    Just sign Kimbrel. If whatís being reported is accurate, CK wants a fair deal. I really think Vizís shoulder is shot.

    The only solution for Newk. His career isnít over but it will be if he canít some command and control. Really think he should transition to the bullpen and should focus on attacking hitters with his fastball

    Newk isn't getting swings and misses. Not just control. Stuff hasn't looked as good.

    Sign Kimbrel after the draft and Hope last year isnít a sign of whatís to come, piece it together until then.

    According to MLBTR, Kimbrel's now looking for either Davis (3/52) or Britton (3/39) money. If 3/39 gets him, this deal should be done ASAP. I wouldn't be wild about 3/52, but CK is younger that Davis

    I’d really hate to lose the draft pick and money attached but we need Kimbrel plain and simple if we wanna be competitive. He wants to come home so give him a fair offer and just get it done. The back end of our bullpen is not good at all.

    MLBTR--

    "His(Viz--my add) absence should lead to more save opportunities for co-closer A.J. Minter, who converted his lone chance on April 8."

    I'm not enthralled with this thought at all. Has Minter ever had a 1-2-3 9th inning?

    I say sign Kimbrel. I know a lot of you don't want to lose the draft pick but if you look at Braves #1 picks since 1968, aside from maybe 12 or so picks (too soon to count the last few years though, that list will make you want to puke. Not all picks become super stars.

    We lose our 3rd pick not our first.

    A fair value deal for Kimbrel would be around 14M per year, 2 years with an option for a third (I would not guarantee the third year). Of course for 2019 his salary would have to be prorated. This applies to a scenario where we sign him after the draft.

    The draft pick we give up if we sign him before the draft is worth around 10M. AA should certainly take that into account when deciding whether to sign him before or after the draft and make the appropriate adjustments for what he offers under the two scenarios.

    But I was told we didn't need Kimbrel because our current closer was better, right [MENTION=62]AerchAngel[/MENTION]?

    Who was it that said Newk didnít have an option left and then vanished rather than explain himself?
