Perhaps the most amazing part of this deal is what the Braves had to give away.
Frank Wren was obviously very reluctant to trade away any of his top four pitching prospects (Julio Teheran, Arodys Vizcaino, Mike Minor, Randall Delgado).
The Braves missed out on Carlos Beltran and Hunter Pence because of this reluctancy.
However, the Braves managed to land Michael Bourn by trading away Jordan Schafer and three lesser-ranked pitching prospects.
It is very impressive that the Braves made a trade for a nearly ideal addition to their team, while managing to hold on to their top prospects.
The Braves seem to have received the best deal of any team that made a trade.
In order to receive Beltran, the Giants had to surrender their top pitching prospect, Zach Wheeler.
The Phillies had to give up their top pitching prospect and top hitting prospect, as well as two other prospects, to receive Hunter Pence.
