Could a trade be brewing between the Braves and Dodgers

The Braves have been pretty quiet so far leading up to the trade deadline, but if history is any guide, they usually don't just stand pat. We get this twitter post from Ed Price at Fan House:

Lots of scouts checking out #Dodgers Double-A team. #Braves had two people there, and Atlanta has the pitching LA could use.

I passed on a note earlier in the day that Tim Hudson is on track (so far) to return by August 15th. This could be the Braves just testing the water or making sure all their bases are covered in case someone does call and ask for one of our pitchers, or (in a more exciting world) it could be the precursor to something big between the Braves and the Dodgers -- who have a history of deadline deals. If it was one scout from Atlanta I could dismiss it, but two scouts.

Either way this is definitely something to keep an eye on.
