Braves just traded Justin Upton for prospects and magic beans.

Meanwhile, the Padres now have a pretty impressive batting order with Upton, Kemp and Wil Myers.  The last week of trading has been fascinating.

Padres over the Dodgers for the division now. SF collapses under the weight of it being an odd year.  Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly?

I wouldn't exactly crown the Padres division winners yet. That ballpark is going to continue to swallow a lot of potential home runs. Not that what they got isn't a huge improvement over what they had, mind you.

Also, the Braves gave Markakis $44 million? Really? Not sure those numbers justify that.

Of course they don't justify it. Fucker just had neck surgery. But full steam ahead on the rebuilding failboat while we coast through 3 more shitty years of BJ Upton on our way to a new stadium and some actual revenue.

Wasn't BJ the Upton that couldn't hit shit all season long? They kept him and traded his brother?

... the fuck?

Would you pay for BJ Upton?  There was probably no one who wanted to touch that contract.

The Braves have tried everything to unload him. He's fucking untradable.

I said this deal would go horribly wrong when we did it, and it has. The Justin deal was fine, but he's a rental now and the Braves need a farm system.

The park swallows visiting HRs too. It's pretty much always an advantage to play in a pitcher's park because your pitchers get used to it and the visitors don't.

Forgot that they picked up Derek Norris, too.  Wonder why they're not looking at their pitching more, Cashner can't carry them all the way.

Cashner-Ross-Kennedy is a very good 1-2-3 in whichever order you put them in, and they have a bunch of other decent options to pick from for the rest. Although hopefully not Despaigne because that's annoying to type.
