ESPN (Olney) just reported: Casey Kotchman + Stephen Marek to the Braves.
In the very short-term, excellent for us. I can't forsee Teixeira being in tonight's lineup, and Kotchman won't be. In the less short-term, not great. Teixeira adds legitimacy to a lineup that aside from being annoying as crap really doesn't strike fear into anyone.
In the long-term? Well, we'll see if the Angels pony up and try to blow him away with an extension offer this season.
