    Might as well shop Freddie too. We're going nowhere. Might as well plan for 2020.

    If something like Walker from Seattle is the return, and then Hart goes out and signs Tomas, this could end up being a pretty good offseason as far as reloading the organization with young talent is concerned.

    If you find a way to trade Upton for Walker/Miller or Taylor and then you sign Tomas then I think we are in a pretty good spot honestly.

    I'd like to get more than just Walker. Get Chris Taylor in the deal as well or Gab Guerrero.

    Total Annihilation was great, but I don't see how Chris Taylor will help us win baseball games.

    It will be interesting to see what Justin brings relative to Jason. It would be one more data point on how teams value defense relative to offense.

    Getting to watch Justin has nearly made up for having to watch his brother. If we do trade him, and I think we will, I hope he goes on to have a great career.

    Maybe this is all really being done just to piss off Terence Moore...

    Heyward would have been here if he didn't want to get paid like a superstar.

    He wasn't offered a contract, so you can't really say that....despite what the rumors are. You have no way to know what Jason would have said if we offered him a contract with T, Freddie, Simmons. Rumors are rumors and they might be from good sources but those rumors are after we never offered him a contract.

    Ramadon never said that the Braves made Heyward an offer.

    From the get-go, I thought it would make more sense to shop J. Upton before Heyward because the return would be higher and the team would have a better idea after that trade as to what needs were and how those needs could be balanced with the current number of movable assets. Seems they got things a little backward. I could live with a draft pick for one of the two, but not for both of the two. Seems to be a bit of an overreaction and impatience.
