Credit where it's due: over the past two months, AA's added four quality relievers and a former Cy Young-winning starter.  The opportunity cost was a former first round pick in Allard, Wentz, a d

Jon Morosi reporting the Braves are interested in Mike Minor.

Enough, guys. Don’t need to litter the thread with this.

doesn't matter.  This team is flawed enough pitching wise that one above average injury prone pitcher isn't getting the Braves a World Series.    YES, I know Syndergard - healthy - has a high ceiling.    I would give up a package to get him - but that package wouldn't include Ian Anderson.   Would be more willing to give up Kyle Wright.

Actually, it does matter, as he would be here for multiple years with multiple opportunities to help the franchise get to a WS. Not to mention the fact that the SP has actually been a lot better over the last few weeks outside of a couple of dud starts. To be honest, it's not a sexy as the Nats, Dodgers, or Astros 3-man rotation (for HOU, it's really just 2-man), but I'd feel real confident going into a playoff series with Soroka, Keuchel, and Syndergaard as our top 3. And while we all like Anderson, he is not without his warts (walks quite a few guys, inefficient outings, average spin rates, etc.).

Ender told the AJC he hasn't been told yes or no about being discussed in potential trades. Ender added that even with his demotion he doesnt want to leave. He said the Braves uniform is the only one he wants to wear. I dont see him being dealt in July but over the winter I think we'll see him moved. His value is based solely on his defense now since hes having the worst offensive season of his career.

First of all, I love to hear this from Braves players. 

Second, Atlanta's in a really weird situation with Folty, Gausman, Ender, and DuVall. Those are all guys who could use a change of scenery and are worth a shot for some team. Atlanta could buy AND sell some. I don't think that's been chronicled enough yet.

Cubs get Derek Holland from SF for cash. Giants had DFA'd Holland.

Toronto is reportedly trying to tell teams they might keep Stroman and extend his contract. Nobody is buying it.

Stroman even replied to someone on Twitter basically saying that it was news to him.

I saw a few people on Twitter saying Ian Anderson would be in any Syndergaard deal. That would be an automatic no for me. Syndergaard gets hurt too often and Anderson has such good stuff. 

Please don't get rid of Anderson for Syndergaard. 

That'd be stupidity to me... Anderson is our future Ace

AA had already said no one is untouchable and he'll listen. 

I'm sure he'd say something like "something something deGrom " though.

Jon Morosi reporting the Braves and Blue Jays are deep into talks. Jays top scouts are in Florida to watch Tristan Beck. Morosi mentions Giles, Stroman, Hudson and Sogard as possibilities. 

Mets writer also says the Braves are involved with Syndergaard. He mentions Allard, Wright and Anderson would be very intriguing to the Mets. Wright and Allard would give them two arms to immediately plug into the rotation. He adds that would be really appealing to the Mets who hope to contend next season.
