    Didn't Mark Teixeira play college ball at Georgia Tech? He might be willing to give the Braves a "hometown discount".

    Boras won't allow that.

    If Teixara truly wants to offer a hometown discount, then he'll do it. Boras works for Teixara, not the other way around.

    Though I would think that when a guy hires Boras as an agent then he's not really the type to start offering home town discounts. IMO, he's in it to get every single penny.

    I'd give them Dunn AND Hatte for that Braves package. Move Griffey to left and bring up Bruce for RF and Votto for 1B. That improves our defense at 3 positions (LF, RF, C) and gives us some more legit young prospects for the future. That's Wayne's kinda deal. The problem is that I think the Braves would rather have Texiera than Dunn and Hatte...I know I would. :
