If Coppy pulls this off as a straight 1-for-1 he's the GOAT. If he gets the Padres to kick in money? ...

A straight swap means Kemp is going to cost us only $8-9M more than Olivera's dead money would have. I'm in.

Olivera for Kemp is indeed a one-for-one. #Padres would be sending $ to #Braves. Only last-sec medical would kill deal now.

Could totally get behind this idea.

1. We get rid of Olivera's albatross contract (not to mention the awful circumstance we have with him, too)
2. We take on (at least a large portion of) Kemp's albatross contract - the difference being that Kemp's large contract is actually useful to our present and immediate future needs, whereas many thought Olivera would never play in ATL again.
3. Kemp gives us a power source at the corner OF spot that we need desperately for the next couple/few years. Basically a lock for a mid-20s HR total if he's healthy.
4. Acquiring Kemp enables us to trade Markakis (or Inciarte) for other needs. ie, pitching, catching, a young OF, or more 'spects.

If this goes through, no way is Markakis a Brave next year, imo.

So our lineup to finish the year (in September) is:

CF Inciarte
2B Albies
1B Freeman
LF Kemp
RF Markakis
SS Swanson
3B Peterson/Garcia
C Flowers

...I don't hate it.

How about the possibilities for next year with a new catcher, a new 3B, and Mallex in OF likely replacing Markakis? 

Things trending upwards.
