Apparently , it was just Santa because it was not the Braves. Rumor has it that a trade with the Orioles that would have sent Adam Jones to the Braves feel through earlier this week. If initial reports are correct, consider that a Christmas gift. The early talk was that the Orioles wanted Martin Prado, Jair Jurrjens, and a prospect. As much as I admire Adam Jones, he is not worth that to the Braves. Prado is entirely too valuable to be in a three-for-one trade. Some accounts say that the request was for any two pitchers and a prospect. Either way, there is no movement and most importantly, Martin was not sent packing in an unequal trade!
Happy and Safe Holidays to you all!
