After reading one too many articles about trade ideas for the "desperate" Atlanta Braves, I figured it's time we took a journey back into franchise history and remembered the types of moves we've made in similar situations.

For every McGriff deal, there's been a Teixeira.

The deal may sound good at the time (finally! we got some offense!) but in a year you'll be kicking yourself for ever putting the idea out there.

I'm not saying don't trade Jeff Francoeur, Kelly Johnson or similar frustrating types, all I'm saying is don't go crazy with knee-jerk reactions begging for the team to make a bold move.

Sometimes it can screw up a team for years.
