Braves make BlockBuster trade

The Texas Rangers have agreed to send first baseman Mark Teixeira and lefty reliever Ron Mahay to Atlanta for catcher/first baseman Jarrod Saltalamacchia, plus Minor Leaguers Neftali Feliz and Elvis Andrus along with player to be named.

This is a huge trade. Teixeira can really play. The Braves are currently 3.5 games back in the NL East to the Mets and 2.5 games back in the NL Wild Card race to the Dodgers/Dimondbacks. This could make september really exciting.
