Yep. Braves, if they trade him, could be making a monumental mistake. Will be interesting to see if this goes anywhere. I don't see the Braves as a natural trading partner for the Reds, though. Braves have a CF, 1B and plenty of pitching.
Agreed they are not the most natural trading partner for the Reds, as their biggest needs seem to be the similar: SS/3B/LF.
A three-team deal could make sense here, but those are way too hard to predict.
Also remember that this is the same team that traded Yunel Escobar because he didn't fit in. Time to be opportunistic Walt.
