Fake Teams' Fake Trades Go NL East.

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!)
