    Why is urshela on this team when we could have just brought up biggio and put solarte at short until diaz is ready.

    Close?
    Donaldson seems to be playing hurt or is in huge decline (exit velo is way down, plus the arm issue). If he's now more of a 130 wRC+ bat with average defense and Happ keeps performing the way he has then I think Happ is going to get a better return since everyone always needs pitching.

    More or less Donaldson is still the more valuable player but could have less trade value given their positions.

    A team that is emerging as a trade partner for Donaldson is the Braves. They have a bunch of good prospects too. Plus we know their GM likes to pull trades

    Josh Donaldson stealing Jose Bautista's job at 3b in Atlanta is a story I never thought I'd see, but one I must have.

    Donaldson had an .837 OPS in June last year and a .707 OPS in July and then he absolutely went off in August and September. Josh played games not fully healthy at the beginning of the year and hasn't been barreling the ball up yet, but I think it's a mistake to think he's in a pretty major decline. He's going to get hot.

    The Braves have a lot of good arms in their system. Getting 2 of them would be amazing

    Also we know their GM is ok with trading away high potential arms

    Just sayin

    You can say that about most GMs in the game. They all trade a young pitcher or position player at some point that turns into something pretty good. Shapiro traded Chris Archer for Mark Derosa once upon a time as well.

    If the Braves keep it up, Donaldson to Atlanta makes too much sense.

    Wonder if we could pry Kyle Wright and Mike Soroka from them

    Shatkins will never trade with AA unless it's a clear win.

    Funny as I was thinking Atlanta for some time now as a Trade Partner for us and that it would be best to let this season Die and get on with the Future !!! As I would rather watch the up and downs of the youth as they grow !
    Then these old dudes trying and continue to Epically fail as they are ! Might be The Rum talking but I think I would expand on it to include more then Donaldson ! Have Martin and Pillar join him also ! Even pay half of Donaldson’s and Martins salary remaining
    And get a haul in return !!! Plus the savings provide enough surplus to Dfa Morales
    Which is a win win even before the potential return of young arms we could and might get

    i mentioned atlanta a few weeks ago. JD for riley and soroka. Might have to add Happ.

    End the Vlad 3B experiment. Destined to fail.
