Braves - Rockies Trade Still A Possibility

Seriously, this trade just will not go away. The longest running off-season rumor between the Atlanta Braves and Colorado Rockies that would primarily involve Martin Prado and Seth Smith is apparently still going strong. MLB.com Rockies beat writer Thomas Harding rumors us this:

The Rockies could use one more bat, specifically at second base. The Braves need a left fielder. None of this has changed since the offseason began and reports surfaced of the possibility of the Rockies sending left-handed hitting outfielder Seth Smith to Atlanta for right-handed hitting infielder Martin Prado. Dialogue between the teams continued through last week, and word Monday was the possibility of a trade remains alive.

I might actually hold my breath until Mark Bowman or David O'Brien shoot this rumor down, which I image will happen in three, two ...

But really, I think we've beat the reasons to death as to why Smith would not be a good fit for the Braves; he's a lefty with a bad platoon split against left-handers (not something the Braves need more of), and the production that is there is aided by the mile highness of his home stadium.

Rumor, rumor, go away.
