Big, big baseball trade today, as the Atlanta Braves dealt Martin Prado and four prospects to the Diamondbacks in exchange for Justin Upton. The deal gives the Braves an Upton brother in center field and left, to go with Gold Glover Jason Heyward in right, for one of the stronger offensive or defensive outfields baseball has seen in quite some time.
It also gives the Braves an amazing set of siblings, an alignment of brothers even more impressive than Jesus, Matty, and Felipe Alou in San Francisco, Cal and Billy "Fuck Face" Ripken in Baltimore, the ill-fated one year Brian/Marcus Giles experiment in San Diego, and of course, their own Chipper and Andruw Jones. Arizona got some minor leaguers, but really, who cares? Brothers! Same team! One-game wild-card playoff, here we come, Braves fans!
