We all know Dayton Moore likes ex-Braves, but to exactly what extent are we talking about here? Let's take a little look see shall we?
Current 40 Man Roster ex-Braves
Tony Pena Jr
9 out of 40 = 22.5%
If Farnsworth wasn't on the DL, these would all be 25 man roster guys (except for Davies and Chen, as Chen took Davies's spot), so 8 out of 25 = 32%
ex-Braves in farm system

Trades we should make with the Braves
Kala Ka'aihue for Kila Ka'aihue - Kala plays in the Braves' minors. Dayton obviously dislikes Kila, so let's trade him for his brother Kala who would then have the bonus of being an ex-Brave.
Guillen for Francoeur - Seriously, Guillen isn't already an ex-Brave? 9 teams and counting... Hopefully.
ex-Mariners on the 40-man
Jamey Wright* - ST sign and release, thanks kcemigre
These are all active too. That makes the ex-Braves&Mariners quotient 14 out of 25 = 56%
The newest connection: ex-Rangers
Tug Hulett - thanks to kcemigre
Travis Metcalf*-not on active roster
72% of active Royals have a connection to the Braves, Mariners, or Rangers.
Dayton's unnatural obsession with Peña's
Tony Peña, Jr.
Peña Hernandez, I mean Luis
ex-Braves, ex-Royals, and ex-Mariners
The littlest ex-Brave is: Joakim Soria
Thanks go to BabyBlues for pointing this out!
This post was thoroughly half-assed. Did I miss anybody?
Thanks RoyalsRetro, kcemigre and BabyBlues!
