Ken Rosenthal reports "Furcal to sign with Braves"

"The Braves are on the verge of a major offseason upset.

Rafael Furcal is coming home.

In a stunning turnaround, the free-agent shortstop has chosen the Braves over the A's, according to a major-league source.

A contract agreement is expected to be announced Tuesday, conditional on Furcal passing a physical." -  Ken Rosenthal (To check out his full report click here)

If this story holds than I'm extremely anxious to see what Wren's next move is going to be. I think it goes without saying that Kelly or Yunel will playing for somewhere else next year (I know some have suggested moving Kelly back to LF but Wren and Cox have said as recently as this off season they don't consider him an outfield option). My prediction is that if they trade Kelly it'll be for a corner outfielder and they'll fill in the roatation with mid-tier guys like Randy Wolf and Jon Garland. If they trade Yunel it'll be for a top of the roatation guy and they'll sign someone like Juan Rivera to take over left. Of course that's just my humble opinion.
