The wife of former Atlanta Braves star Andruw Jones has accused him of dragging her down a staircase, grabbing her neck, and saying he wanted to kill her. Police reports say this happened at 1:30 A.M. after Jones had been asked to help prepare their suburban Atlanta home for Christmas morning. Jones is free on bond after being arrested on a battery charge.

Former Baltimore Orioles manager Earl Weaver died this morning of a heart while on a cruise. Weaver, who inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1996, won four American Leauge pennants and one World Series title in 1970. Weaver was best known for run-ins with umpires who ejected him 91 times during his career, including both ends of a doubleheader. That episode appears in one of four Baseball Hall of Shame books under the chapter "Heave Ho Ho's, most inglorious ejections from a ballgame."

Arizona sends outfielder Justin Upton and infielder Chris Johnson to Atlanta in exchange for Martin Prado, righthander Randall Delgado, and three minor leaguers - infielder Brandon Drury, shortstop Nick Ahmed, and Zeke Spruill. Upton is expected to provide power for Atlanta while Johnson is expected to split time at third base and provide bench strength.

Huge, huge trade. The NL East is going to be otherworldly this year.
