Because that trade doesn't make much sense for the Braves. Wren has basically said he's part of their "untouchable" young core along with Heyward and Freeman. He's already shown flashes of the potential gold glove defense he was lauded for as a prospect, and his bat was much better than expected. Atlanta trades him, and don't get a SS in return, they're left with a gaping hole and an important position.
I mean if Atlanta knows Simmons could get someone of Justin Upton's caliber (a more proven player than Olt) then why wouldn't they just make that deal themselves?
Was Andrus going to be a part of the deal? Because if he was, then yeah, I'd probably do it.
