The Atlanta Braves may not be conducting an extensive search for a new general manager after all. In the wake of the firing of Frank Wren earlier this week, the team had named John Hart as the interim GM, and it now appears that all that has to happen for the interim tag to be removed is for Hart to give the word.

It speaks volumes that Emilio Bonifacio has started the last three games in center field for the Atlanta Braves. If a hitter who has managed to go just 1-for-16 in September continues to start instead of B.J. Upton going forward, one can easily expect Upton's time with the team may be nearing an end.

Could Sunday's start at home for the Tampa Bay Rays end up being the last time David Price pitches for the team?

There is no room for Nick Franklin in Seattle as long as Robinson Cano is on the Mariners roster, unless Franklin learns and adjusts to a new position.

And there is no room in Atlanta's rotation for Alex Wood. The hard-throwing 23-year-old moved back to the bullpen on Friday as Atlanta went with Gavin Floyd as the fifth starter.

With the Braves needing production at second base and a talent like Wood to offer in a deal, could the two teams work something out?
