It took fantasy owners about a month to buy into power-hitting Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Alex Gonzalez. It appears that now the Atlanta Braves are believers as well.
Gonzalez was traded back to the National League on Wednesday along with a pair of raw, 20-year-old prospects for shortstop Yunel Escobar and pitcher Jo-Jo Reyes. Can you imagine this trade taking place before the season? Can you imagine this trade happening before the season in a fantasy league?
