    Wow I’m pleasantly surprised! If we could get Marte and Kimbrel we’d be in business.

    Come on, AA. This is obviously not a huge deal since Ball isnít all that exciting, but this is not a good sign for our deadline plans. Surely heís not dumb enough to actually go for it.

    He knows one person isn’t gonna move the needle enough. I’d guess he has other things he knows he can do to help out also.

    He can always trade Joc --- once the Braves go 5-11 out of the break before the deadline.

    Has a mutual option for next season? Puts together a solid half for the Braves and maybe they look into a longer deal in the off-season. Could be a platoon option moving forward or he’s gone in 3 months. Either way I don’t mind this.

    Passan: Now: Don't expect Atlanta to be in the mix for any big names, sources told ESPN, unless it goes on a huge run. And that's not going to be easy. Atlanta's first 18 games after the break are against teams that are .500 or better. That stretch runs past the July 30 deadline.

    His option for next year is worth 10 million. Is a platoon bat worth 10 mil?

    So what are yall thinking the lineup will be now?

    Swanson - SS
    Freeman - 1B
    Albies- 2B
    Riley - 3B
    Pederson - LF
    Almonte - RF
    Lucroy- C
    Inciarte-CF

    Heck, not too bad if TDA comes back as planned and maybe Ozuna.

    Either way, this sets us up to go for it these last few weeks and see what happens.

    I also agree that adding Marte and a closer and we have a good shot despite losing RAJ.

    This would have been the perfect move before Acuna went down.

    Braves just spent $2+M and a fringe prospect for a below replacement level player who can't play everyday.

    Yep. Everything's fixed.

    I want Arcia to play most days. Until he turns into a pumpkin, I'd rather see him than Almonte and Heredia. Hell..spell Swanson...play 3rd..be what Camargo ain't....lol

    I just donít see how AA is being realistic here. This team couldnít even get above .500 with Acuna and Anderson. Be realistic instead of trying to please the casuals. At the very least, he can still sell expiring parts in 2 weeks.
