The Braves are allegedly interested in him and in Mike Stanton. I don’t know that they’d pay what Stanton wants, but he’s made himself into one of the better lefty setup men in the game and would be a fine replacement for Mike Remlinger. Alfonzo’s lost his speed, but that’s not a big deal. He gets on base, which is something that the Braves desperately need, and could play either second or third. I’d prefer third, of course, but there’s a huge blob of wasted biomatter clogging that position.
