That's not a sizzling return, but throw in the rest of Upton's contract and I think you have a pretty solid deal.

    I would probably have preferred getting another handful of prospects instead of Quentin and Maybin, but I would wager those two were non-negotiables on San Diego's end.
    If not my exact thoughts, pretty darn close. I didn't realize that Maybin is making the kind of money he's making: $7 MM in 2015, $8 MM in 2016, and $9 MM in 2017.

    #Braves save $19.35M swap Upton for Maybin/Quentin. More vital owe nothing after ’16 heading to new stadium in ‘17

    Cant really complain about it. Seems like decent deal for both sides.

    I hope Freddie's comfortable doing a lot of PR, because he and Simmons are pretty much it in terms of marketing.

    And now reality slowly sets in:

    When I asked this spring about the possibility #Braves could trade Kimbrel this year I was told they had Grilli & Johnson as backups in case

    This echos how I feel about the Padres end of this.

    @matthewpouliot: Kimbrel is awesome. But the Padres just took on a horrible contract and gave their top SP prospect for something they didn't really need.

    The #Padres just took on an extra $66.8 million in salary commitments with their #Braves trade.

    I'm not even kidding I think you'd be jizzing your pants if the Nats made this deal from the Braves perspective.

    this is a great great trade. I think those who criticized everything this off-season have to love this one. some were calling for dealing kimbrel and to get this return for a close who isn't even particularly cheap anymore is 100% as close to selling at highest value as you can get.

    Lol. It's obvious this front office does not even want to begin to attempt to win anytime soon.

    This.

    @Joelsherman1: #Braves also get out of 3-$34M with Kimbrel. They were going to have an elite/expensive closer for few yrs with bad team. Didnít make sense

    Chris Cotillo is an optimist if he thinks Melvin is going to be the 4th OF. Pinch-runner deluxe.

    Guess it depends on if the Yankees wnat ot come knocking. I don't think they will but IIRC they were salivating over him.

    To not even get a serviceable ML player for Craig Kimbrel is laughable. It's amazing how clueless people can have jobs in this front office.

    I wish nothing but the best for Kimbrel, but can't believe someone took on Melvin's contract.

    I wonder if Wisler makes an impact this season.

    What's with the draft pick trading...I didn't think they did that in baseball.
