    Any Braves trade for Arenado should start with Riley. He becomes blocked at 3B with the addition of Arenado, and Drew Waters profiles as the better long term option in left field. In addition, he is the perfect pro-ready prospect for the Rockies to ask for, immediately filling in at 3B for the Rockies, and maximizing his power potential at Coors Field. Giving up a premier prospect in Wright allows the Braves to ask for the Rockies to ask for money of Arenado’s contract, which allows the Braves to acquire the star without crippling them financially, and allowing them to extend Freeman. The Braves sweeten the deal with Inciarte, who can provide Gold-Glove caliber defense in the monstrous Denver outfield. The Braves end up with the best defensive infield in baseball in addition to an excellent offensive core for the foreseeable future. The Rockies shed salary, acquire young controllable pitching, and get back a pro-ready replacement at 3B, built perfectly for the hitters paradise of Coors Field.
