Braves could sign Furcal

According to Ken Rosenthal the Braves are in deep discussion about Rafael Furcal.  It was earlier reported that the A's offered Furcal 4 years and $40 mil.  The Braves offer is reported to be for 3 years with a vesting option.  According to Furcal's agent Furcal is seriously considering the Braves offer.  This would give the Braves a surplus of middle infielders.  If the Braves are able to sign Furcal then they would most likely trade one of Kelly Johnson or Yunel Escobar.  I would rather it was Johnson and then shift Furcal to second.  That would give us a very good middle infield, plus it would give us a true lead off hitter again.  Not really sure what the market would be for Johnson but I do know that it would be better for Escobar.  This could open up some options on the trade market for us.
