Boy, I don't get this one for the Braves. Reyes isn't worth much, but I wouldn't move Escobar for Gonzalez. With Alex Gonzalez you're getting a little more pop, but his OPS is deceiving. A .793 OPS loses value when the OBP is .296. We're talking about a career .248/.294 hitter who's 33 years old...this is who he is. One hot half-season (and that's strictly from a slugging standpoint) doesn't change that. Escobar has struggled a bit this year (though June was better with a .400+ OBP), but he has a stronger track record and brighter future. He's younger and cheaper. I don't get it.
I am intrigued by Tim Collins though. Granted he's a relief prospect and only 5'7" and 155 lbs, but 73 Ks in 43 AA innings is pretty sick. Maybe he ends up justifying the deal a little someday.
