    Default **Official MLB Trade Deadline Thread**

    No need to cloud the Dodger thread will all this trade stuff. So lets start it off with a big one. According to Ken Rosenthal the Texiera deal is done (pending medical reviews).

    Atlanta gave up a lot but Tex is one hell of a player.

    Yeah, it's kind of a perfect situation for the Braves:

    --They have a definite opening at 1B
    --They already have McCann at C so Saltamacchia becomes expendable
    --Teixeira played college ball at GA Tech.

    That they get exclusive rights to Teixeira next year makes the deal worth doing. Although the Braves are pretty thin on pitching, aren't they? So losing two prospects might hurt. And I wonder what impact this will have on their UFA offer to Andruw Jones.

    Regardless, the NL East and Wild Card races will get tighter if this deal goes down.

    If Jones is really seeking $20mil/yr, I'd be surprised to see Atlanta still in the discussion.

    I'm glad the Angels did not trade for Texiera. I don't think he's worth Kotchman & Saunders

    Same here. Actually Jones leaving was probably one of the reasons Atlanta went after Tex. They need some power in the lineup when Andruw leaves next year.

    Really? Tex isn't having his typical year but dude is one of the best power hitters in the game.

    His numbers this year are still phenomenal when you consider he's missed about 25 games.

    He's definitely worth Kotchman and Saunders... problem is Texas wanted more than that (IIRC they wanted Brandon Wood as well).

    Rosenthal has the Braves as the leader to get Dotel.
