    Olney- Dodgers appear to be in the middle of the outfield market, both in trades (Kemp? Puig? Pederson) and free agents (Harper? Pollock?)

    I’d keep Albies, but I’d take Gordon to play center. He makes an average of $14m for the next 3 seasons and is usually really good with average, obp, and steals. Had a down year last year but I’d take a shot.

    Then offer something like Wright,Inciarte, Muller for Kluber

    Gordon CF
    Acuña LF
    Freeman 1B
    Donaldson 3B
    Haniger RF
    Albies 2B
    McCann/Flowers C
    Swanson SS

    Kluber
    Folty
    Newk
    Gausman
    Gohara/Soroka/Touki/Wilson

    Trade Teheran to whoever picks up most of his contract to offset the Gordon addition

    It would cost alot more than Ender, Muller and Wright for Kluber.

    I saw where they were intending on dumping Puig no matter what

    Literally the worst trade proposal on this board since Albies for Gordon straight up. Never thought I’d see the likes of that again.

    100%. I get AA is trying to left his asking price come down some but he fits this team as good as you can. He needs to be our guy.

    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. (What's the best we could hope for in 2018?)

    I know you were making a joke. By honestly I could see him and Acuña and Ozzie all feeding off each other’s energy. And they are far more important to the season than b-mac

    I haven't seen Chris Taylor mentioned as a possible trade option as much as Puig, Pederson, or Verdugo. What is it about Taylor that makes less sense than those guys? He can play corner outfield along with basically any other position, he's just hitting arbitration, and he has a little pop in his bat as well. He'd likely be more expensive than the other three guys, but his versatility would fit with AA's idea of moving guys around/giving guys days off next season.

    Maybe we'd prefer to pay less in prospects to take on a bit more money with less control. Or maybe the Dodgers would prefer to move one of the other three over Taylor, since they obviously like versatility more than any other team.

    Yes and what is your offer for Mitch Haniger? Maybe Seattle likes your offer...

    I see him and Kike Hernandez as more very good utility players. But there is nothing wrong with giving a player like that a ton of playing time. Both would be good trade candidates given the surplus of good outfield players the Dodgers are carrying.

    Exactly that.

    The other three can only play on one of the corners. He's their Camargo.
    Waters is intersting too. Would prefer a guy that projects to more power though. (2017 Draft Thread)

    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. (What's the best we could hope for in 2018?)

    Only half-joking. The Braves simply don't have the pieces in place to handle Puig. Obviously he and Mac wouldn't be buddies. I don't personally think he and Freddie would get along particularly well. There's no doubt in my mind that Snitker and his Bobby-Lite style would have trouble dealing with him. The energy's great, but Ozzie and Acuna still have some maturing to do themselves - the Puig sideshow would simply complicate things for them more often than it would provide some new-age version of the Three Musketeers IMO.

    As short as windows are going to be in this day and age, does anybody really want to gamble one of the last remaining prime seasons for Freddie and Donaldson on Puig's questionable character - especially when you only get the one year of him??? There's no doubt in my mind that you'd already be fighting an uphill battle the day you trade for him and he realizes he's not part of the Hollywood scene any more.

    Since 2015, Puig has only had one year better than a 1.8 WAR... why is he some big target considering his attitude as well? If dude didn't produce because he was just having a temper tantrum, I don't want to be anywhere near him.

    It's refreshing to know we have someone on the board who is so close to these players and knows their personalities so well!

    I'd rather trade for Pederson, Verdugo, Taylor or Hernandez. But the Dodgers might be anxious to dump Puig. At some point the price might make it worth doing.

    Don't you think AA is waiting to make a trade first, since that will clear bodies off the 40 man? If a free agent is signed before the trade, someone gets dropped. Right?
