    I don't doubt those are reasonable expectations to hope for at all if he has his first healthy season in 3 years, and hope he exceeds that. That certainly doesn't get him in the MVP discussion, does it?

    The point that southcack continues to run from is that the big 2017 number came in 113 games. As impressive as that is, expecting him to produce at that 2017 rate now that he's 2 years older with his injury history is simply asking to be disappointed.

    Everyone hopes he has a healthy and very productive 2019 season and that he's a big part of the Braves' success - hopefully he shocks the world and plays just like the calendar still says 2015 or 2016. I just find it funny that when someone points out that it's a little ridiculous to suggest that a 33 year old Donaldson coming off of two injury-ruined seasons is the final piece to the puzzle by himself when this team had bigger areas of need - and still does - they get ripped for it.

    Don't forget, I'm one of those not so wrapped up in the numbers and projections - those projections some folks hold so dear have the Braves as a 4th place team as of today, so following the logic that you can't argue with the numbers leads you to believe that those painting a rosy picture of things right now are "ignoring reality", no? If it were me or thethe trying to look on the bright side, many would scream about how we were such stupid pozzies.

    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?)

    Calling JD an MVP candidate if heís healthy is not the same level of pozzy as...

    Fried ermergs as a potential TOR canddiate 11/3/2017

    He (Allard) will be top 20 by the ed of next season 2/5/2018

    sentiment will change quickly this season....Newcomb will be providing his prime performance 2/7/2018

    For the next 5 years I think 15 WAR is a decent baseline to put out there. If he obtains that we should all be happy. I happen to believe that Newk has elite level stuff and it won't be a consistent leveled production. I could see him languishing at around 2 WAR for the next year or two and then make a big jump in 2020 to 5+ 2/8/2018

    Altuve is a reasonable comp for Albies 2/8/2018

    (Because of Pache) We will be shopping ender in the next year 2/11/2018

    (Albies) 6+ WAR player. Absolute superstar. If he stays healthy he is a hall of famer.

    Soroka will be replacing Folty in July 4/23/2018

    One is being optimistic. The other is being consistently delusional. Iíll let you ponder over which is which. Maybe you can get the sales engineer to lend some brain power? Surely a sales engineer teaming up with an appraisor makes an unstoppable brainiac duo, no?

    The fact that you whimper about reading comprehension yet can't see the ten year old in your own posts is comedic.

    Run along now, and go find something someone posted on Shanks' board in 2012 to *itch about. I promise you'll feel better. Might even get a lollipop for your efforts.

    Just curious ... what in the name of all the levels of hell might people's occupations have to do with anything? Seriously. What?

    By the way, I am CEO of a book publisher/movie studio in the final stages of completing what may be the largest seed round raise in history. Therefore, I have the most baseball knowledge of all of you.
