BRAVES: SS Alex Gonzalez, two prospects
I decided to occasionally include in these posts actual trades and provide some thoughts and commentary on them. I like this trade for both teams, but unlike most others, especially the Braves. Alex will help them a lot more than Yunel will in this final playoff push during Bobby Cox's send off. His affordable option for 2011 and the two prospects included make me really like this trade for Atlanta. As for the Blue Jays, I commend their GM for getting good talent for Gonzalez. I'm sure many had their doubts about whether they could. Another great, interesting trade to kick off this year's trade deadline.
