What I mean is that you might be better off trading Burnett when he's actually pitching well for a stretch (like what he was doing at the beginning of the season), instead of in the middle of one of his trips on the DL. It might bring back more value. But yes...you bring up a good point about addition by subtraction.

eh i know atkins is a big time player but hes interested in coming back home and playing for the angels. maybe giving up a starter and a few prospects would get the deal done

I don't understand why they'd want to trade him in the first place. He loves Chicago, the fans love him, he's a freakin workhorse, and, from what I understand, the value is good.

Williams was right on with this one. Two good prospects is what it should take to get a guy like Buerhle if you are a major market team. It's not like they don't have the money to get the team back on it's feet. They were trying for an amazing trade, but it makes much more sense to keep Buerhle when you have the money to do so if that trade isn't there.

Teixiera to Braves for Salty + ?? picking up again

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the Braves are being mentioned as a team that could make a trade for Mark Teixeira prior to the trading deadline.

Teixeira, who is in the final year of a contract, would likely cost the Braves top prospect Jarrod Saltalamacchia and at least one other player.


We've seen the Braves connected in Mark Teixeira rumors before; in late June Kat O'Brien included the Braves in a sizeable list of interested teams. Speculation for quite a while now has placed catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia in the discussion.

David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution says the Teixeira-to-Atlanta rumor was still making the rounds at the All-Star Game. He seems to be speculating when he says Jon Daniels would require Salty and another young player, but that sounds about right. Perhaps the Braves wouldn't be daunted by Teixeira's free agency after 2008. They could definitely let him walk and collect some valuable draft picks. That'd bypass a lot of the Boras factor, though they'll still have to arrive at a 2008 salary.

Braves' first basemen have amassed an ugly .211/.264/.374 line in 318 ABs, most of it coming from Scott Thorman and the since-departed Craig Wilson. But if they went with Saltalamacchia exclusively from here on out, would he be significantly worse than Teixeira?

The Braves are fourth in the NL in OBP and sixth in slugging, with Andruw Jones perhaps primed for a much better second half. The bigger need is in pitching, specifically the starting rotation. Atlanta's 4.60 rotation ERA is just 10th in the NL, and they have to be at least slightly worried about John Smoltz.

The problem is that Teixeira is definitely on the market, while an ace starter may not be. Javier Vazquez might be the best pitcher available.

If Salty goes to the Rangers, does he end up being the primary first baseman, platooning at catcher?
