    This is arguably the best offensive core we've ever had, probably best defensive too.

    DJustice, Klesko, Javy, Chipper coming up in a few years... this core can match up with them if not better.

    Pitching wise you have to take Maddux, Glavine, Smoltz, Avery, etc. More reputation and bigger results than Minor, Medlen, Beachy, Teheran, and hopefully Wood.

If we had waited a year or two those free agency years would of been close to 20 million imo.
    You mean Andrelton is better than Andrus, correct?

    How many teams can say they had the best defensive player at a position all time, and we were given the honor of watching two: Andruw grow up, and Andrelton develop as well.

    6 other teams? Since the Braves got to watch the best defensive pitcher of all time too.

    C: Bench
    1B: Hernandez
    2B: ??
    SS: Simmons
    3B: Robinson (maybe machado one day)
    LF: ?
    RF: Clemente
    CF: Druw

    Who are the question marks?

    This is the best (from club perspective) and most important of the recent signings. Bravo Frank Wren!

    Quick glances I would have Bonds in left. Not sure about 2nd. Not many prolific defenders there. And I would personally have Ichiro in right.

    Garret Anderson in left.

    It is curious to see him getting 3 million next year. I guess the Braves were thinking he would of ended up as a super 2 player.

    Further proof that the Braves have money to spend.

    I feel like I'm beginning to sound like a broken record.

    Stocks are going up, baby.

    First time in over 10 years I felt like the team had money AND was willing to spend it.

    Great deal.

    Gives Wren some leverage with JUp or JHey next winter.

    He signed for less than i thought but this is a steal.

    Minor would the next i'd try to do but i'm not sure how much that would cost.

    I hope that both Minor/Medlen want to stay. While we are giving out money we might as well sign those guys.

    None of this is possible without the new ballpark.

    Sherman, Rosnethal and others said this yesterday on MLB Network.

    I'm not sure i'd sign Medlen unless he'd take a huge discount.

    Minor for sure but with the insane SP deals out there, he may cost a lot.

    And most of the same writers have said it will be extremely hard to keep Heyward and even more so with todays signing. I would guess we would have to include Upton as being difficult as well.
