Bonifacio we Hardly Knew Ye?

Dave O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the Braves have expressed interest in Jays utility man and speedster Emilio Bonifacio.  AA said the other day that he's not expecting to make any more moves, especially at the winter meetings, but that things come up sometimes.

A move here would certainly make sense, seeing as the Braves have quite a bit of pitching depth, which is what the Jays are looking for.  It would be tough to replace a guy that can do everything Boni can, given his speed and defensive flexibility, but at the end of the day, he's going to be an arbitration-eligible bench guy, so it shouldn't take a whole lot of arm-twisting to pry him out of AA's hands.

I'd be all about a trade that brings over another starter good enough to move Happ to the bullpen, especially if Darren Oliver doesn't come back, but a strong relief piece would be nice regardless.
