    Didn’t liberty let us go out and get Santana one year when we needed him? 2014 or 15?

    I know right? We have plenty of pitching prospects - just let Anderson go and get this done

    yup...and at the end of that season we failed to make the playoffs and the GM was out of his job

    Not gonna happen, but I wouldn't ask them to bust it either.
    Just thinking it would be nice if they could see that it would be good for their business and our baseball.
    Gotta spend money to make money.
    They would basically be insuring a full Sun Trust Park and Battery for the next several years.
    Not to mention the "marketability" of the situation.

They are more likely to move Renfroe.
    UZR had rated them below average. But maybe I was wrong about the position.

    If we ended up getting a JTR deal done while only giving up 1 top pitching prospect and none of our big 4 positional prospects, everything about this offseason would be made okay and I would bow to AA's feet in deference faster than SCOTUS did in Chevron v. NRDC

    I don’t know but have heard that Anderson is the only pitcher we have who is considered to have ace potential. It worries me to think we do another “Wainwright.”

    If AA has even offered Pache in a deal for just two years of JTR then he should be fired immediately!

    Sorry, but that's ridiculous.

    A guy who MIGHT hit (and who might end up being Billy Hamilton with less speed) is not untouchable, regardless of defensive ability.

    I'd prefer to give up Pache over Riley, all else being equal.

    You’re nuts. Pache is a much better prospect that Riley.

    Pache is FAR more "available" in trades than Riley. Ender is signed through 2022 when Waters would be ready, and some services already are ranking Waters higher than Pache. There's not another 3B in the system behind Riley until you get to C. J. Alexander, and he's likely not going to be good enough defensively to stick over there.

    If you trade Riley, you may well have no choice other than to spend big money on Donaldson next winter - Arenado may be close to an extension to stay in Colorado, and the Gnats will probably extend Rendon (possibly even if they bring Harper back, but almost definitely if they don't). That leaves you with Camargo (who AA apparently doesn't believe in as an everyday 3B) and Donaldson next winter if Riley's in Miami (or elsewhere).
    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?)

    apparently 90% of the baseball prospect writers are crazy, then.

    Wonder if AA's part of the interest that's picked up in Adam Jones. If you could add him inexpensively on a one year or 1+1 deal he and Markakis night not be an awful platoon on the cheap, and he'd be a bit of an upgrade from Duval.

    With ST just a few weeks off these guys are gonna be more willing to trade guys and FA to take shorter deals to get settled with their new team. Hopefully the JTR stuff is over by the end of next week bc the Marlins don’t wanna take a chance on him getting hurt during ST.
