The hot name right now for the Braves to pursue this offseason is David Price, and it makes sense.
The Braves need an ace to anchor a young staff, and the Rays will likely be looking to move him for the right price.
The reason Wren would pull the trigger on obtaining Price would simply be his outstanding results. The former Cy Young Award winner is 71-39 with a 3.19 ERA in four full seasons in the American League.
The downside to acquiring Price would be losing one or two of Mike Minor, Julio Teheran, Alex Wood, Kris Medlen and Lucas Sims. The Braves would also likely have to include Christian Bethancourt as well as another positional prospect.
With Price, you are likely looking at two years in a Braves uniform as he'll be a free agent in 2016 after arbitration the next two offseasons.
Is it worth the risk of trading a future ace for having one for just two years?
It is worth noting the Braves could have an ace in Adam Wainwright if they hadn't traded him for a short stint with J.D. Drew.
This is the question Wren will wrestle with this offseason.
