Reading that we have some interest in him and the Angels may be involved also in some form of three way deal 8-)

I'm a fan of Prado. He's a good player who was hurt last year which explains the drop in his numbers. I like his versatility too. It really depends who we give up for him or if we trade Jones who else we get back.

I think that Prado is a good player, but we would have to get a lot more than just him if we trade Jones. As I have said before we should get the market value of Jones if trading him rather than our perceived value. One place I see him being extremely useful is at 2b if Roberts can't come back for the beginning of the season.

Why Prado. We have Adams, Antonelli, Andino, and Flaherty to sort through. Why take ABs away from those guys for a guy that won't be here in 2014 in a year we already know we won't be competing? What would Prado have added, a win or two? Shuffling deck chairs.

Call up Duquette. He's the one supposedly pursuing this deal 8-)

Again, can we get a link to the Angels' involvement?

Buck wants to win this season, Buck thinks he can win this season, Buck wants players he thinks he can win with this season, Buck probably looks at Prado as a "nugget". Right or wrong I'd say those are the reasons they are pursuing him.

Right or wrong, it seems like we have more than a passing interest in Prado... so I see something potentially happening soon. I don't think it's going to cost that much to get him. Maybe Robert Andino or a grade B prospect 8-)

If the Braves are willing to trade Prado for Andino you have to wonder what scares them about Prado.

Where do you see this? Are you assuming that because his name came up in the Jones discussion that we're interested? Can you please provide a link to any of this?

Right now I would be more comfortable with Prado then Roberts 8-)
