The Braves are up to something. How can they not be after their historic collapse in September?
No one should be immune from trade discussions. And, apparently, no one is.
Yes, the Braves would move right-hander Jair Jurrjens and left fielder Martin Prado, the two players whose names surfaced in trade discussions with the Royals, according to Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star.

Jurrjens, who turns 26 on Jan. 29, was a candidate to start the All-Star Game last season, but he made only seven starts after the break because of a right knee injury. He also missed time with an oblique problem at the start of last season and nearly two months with a strained left hamstring in 2010 -- and, lest anyone forget, he had a shoulder scare in the spring of '10 and other shoulder issues in '06 and '07.
