Yikes.

I'm not sold on Harrison. Yeah, he made the AS team this year, but he's an imminently replaceable arm. Soft-tosser.

Saltalamacchia was blocked by McCann and he still has problems defensively.

Harrison has been a solid 2/3 the past two seasons, not that easy to replace. Feliz has been a stud, surgery or not.

Three all stars, and Salty could have been one this year to make four.

It's a very very good deal. Like everyone said, Johnson is a great replacement for Diaz, or anyone that gets hurt or needs to rest in the outfield. And the pitcher we acquired isn't a rental, and has a winning record on the second worst team in the show. I like the move a lot. JJ is garbage, and with Sheets looking good, and my boy bigorange15's boy (Minor) seemingly turning the corner, things are looking pretty good pitching wise. Let's go Braves!!!

I don't mind the trade, this isn't MLB2k12, you actually have to give up assets in trades.

Here are some stats that are positive towards Maholm.

Hate to see Viz go, but I think this is a decent trade for ATL. Good back-of-the-rotation starter, keeps Medlen in the pen, and a good bat against lefties that can play all positions in the outfield.

Now go throw the farm at Felix Hernandez.

Medlen line tonight: 5 IP 0 ER 4 K 73 pitches.... I kinda feel sorry for the guy because I still feel Wren will try to get a bullpen guy. Or at least he should anyways.

I really liked the idea of just going with him.

Not opposed to this trade. I really like Reed Johnson. Both players will be in uniform tomorrow.. So something is going to happen to Jurrjens. Will be interesting.

He also pitches great at Turner.. which is a good thing, although Danny Ugg use to straight rake at Turner when he was a Marlin.

I wanted to get Reed Johnson a couple years ago. He is good pick up and is good in pinch hitting situations.

Nice job by Theo Epstein, anyway. That's exactly the kind of trade you want to make at the deadline.

Risky move by Wren; there's a reasonable chance that he just traded a future all-star pitcher for two stiffs. There's also a reasonable chance that Vizcaino never does anything.

Vizcaino's definitely the guy you want to trade if you have to give up one of the top-tier pitchers, though.
Yeah, we'll just have to see how it pans out. But considering the situation of both teams and their needs, it looks like it may be a good trade

If Chipper has not tweeted about the trade then it's not official.
