    Rumblings & Grumblings

    Meanwhile, clubs that have talked to Atlanta say there isn't a buyer in baseball trying to be more aggressive or more creative than the Braves. "They're in on everybody," says one GM. "Starters. Relievers. Bats. Older guys. Young guys. They're heating up to do something."

    The Braves are balking at dealing Jarrod Saltalamacchia or the dynamic Yunel Escobar. But other clubs report they are willing to talk about shortstop prospect Elvis Andrus and power left-hander Dan Smith.

    "We're not talking about guys at the level of a [Jeff] Francoeur or a [Brian] McCann, guys like that," says an executive of one team. "But they've still got some real nice pieces to move. They're just not gigantic pieces."

    There are indications the Braves made a run at Dmitri Young a few weeks ago, didn't like the asking price and headed in other directions.
