I know Scarlet your one...looks like you'll have a Upton brothers outfield
All-Star outfielder Justin Upton has been traded from the Arizona Diamondbacks to the Atlanta Braves, reports CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman. The deal is pending a physical, but is otherwise complete.
Goal in life is to make the Huskers Illustrated Hall Of Fame
meh....I didn't want to lose Prado. Essentially all it did was free up some money next season. Stats wise, it seems pretty even to me.
Braves fan here.
Oath Before Orders
Sucks you had to give up Delgado, i like him i was excited when that trade last year was agreed that the braves traded him to the cubs for Dempster before Ryan didn't want to go to Atlanta
cant believe we gave up Prado. Should have taken Uggla instead.
I could be wrong but wasn't there talk about Prado leaving after this season as a FA
That could be a good reason, they traded him while they could. Havent kept up with it as much lately. Both Uptons in the outfields not a bad trade thou. Although i liked Bourn as well, atleast they got comparable replacements.
Yes, Prado wanted more money than the Braves were going to be willing to give.
That's what i thought pretty damn athletic outfield though
I would have traded for Kate Upton.
Your team. All the time.
I like it. Nothing drops in that outfield. Loved Prado but he was going to be a FA next year. Kept our top pitching prospects, Delgado will be missed but Tehran was the 1 I wanted to keep.
Yeah, losing Delgado sucks but Tehran is the top guy.
I was excited as a Cubs fan when reports were Dempster was going to be traded to Atlanta for Delgado before he pussed out.
I think he'll be a hell of a pitcher
Wish I would have saw this earlier. I like the trade. Yep Prado is a FA next year so it's a good move. I'm ok with losing Delgado. Now if only the Cubs will trade for Popeye
I wish somebody would take him, would of been great to keep Prado and move him back to 2nd base.
hell no the Cubs are bad enough
