Don’t be surprised if the Braves acquire …

Ervin Santana. Before the recent series against the Royals Fredi talked about how the Braves had previously tried to trade for the Kansas City right-handers, who’s been quite good in 2012.

Santana is available but the price will be steep, say insiders. With Huddy done for the year, it’s a price the Braves may be willing to pay.

    Id say stand pat.. There is not another SP out there that can replace Huddy any better than Beachy. Plug him right in and not miss a beat. Focus on getting a lefty in the pen, maybe a veteran bench player.. Our cupboard of pitching prospects is all we got on the farm. I hear the notion we need a postseason tested SP, I just dont buy that myth 100%. See the 2008 Tampa Bay Rays. They also had/ve good young pitching..

    I agree, why should a team with an eight-game lead jump into a panic trade when it’s about to bring back a guy with the league’s best ERA when he got hurt? Even if you have to go with a four-man rotation featuring Wood, for a turn or two until Beachy is ready to give you 5 or 6 innings against a major-league batting order.
