training starts. I was just suggesting that as the only way Bourne could've possibly re-signed with the Braves.
