Report: Furcal to Braves

Or sounds like he was using the A's to drive up the price. Either way, Escobar and Kelly Johnson are 2 very desirable middle infielders that are now available. I think Escobar could be a star.

Why would Johnson be on the block?

And without really following them too closely to say for sure, I would take this as a sign that the Peavy to Atlanta talks are back on and that is where Escobar will end up. Including him was one of the earlier stumbling blocks, I believe.

Because they can put Furcal at 2B, and they still have Prado.

From what I read, it was the choice of prospects to go with Escobar that was the stumbling block in the Peavy talks. It was kind of surprising that they would include Flowers in a trade for Vasquez but not for Peavy. The article I read also said that the Braves wouldn't include Morton - which seemed odd to me. I'd let em have Morton. Just don't let em have Hanson. But yeah, I would think the Peavy to the Braves talks start up again.

It's good to have Furcal back... if he stays healthy.

First, he walks away from the only 4 year deal on the table and now (according to MLBTraderumors) he ignored a 'gentlemen's agreement' to try and get the Dodgers to up their offer.

Does this guy just not want a starting job in '09? :confused:

Nope. First he turned down an incentive laden offer that could have been worth as much as 30m over two years, then came the A's. This guy is working backwards.
