    In other news, Keuchel/Kimbrel/Machado/Harper among others like Marwin, Moose, etc still arent signed and camps are opening.

    Baseball has to fix this.

    Despite rumored offers/wishes of teams, word is Bryce Harper is not signing — or even considering — short-term deals.

    I wonder how long Donaldson would have lasted if we wouldn’t have signed him so fast.

    At what we signed him? He'd be off the board by now imo

    I expected more from this off season than signing JD and a couple retreads to 1 year deals.

    Oh well.

    I thought we'd at least make one big trade with our prospects but pretty dissapointing given the money they had and prospect capital to really improve the team.

    So did I, but ultimately I'm fine with it, especially if we can add another ~2 wins by shoring up the edges of the roster. Its a conservative approach and maybe that isn't the best thing when the rest of the division has been ridiculously aggressive, but it does keep the long term view as the main focus, which I like.

    Ok. Now that camps are open we need some best shape of their life picks. Gohard is too easy so drop another name.

    Agreed. The Donaldson deal was a low risk deal at the time, however, with it being our only main move, it becomes a higher risk IMO.

    If he gets hurt again, we are in big time trouble. Add to the fact that we have injury prone and declining McCann behind the plate, that is more trouble for us...If he gets hurt, we don't have anyone to replace him outside of Flowers

    I should have said opening. But I am going to go with Newk best shape and we will get reports of Ozzie adding 10 plus pounds of muscle. Book it.

    Casey Stern is leading his questions to Glavine that it is not AA's fault of the Braves failure this offseason, it is the owners...he has been on that bandwagen for a while now

    Just what he needs...more reason to hit fly balls.

    I predict Camargo adds 2 gold chains to upgrade that swagger tool.

    Looks to me like people just figured him out in the second half. The margin for error with guys that have Newk's style stuff is extremely low. If you're main pitch philosophy is FB/CH, you gotta be able to locate. At almost 26, I don't see that happening for him.
    K rate increased, BB rate (IIRC) dropped a hair, FIP was slightly lower.

    Newk was fairly similar in the second half. As you pointed out, his luck normalized so it looked like he was worse.

    I'm not saying Newk's going to be amazing this year. I just don't see him as a big candidate to regress. I expect something similar. Maybe a small improvement if he continues to refine his game.
