1) Look, I love Evan Gattis. Great story. Great young man. Love his talent. BUT, he is going to belong in the American League. Will he be Atlanta's catcher in three years? Will he be the starting catcher the year the Braves move into the new stadium? No. No way. He'll be 30 then. So trade him. Trade him for David Price. You put him on the table and Tampa Bay would be nuts to say not to that - a catcher who can hit and be a DH that is under control for four more years? Holy crap. They ought to jump on that.2) Good Lord get this team another reliever - or two. The bullpen needs help. Luis Avilan is in AAA. Ian Thomas is now in AA. I know they'll get one. Can't wait to discover which one it will be. Sure, I'd love Andrew Miller, but so would 10 other teams.3) Jose Peraza got three more hits Monday night. He's hitting .349 on the season with both clubs. He's 20. He's 20. Did I say he's 20? Amazing prospect.4) Tommy La Stella isn't going to give his spot away, but man it's hard to imagine Peraza not being the starting second baseman next season.5) Andrelton Simmons can certainly play defense, and I needed no statistic to tell me that.6) So Justin Upton didn't hustle on a play Monday night. That's not good.7) Dan Uggla is a SF Giant. Good for him. Glad he's gone, but we will see what happens.8) Julio Teheran is a stud. Ace pitcher. Very good young arm.
