Could adding Donaldson mean Braves shop Camargo?

The Atlanta Braves made their first moves of the offseason on Tuesday announcing the return of catcher Brian McCann to the ball club as well as agreeing to a one-year, $23 million deal with All-Star third-baseman Josh Donaldson from the Toronto Blue Jays. 

John and Hugh of The Morning Show want your initial reactions to the Braves moves--you can tweet or comment below:

John believes the moves, especially to bring in Josh Donaldson at third-base, means there's about to be an even bigger move(s).

"Maybe this is an indicator that you would part with Johan Camargo (the Braves current third-baseman) as part of that deal." 

But John doesn't stop with just Camargo in a package deal. If the Braves want an ace, a la a Corey Kluber from the Indians, they'll have to offer more.

"You have a guy in the minors in Christian Pache, a center fielder, who could be a leadoff guy; can fly around the bases...Let's do a mythical trade: You traded Christian Pache, Johan Camargo and Touki Toussaint to the Cleveland Indians for Corey Kluber."

He reiterates that the Braves would be getting a "flat out ace" is this hypothetical trade. Would you make the trade Braves' fans? 

Because John is convinced that the Donaldson signing means a larger trade package that includes Camargo.
