It seems David Littlefield was handed Adam LaRoche on a platter a few days ago but would only offer up Nate McLouth and John Grabow, according to a couple sources in the industry.
The Braves moved on.
I did not hear, nor was it offered from either source, who the Braves were targeting.
We do know that the Braves are looking for an ‘economical’ leadoff hitter and there has been speculation they might trade Andruw Jones. Perhaps Schuerholz was after Chris Duffy?
We also know the Braves are looking for setup guys for Wickman, so perhaps Mike Gonzalez had his name thrown around?
More when/if I hear it.
