Almost a Deal: LaRoche to Pittsburgh

Well it seems that the Braves are close to acquiring another new member of the team, Mike Gonzalez. After days of chatter the Pirates are willing to part ways with Gonzalez for Adam LaRoche. One thing holds the Braves back from sealing the deal. Mike's elbow is somewhat of a concern for the Braves. They want to check on that before moving on. WOW!! In one day the Braves bullpen has gone from still questionable but with a closer to pretty dang good. Soriano and Gonzalez could really turn things around fast for a pen that's had trouble finding an indentity the past two years. Once again, John Schuerholz comes through. Now, what to do with Marcus Giles?
