Braves working on long-term deal for Martin
Looks like the Office’s favorite Brave will be with the organization for awhile.
The Braves are going to try to sign Martin Prado to a multi-year deal, given his current standing as heir to Chipper Jones’s spot at third.

Martin is a credit to the organization. He never complains, does everything well and always plays hard. He’s having his best season yet, on pace for 45 doubles, 73 RBI, 20 steals and a .376 OBP. And no Brave is more consistent — he’s the anti-Uggla.
Martin will be 29 on Opening Day, so he has a lot of good years left. Glad to hear he’ll be spending them in a Braves uni.
