Chris Johnson had 7/35/.286 with a slg pct of .503 in 147 abs playing for Arizona last year after being obtained from Houston
Upton had an off year but i have to think the Braves did great in this deal without giving up much at all....
they pick up their 25 year old starting RFer and 28 year old starting 3b for Martin Prado and 4 lesser prospects while keeping their top 3 pitching prospects?....
very strong deal for the Braves and you have to figure Towers was up against it to make this deal
Delgado has fallen off the map a bit,Ahmed is a good defensive shortstop with speed who hit .269 at A+ ball,Spruill is close to our Mazzoni,and Drury hit .229 at A ball this past season....
honestly Murphy,Familia,Mazzoni,Tovar,and TJ Rivera
but from us they wanted Wheeler?
quite a step down from the Mariners' offer
at MLBTR some analysts are saying that Arizona got "50 cents on the dollar" in return for a player everyone in baseball knew Towers wanted to trade
and rival executives are saying that Arizona "squandered" a lot of talent this offseason but expect Arizona to contend this year
