Atlanta Braves general manager Alex Anthopoulos had a message for some fans who believe the team needs one more big move.

In an appearance at the team’s annual fan fest, Anthopoulos was jokingly confronted by some fans who thought he should make a trade for Chicago White Sox pitcher Dylan Cease. Anthopoulos found the whole thing hilarious, but he dropped a bit of honesty on the fans in his response.

“We already tried. Expensive,” Anthopoulos responded.

That asking price has definitely limited Cease’s market, even though the White Sox have supposedly been open to moving him all offseason. A new team was recently linked to a potential Cease trade, but nothing appears imminent and the price remains high.

The Braves have, in all likelihood, already made their big pitching move for the offseason. Anthopoulos will not want to sell the farm at this stage.
