Kazmir To The Braves?

This is the scariest thing I've seen in a long, long least they'd give up Marte, though:

Apr. 1 - The Devil Rays are in talks to trade left-handers Scott Kazmir and Bobby Seay to the Atlanta Braves for third basemen Andy Marte and outfielder Ryan Langerhans, Peter Gammons reports. The Devil Rays, who have been looking for a power hitter to no avail, contacted the Braves earlier this week about parting with top prospect Marte.

“Our pitching is here,” manager Lou Piniella told the newspaper. “We’re not going anywhere for pitching. But we need to add another bat. We’re very thin, and one injury will really create a big problem for us.”

Marte, the Braves most promising prospect, would supplant Alex Gonzalez at third base to begin the season. While the Devil Rays had Kazmir penciled in as their number three starter, all indications are the Braves would have him start the season in Richmond, the home of their AAA minor league affiliate. Seay would remain in the Braves bullpen.
