According to a Major League source, the Braves will get Upton and Chris Johnson in exchange for Prado, shortstop prospect Nick Ahmed, Class A infielder Brandon Drury and right-handed pitchers Randall Delgado and Zeke Spruill. The deal is pending the completion of physicals.

**** yeah, the Upton bros and Heyward in the outfield. I'm ****ing excited for this ****.

My ace? I'm not a nats fan. I was just making a logical prediction.

The Nationals want to "limit" Starsburg again this year.

Dumb move TBH, I think Starsburg is the best pitcher in the MLB but apparently to fragile to compete a whole season and every start.

Oh and Trout > Harper

Says who? They plan to have him pitch at least 200 innings this year which most pitchers do in the first place. Even if Trout was better, are you 5? I'm not here to get into a one whisker on my chin **** talking contest with you.

Dude lighten up bro haha

I actually like the Nationals, but Braves will always be my team.

All I'm saying about that is a GM should never say in public that his ace will be "limited" that hurt them last year when he was cold during the playoffs.

Strasburg being out didn't do anything to the team. If the bullpen could've held their late lead in Game 5 vs STL they would've gone on to play SF.
