Braves get Ankiel, Farnsworth

The Braves have acquired outfielder Rick Ankiel and reliever Kyle Farnsworth from the Royals, CBSSports.com has learned.

The Royals will get reliever Jesse Chavez, outfielder Gregor Blanco and minor-league left-hander Tim Collins. The key to the deal for Kansas City was Collins, who the Braves just got from the Blue Jays in the Yunel Escobar-Alex Gonzalez trade.

Ankiel provides the Braves with a much-needed bat, an improvement in center field since Nate McLouth was sent to the minor leagues. Farnsworth returns to the Braves, where he pitched very well after being acquired at the July 31 deadline in 2005. Farnsworth, who grew up in Georgia, always liked pitching for the Braves.

Collins is only 5-foot-7, but in 41 games this year in Double-A, he has 87 strikeouts and just 19 walks in 51 innings.

Yeah I also think Blanco brought a lot of energy during the Braves winning streak and since returning to the minors the Braves have been slightly flat.
Oh Gman-25 you left Wagner outta the bullpen
