Curious thought, trade idea and such...

Hey everyone, just wanted to float some thoughts out there and gauge some reactions and opinions on some trade ideas with the Pirates.  I along with some other Pirate fans are just curious to see how you all feel about some trade ideas.

The Buccos are still looking for some immediate pitching help for 2012 and beyond.  Our one area of surplus is OF and as I follow the Braves pretty well, I know that CF quite possibly an area of need for you guys.  As the Pirates continue negotiations to extend McCutchen, two other players at the CF position that could be traded are Alex Presley or Starling Marte.

For those of you unfamiliar with Marte here is his profile page:  http://players.piratesprospects.com/2010/02/starling-marte.html

Marte will be in AAA this season so he is close to being in the bigs, and he has the tools to move McCutchen off CF, which shows that he could be the real deal.  Anyways my question is, if the Pirates were to put a package together around Presley or Marte what would the Braves be willing to give up in return.  Could the Pirates get a Minor or a Delgado.  Would it take less to get Hoover? Beachy?  Going for the big time, what would it cost for say Jurrjens?

Thanks in advance for the discussion (hopefully!).
