UPDATED 11:15pm CT 7/30/2007 Possibly sending Dotel to the BRAVES???

The drama continues... And to think those pesky Mariners fans thought they had escaped without dealing Wlad for Dotel. Maybe, maybe not.-RR

Braves Close To Acquiring Octavio Dotel
Interesting development via Ken Rosenthal: the Braves are close to a deal for Royals' closer Octavio Dotel.  They apparently have made a better offer than finalists Cleveland and Los Angeles.

Royals GM Dayton Moore knows his way around Atlanta's farm system, of course.  He had all kinds of player development roles within the Braves organization.  The Braves' top three prospects heading into the season per Baseball America were Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Elvis Andrus, and Matt Harrison.  With those three out of the picture perhaps Moore is going for outfielder Brandon Jones or first baseman Scott Thorman.

Quite a day for Atlanta...now to snag a starter...






AGAIN, we may see more Braves coming to KC. Not that I mind. I like GMDM, and I loved John Shuerholz from days of old.


**** UPDATE 1 - mlbtraderumors.com cites MLB.com saying that John Shuerholz hasn't even negotiated with Dayton Moore yet. Balentien may still be close!
