Maybe this as a possible Trea replacement?

I love this!

Never fall far enough in the draft.

Turner has 24 career home runs. 9 have come against the Braves, 6 in Atlanta (or Cobb County).

We should trade him to Atlanta for Freddy Freeman and a hot prospect.

Never playing against the Nationals will really hurt Freeman's value.

And I think he still has more upside. I can see him really upping his bunting game, for one.

He's going to contend for an MVP at some point.

Couldn't agree more.  The kid's outstanding in every way.

Hit .297/.371/.525 with 11 steals in 30 games after returning from injury.

I think he has the potential to win an MVP. Let's say he were to play 150 games, slash that post injury line which was still worse than his rookie year, and make a run at 70 steals with a good performance on defense, that has to be a contender for MVP. I know Dee Gordon didn't get MVP buzz in 2015, but he had only four homers. Turner is a good bet for about 25 homers in a full season.

Hoping to see him go nuts this playoff series.

I don't care if he goes nuts in this series so much as if he plays in the next series.   8)

Why do you say that, BiL?

But seriously, if you project him as a .350+ OBP guy with ~.200 ISO, I'm not sure I want him bunting.   Suppose he bunts 10 more times for hits?  He'd likely get on 3 -4 times if he swung away, and one of those is likely to be for extra bases.  IF you restrict it to times when no one is on, maybe fewer hits.  I suppose it may force the corners to play in for bunts, lessening their range a bit, but I guess the 3d baseman already is in some for him.
