To the extent there is a desire to move A-Gon, there's one less suitor out there.

Escobar should be pretty good

I really didn't see this coming, but they have been in the market for a shortstop. Does anybody know if the Tigers gave up anything good?

They gave up a decent pitcher and a possible stud.

Tigers acquired shortstop Edgar Renteria from the Braves for RHP Jair Jurrjens and outfielder Gorkys Hernandez.

Jurrjens is middle of the order starter right now and Hernandez is a low level prospect that has a pretty big future

Anyone else think this could open up the trade talks between the Braves and the Reds over Griffey?

It was kinda floated out there before but most people said money was the main issue.

Perhaps we can still send them Bronson if they still have an inflated value of him... Nothing against Bronson but I don't think he will ever replicate his 2006 numbers that we are paying him for and the Braves really need some SP's...

Renteria was traded so they could pay Teixiera.... and because they have some young studs that can play infield..... they probably would take Griffey, but the Reds would have to pay.... better to find a deal so the money can go to pitching.

Atlanta might be opening salary room for Pay-Rod

I thought the theory on Teixiera was that they let Andrew Jones walk to pay for Tex (which would be about right dollar-wise). I would think that Renteria would be a separate component of their plan.
