The Atlanta Braves traded third baseman Juan Uribe and utility player Kelly Johnson to the Mets for right-handed starters John Gant and Rob Whalen. Juan Uribe’s time in Atlanta was short, but productive. Uribe .272/.331/.409 and Johnson .275/.321/.451 have very solid offensive numbers while Uribe is also a good defensive presence despite his age, and Johnson can play five or...

It took a little while to get here, with an unexpected obstacle or two, but we’ve got a six-player trade between the Braves and the Dodgers. The youngest player involved is 27, the average age of the players is about 31, and this year they’ve all combined to be worth -1.2 WAR. Sounds to me […]
The Los Angeles Dodgers have wrapped up the NL West. The Colorado Rockies aren’t playing for anything.

With both teams largely going through the motions, the Dodgers will take the opportunity to switch things […]
In a move that was overdue, the Dodgers on Saturday re-signed Juan Uribe to a 2-year contract.
