Prado returns to NL East

Martin's now a Marlin, acquired along with David Phelps from the Yankees for Nate Eovaldi and Garrett Jones. I still miss Martin, and seeing him 20-plus times a year in a Marlins uniform is going to smart. The Fish may still end up signing James Shields, and if they do they will give the Nats...

Retiring #10 and welcoming back #14

On second thought, the Braves should hold onto Martin, unless someone is willing to overpay. Consider: More teams than not need a third baseman.
