Braves Rumors

Talking Chop has a nice roundup of trade talks that the Braves could be exploring.

First, the White Sox are interested in Andruw Jones.  That seems like a longshot because Andruw has a no-trade and the White Sox hate Scott Boras, but who knows, maybe an extension would get that done.  Trading for Jones would make Brian Anderson expendable, and Anderson seems to me like Bobby Cox's kind of player--young, great defense, could improve at the plate.  Maybe Anderson and one of Chicago's starters would get that deal done.

Second, the Rangers could be looking at Braves pitching.  The Rangers could have all sorts of holes depending on how many of their free agents they are able to keep, especially in the rotation.  They don't match up nearly so well with the Braves--this article suggests the Braves would be looking for bullpen help in a deal like that, but after trading away Francisco Cordero last season, the Rangers wouldn't appear to have the depth to survive losing Akinori Otsuka.

In related news, Vicente Padilla's agent doesn't expect him to sign immediately, but notes that the Rangers are the most interested.  I'm not surprised--if both Padilla and Adam Eaton went elsewhere, Jon Daniels would be forced to do a lot of shopping in a very, very expensive store.
