We just got Justin Upton! Go dawgs
Dawgs on Top!
This is a good trade for the Bravos. I thought they paid too much for Bossman Junior, but this fills needs for (relatively) cheap.
Sad to see Prado go - the guy plays the game the way it's supposed to be played. I hope (for him) he winds up in SF in a mid-year trade, as they would appreciate how he plays the game better than any team in MLB right now.
Just bought tix for all 4 Giants-Braves' games at ATT. Can't wait.
Art Schlichter's cellmates and Mo Clarett's rugby team believe Ohio State always does things honestly.....
Great trade for Braves. It's not often you get to trade for a gold glove outfielder who still hasn't hit his prime, he's only 25, and that 2 years ago finished 4th in the MVP voting! I love Prado as well but we got the best player in this deal.

Outstanding trade! As twodown stated, we traded a favorite for many Braves fans (and mine) who plays the game right for a 4th place finisher in the NL MVP voting 2 years ago and a solid 3rd base infielder.
I do think Delgado will be a solid #2 type pitcher and Nick Ahmed "could" be a star SS. Ahmed would have had to play 2nd base if the Braves kept him.
I stated it before, I will probably go from 4 to 5 games to 10+ this year to see the Braves.
Prado was gone after this year anyway. Couldnt afford to sign him. Upton is a potential star. Might as well get something for Prado. Great deal. Didnt touch any top prospects.
