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.

Are the Braves being cheap or is there nobody out there for them to get?  I haven't been keeping up with the available pitching...

Not much out there for a top rotation arm. Bumgarner is probably the best but hes not as good as he was. Hes still solid but probably not worth the Giants asking price considering hes a rental.

I see that but I also see that people are not on board with that move...:lol:

All i know about the guy is that he is great against us but apparently not that good against anyone else lol im more interested to see what Wilson does tonight. I haven't given up on him being the guy we need to fill out the rotation.

so the Braves are pretty much stuck with what they got or have to get a lower tiered pitcher.  folty's struggles are REALLY hurting that rotation.  they could absorb the off and on antics of tehran if folty was on his game...

We're better off going big for the bullpen and getting a middle of the rotation arm to fill it out. I'd try to get Stroman and Giles from Toronto. Problem is last year the reports were the Jays are salty Anthopolous left them and wanted him to pay higher prices.

I don’t mind going after Wheeler, if the price isn’t too much higher than Eovaldi of last year. Yeah, yeah, another big stuff arm that hasn’t panned out completely like Folty, but outside of last year and the return off Tommy John, he’s beaten Folty in performance, sadly.

The stuff is still there (like I said above) and the underlying peripherals are good. It took Jalen Beeks to get Eovaldi, who I would guess was a 40-45 in value, so it would take something like maybe Joey Wentz or Kolby Allard (just as an example), and I would do it, too.

He has the name, but I can make a dang good argument that Bum is very likely 3rd in the SPs that could be available if you toss playoff mystique in the trash. Stroman is beating him in performance considering he’s doing well in the AL East compared to playing half your games in Oracle (that’s what the park is for SF now) and you have Wheeler with the stuff still looking great and peripherals looking better.

Think the same way for most relievers too, although if you deal with the Giants, you’re going to get them attempting to put Bum in too if its with Will Smith and expand the deal. I would also consider Alex Colome but the White Sox aren’t completely out of it yet.

tbh there is rarely an ace arm available for trade at this time unless they are about to be a FA. Soroka is looking like that guy for us and if we could land someone like Minor/Stroman and a upper tier arm for the bullpen then that would be a huge win for us.

Doesn't really matter what I would give up for him since the Rays aren't trading their best pitcher. 

It was just theoretical. There are so many guys id like to have via trade but honestly i dont think id want to give up any of our top prospects. Was just curious if others felt the same.

Yeah, we've got so many guys I don't want to give up. Some of them I would for the right deal but it has to be the right deal. Like Stoman and Giles would be a heIl of a deal and one that I would try to pull off.

To get Stroman and Giles I would give up anyone except Anderson and Pache. I wonder what it would take to get it done

I would add Waters to that list. The future OF is Pache, Acuna and Waters. It would take a lot to get Stroman. The Jays can wait till winter to move him. Hes still got 1.5 years of control. Add in that you'll be fighting off the Yankees and reportedly Houston.
