I'd love to see a package deal where the Braves land Marcus Stroman and Ken Giles from the Blue Jays!!

Depends on how salty Toronto is. Remember last year Peter Gammons reported the Jays wanted Anthopolous to pay more than anyone else for their guys. We tried to get Stroman last year. We also tried to pull an August deal for Donaldson.

Yeah, we'll see. I just think that is probably the best deal we could get given the asking price on Bumgarner and his ability to block.

His hard hit percentage is over 40% this year. That's ridiculously bad.

Yeah, hes not fooling many people these days. Hamels was looking washed up before his trade to Chicago too. I dont know if Bumgarner will be the same, we'll have to see.

Trading Nick Markakis would absolutely kill team morale!! Braves can't do that!!

The only reason i don't really agree is us bringing up someone like Pache would be reuniting a young player with the rest of our young guys. (Acuna, Albies, Riley, Camargo, etc.). So i don't think the team would look at it as a moral killer, but rather their old minor league teammate getting a chance to prove himself as they have already done. Just my 2 cents

I fully disagree. Nick Markakis is looked at as one of the veteran leaders of the team along with Freddie. The young players look up to him. Trading him sends the wrong message that leadership and clubhouse morale doesn't matter. We all saw how Markakis stood up against Hart and Coppy for the way they treated Snitker. That goes a long way with the players. These guys are the ultimate fighters and trading Markakis would be diasterous.

No way in **** would I trade Kakes, team leader, he's still productive and that would be ****ting on him. He took less money to play in atlanta than what was being offered. Trade Ender, its the simple solution right now.

Cant do that either. Ender is our only other CF. Acuna is the CF on roster now.

Giles and Stroman would be a fantastic get.

We could use Duvall. 

Same thing I was thinking.  Duvalls defense, IIRC, was solid to very good. He is already an asset and Ender could be used to get BP help. Only thing is he doesnt have the elite speed of Ender(lol)

Duvall has zero experience in CF

Let's also not pretend that we can't just acquire another center fielder if we traded Ender.

 I don't think the braes would pass up on an opportunity just because we don't have another true center fielder when there are defensive replacements out there we could sign or trade for in the same deal.

What happened with that?? For some reason I do not recall the instance that you are referring to
