Bad News Looming?

According to the Dallas Morning News, the Atlanta Braves are in serious discussions with Texs to acquire Mark Teixeira. The Braves would give up top prospect Jarrod Saltalamacchia and a couple of pitching prospects.

Ok, if an inconsistent two months of baseball doesn't have me nervous enough, this deal does. If the Braves pull this off and add a bat like Teixeira's, the Mets are going to have a serious contender on their hands. He would be the perfect fit for that organization and something tells me it's going to happen, especially since Saltamacchia is expendable because they have McCann behind the dish.

Side note to this story: The Braves have a left-handed pitching prospect named
lefty Jo-Jo Reyes.

Not good at all. I can't believe the Braves are willing to give up "Salti" for him. I would love "Salti" on the Mets but there's no way the Braves would give him to us. Maybe now there's hope.
