According to MLB.com:
Now that the Braves have moved Derek Lowe, they could create more financial flexibility by trading Jair Jurrjens or Martin Prado.
According to a Major League source, the Braves have already approached some teams about the possibility of trading Jurrjens or Prado. Both players could see their respective salaries rise from the $3 million range to the $5 million range through arbitration this offseason.
Only problem is, according to the article, the Braves are looking for a shortstop or a power hitting outfielder, neither of which the Reds have to offer (other teams won’t see Alonso as an OFer).
So, what do you think?
I’ve been a Reds fan since the late ’60’s, with my luck of being able to attend plenty of games at Riverfront during the BRM era. I was sitting in the Green Seats in the OF when Pete came home in ’84 and was in the Red seats when Glenn Braggs reached over the fence in ’90 to beat the Pirates. I have had many favorites from Jim Maloney to Johnny Bench, Barry Larkin, Adam Dunn, and Jay Bruce.
