Fake Teams' Fake Trades Go NL East.

New, 2 comments

After going through the AL with some fake trades, I'll try my hand at some NL deals.

There is now little doubt that my nights spent at a Holiday inn Express have made my qualifications for proposing trades visible from space.

Atlanta Braves

The Braves need bullpen help with an eye towards a 2008 closer.

Trade:  C Jarrod Saltalamacchia to the Toronto Blue Jays for reliever Brandon League.

New York Mets

The Mets need a 2B.

Trade:  P Aaron Heilman to the Kansas City Royals for 2B Mark Grudzalaniek.

Florida Marlins

The Marlins need a CF.

Trade:  RHP Dontrelle Willis to the Seattle Mariners for CF Jeremy Reed, AAA C Jeff Clement and LHP Eric O'Flaherty.

Philadelphia Phillies

The Phillies need a 3B.

Trade:  AAA C Carlos Ruiz to the Milwaukee Brewers for UT Tony Graffanino.

Washington Nationals

The Nationals need starting pitching.

Trade: CF Ryan Church to the Oakland A's for LHP Brad Halsey.

Sometimes forcing trades when free agent signings or doing nothing are the more prudent paths can prove a difficult task.

But not for Fake Teams!  (Fists on hips, feet slightly spread, chest puffed out and cape blowing behind us!)
