They both have said that if you've got a deal with him you'd better get it done NOW because he'll move on and take what he perceives as a better one in a heartbeat. They've mentioned he's talking to EVERYBODY all the time about EVERYONE, so it's easy for him to find a better deal (in his eyes) if you hesitate.

    Waters is intersting too. Would prefer a guy that projects to more power though.

    If they don't make additions they can expect the same 3-5 win improvement they saw last year. That makes the Braves a 75-78 win team.

    The FO that needlessly promoted him early knew what they were doing and are paid to do this. We aren't, so we can't know more than them. Correction....they used to be paid to do this...

    I see what you did.

    Guess JS learned that about Hart when the A-rod deal happened. Went to sleep a Brave woke up a Ranger.
