mystery trade idea.....


Martin Prado going down with a staph infection is an obviously big blow to the braves already less-than intimidating offense.  With Prado on the DL, that means that all of our opening day starting outfielders are on the disabled list.  So here is a trade idea for an outfielder, that literally came to me in a dream..... its such a ridiculous idea that, god, it might actually make sense but see if you can figure it out before your head explodes.....

1. this player can play all three outfield positions, but at the corners he may have been good enough to win a gold glove at some point in his career

2.  hitting .281- 9hr-16 2b-40rbi means he automatically becomes the most productive outfielder on our team

3. is on a losing team that might want some soon to be ready pitching prospects

4. was once considered to be an untouchable player destined for multiple mvp's 

5. would make every braves fan head explode if we traded for him

6. while also making the ladies of braves nation quite happy

7. if he is hitting with that kind of power does it matter what his obp and ops are-- for a team that has as many OF regulars out of the lineup

......  que Dave O'brian's head exploding
