SEnd Dunn,DIno,E.Ramirez,and a young prospect to the Braves for A.Jones,M.Giles,and James(the young pitcher).It would take care of 2 of our off season needs with a gold glove CF who has a good bat,also would bring back a very good 2B and a decent 3-4 pitcher.We might would have to give up a little something else as well but the trade looks good to me,what do you think.

Horrible trade. Jones and Giles are very expensive and overrated. Jones is still good but he is slowing down a lot in CF ala KGJ and Edmonds and Giles had a bad stretch this year. Also, whatever we do we should not make the team older by picking up 2 more players who seem to be on the decline. That would leave BP and EE as the only regulars not on the downside of their careers. That doesn't bode well for the next few years. Additionally, the James for EZ trade would be pretty much a wash as neither has been great but both have similar potential.
