Braves get: Justin Upton, Chris Johnson
Diamondbacks get: Martin Prado, Randall Delgado, three other prospects

Big-time deal that gives Atlanta both of the Upton brothers without sacrificing 'much' of their prospect depth, though Delgado was arguably their top minor leaguer. Arizona gets a very good player in Prado that fills their hole at third base.

I haven't seen anything special out of Delgado so I'm not too concerned about the longterm ramifications of this one. Especially getting Justin Upton at such a young age. This definitely makes up for the BJ Upton signing; who I deemed to be a more expensive version, and less impactful player than Michael Bourn.

Gonna miss Prado, he was a professional.

Except that Griffey would...maybe...sell tickets, I'd take Nevin over him in a heartbeat. Now that I've said this, of course, Junior will win the MVP as the Reds win the '03 Series.
