    If you could only make one move between now and ST, which would it be? I’m not including Harper or Machado.

    1- Trade Riley, Flowers and Wright for JT
    2- Sign Kimbrel
    3- Sign Keuchel

    Probably JT, just because I don't want to spend significant resources on pitchers who are 30+.

    BTW, I would go with Kimbrel if we could sign him for 3 years or less.

    Sad to hear. Great player in his prime years with the Reds and Orioles. Awesome competitor.

    Why? Minter was just as good as him last year and we get a healthy O'Day... waste of money

    Then, we would have both. Wouldn’t that be great?

    Kiley last two chats sounds like he expects the braves to do nothing until the deadline and he supports it.

    We won’t have a reason to add at the deadline if that’s the case imo.

    I don't know what the threshold for "significant" is, but I'm pretty confident that we'll try to add at least ~2 wins through one avenue or another.

    We should have never gotten rid of Fredi. Now he's going back to school and will be educated in advanced mathematics. He will be full on in with analytics. Remember the offseason after he got fired he was interviewing for managerial spots and telling journalists he took a crash course on analytics and that he'd be ready to utilize it. I hope after Snitkers retires AA gives strong consideration to Fredi to come back.
    Forever Fredi

    My thought as well. Others should read it and let me know if I’m reading it wrong.

    Almost sounded like last years mentality. I got it last year. We were coming off a bad year, new front office had to learn players and we took on bad money so we didn’t have to pay Kemp this year.

    This year is supposed to be very different. Are we going to hang around 500 and hope some team sucks and panic dumps two impact guys?

    So Camargo is as good as Harper then right? 3.3 WAR vs. 3.5....

    Kimbrel had a slightly down season, fueled by some bad luck (after some good luck and one of the best seasons for a reliever ever in 2017). Still throwing in the upper 90's. Minter is not on Kimbrels level.

    Production was similar and when you factor in cost.....

    Brian Kenny's Ahead of the Curve suggested the opener and that you should never sign a big free agent. Never. Is this book required reading now?

    I gave you two other choices. Did you even choose? BTW, I just signed up to run a half marathon in Fargo in May 18.
