    2019 BA Top 100

    Out today. Riley #22, Anderson #24, Soroka #25, Wright #39, Touki #53, Wilson #80, Waters #83, Pache #85.

    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?)

    I haven't had a problem with their rumored asking price of someone's top prospect for Realmuto except for one thing - they HAVE to stop trying to tie the return they "need" for Realmuto to the fact that they blew the return for Yelich. They don't have nearly as much control over J. T., so they need to adjust their asking price accordingly. If they want Riley, fine. Riley and Wilson, OK. If they want Riley and Anderson, I'd make them take Flowers back and probably want Steckenrider included too. If that means I'd have to include a throw-in or two from much lower on our list I'd probably be OK with that.

    We’ll be adding the #9 pick and possibly the 21 pick to the list next year.

    I'd imagine by that time Soroka, Touki, and maybe Wright will have fallen off the list

    And everything at BA is behind pay now, so the link is kinda useless to me. I wonder how I can get the whole list for fantasy purposes?

    Okay everything that I may have ever said about trading Muller, scrap it. We need to keep this kid. Dude hit 98 at Driveline the other day.

    Needs to reign in the offspeed stuff a little, though.

    I love that every time someone has something to say about Muller, they always mention how big he is.

    I have a question. Every time I see a trade possibility here, it has Riley mentioned in it. Do we not think we need Riley? If we don't sign Donaldson long term, and I don't know why we would start with a 1 year deal if we wanted him long term, who will play third next year? If we go back with Camargo, there goes our bench again.

    There will be a lot of quality 3B options available via FA next year. Big 3 are Donaldson, Arenado, and Rendon.

    That’s one of the more unimpressive sequences I’ve ever seen.

    Not one of those off speeds was closer than two feet from the zone. He lived in the upper 93 range for the most part. I wouldn’t get tied up in what he hit once, but what he hits consistently

    Just depends on which side of the Great Riley Debate you come down on.

    The doubters would trade him in just about any deal and be happy spending big $$$ to replace Donaldson next winter in the event he does turn into a one-year stopgap. Many who aren't high on Riley aren't buying that he's improving in some areas where there were questions early on - they don't like him defensively even though every report you read says he's continually getting better. Often they'll complain about his strikeout rates even though they don't consider the same rates as as big a wart on other prospects.

    Some (if not most or all) of the Riley believers would only trade him in a deal for Realmuto because they have hope a healthy Donaldson with a shorter extension saves you bags of cash over chasing Rendon or Arenado (and don't buy the Braves could land one of them next winter anyway) and they want to make a push NOW. Realmuto will be a monster difference-maker in this lineup for two years and if you believe in our young pitching, you probably believe that adding Realmuto to a healthy Donaldson, Freeman, Acuna, and Albies nets Atlanta a Championship before Freddie's contract is up.

    I'm grudgingly in that second group, but Realmuto is pretty much the ONLY player I'd move Riley for at this point. The doubters may be right - and no one argues their points are legitimate concerns - but we've heard the same arguments about prospects that turned into All-Stars before. If the worst-case scenario happens and his defense hasn't improved as much as reports say, he steps in for Markakis next year (with Acuna sliding over) and hits 25-30 HRs for several years while he's cheap.
    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?)

    Clv...who in the h3ll said Riley's defense hasn't improved or is legitimate? From Rome to Gwinnett he worked his azz off and is above average at minimum. I have concerns about his strikeouts...that's it.
