Seeing rumblings that the Braves just made the trade to get Justin Upton. That outfield just became something serious with Upton x2 and Heyward.
WOW I hope so. There have been talks for a couple of weeks but most thought he would end up in Texas or somewhere with big money???
ONLY down side to me is we will be giving up some of our bigtime young pitching prospects to get him? Lets see how this plays out the next few mins?
Where are you seeing this?
May-be...not seeing anything anywhere. Maybe it was one of the articles mentioning we were interested...there's been plenty of those.
Still, we are one of 4-5 teams thought to be in it. (g) just not the favorite.
Looks like the Dodgers have agreed to sign Zack Grienke so that most likely means that Hamilton goes back to Texas. So if Upton is traded then it looks like the Braves will be the destination. A Package built around Delgado/Teheran, Nick Ahmed, Zeke Spruill, and Edward Salcedo. That gets it done, but that is a huge package for the Braves to have to offer.
Yes it is. And at the end of the day PITCHING wins. Period. Sure, an offense can win you games but ask Texas how they wished they had one shut down pitcher either to come in a close one World Series Game or to Win another?
Still and Upton, Upton, Heyward outfield would be nice for the next 5-6-7-8 years. As long as the Upton brothers didn't settle on what they have already done. Both have been very VERY up and down. Potential is out of this world.
Sssshhhh Its a secret. Were exchanging all these players underground as we type. Seriously, maybe the OP knows a deal is being truly discussed? I guess we'll see in the next day or so? LOL I wouldn't mind if he ends up being right.
Dodgers got thier pitcher which means the Rangers can re-sign Hamilton and still trade for Upton.
Yeah, the Braves want Justin Upton. The price may be too steep however. 40 minutes have passed since the OP, and I haven't heard a peep on this. Grade of saw, and all that other ish.

Would hope it's true but don't see it happening
The D-Backs are asking for a package centered around Andrelton Simmons...who the Braves don't want to give up. He is talented and will be the starting SS. Missed time last year for injury.
If its not on mlbtraderumors.com there is nothing going on. And there is nothing on there.
Been at a party my bad. Not giving up Simmons, he's a centerpiece to the future, it's gonna be some pitchers who to have date not been impressive in the big leagues. It'll be this week, I might of just slightly jumped the gun in my post.

Where did you hear this though?
I can't give that out, either I will be praised shortly or have ALOT of crow to eat. But I'm pretty confident in my sources that this will happen.
I hope you are right
Who is it looking like we are going to have to give up
