    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?)

    The Braves getting to use a 9 player lineup should worry other NL teams.

    I don稚 see Haniger now that Nick is signed. He will not be a bench player (at least this year). I think the ship has sailed on any outfield upgrades unfortunately...especially with Pache showing some offensive promise.

    When interviewed the other day, Nick was talking about them wanting him to take a few days off (and not play every day). You could tell he plans to play every day they don稚 force him to rest.

    Nick should be accepting the fact that he's now a 130 to 140 game starter and not the iron man he sees himself as. My guess is Duvall or someone else they bring in will get those other starts.

    My hope for Anthopoulos is that he wouldn't do anything stupid and the only signing I really don't like is bringing back McCann as soon as he did instead of waiting for the Grandal market to shake out. Signing McCann wasn't a bad move (probably decent value), but it's not a clear upgrade from Suzuki.

    No matter what we think about it, the players and team seem to feel differently about him. I would be very surprised to any move that decreases Nick痴 playing time....at least before the trade deadline.

    i hope nick plays less than 130-140 games. a good bit less.

    If you look at the teams that are very likely to be sellers (such as the Orioles, Marlins, Royals, etc) there is little to pick from. But there is the next tier of teams (Reds, Diamondbacks, Pirates, Mariners, etc) that I call marginal contenders. Over half of those teams are going to be sellers. We will have to wait to see which ones are in fact sellers. But we should be able to upgrade corner outfield, catcher, starting and relief pitching and really just about any position if that is what we need. And we should be able to do multiple upgrades.

    I don't mind him starting most of the games in RF, but his second half slide showed him wearing down. I was hoping they would sign a legitimate RHH OF to spell Markakis because I think Duvall falls into the category of players that needs to play every day to be productive and that won't be happening in Atlanta in 2019. Marwin Gonzalez doesn't eat up LHP, but I thought someone in that vein would have been a decent addition because he could log significant time in the OF.

    If Haniger is available at the deadline and AA let’s having Markakis pass on him then he should be fired. Markakis shouldn’t in any way keep the team from upgrading the OF if we are still in it.

    I'm disappointed that Camargo and Riley have not played outfield in spring training so far. I think they could fill the bill if Duvall doesn't work out.

    Edit: Riley in LF and Camargo in RF today. Yeah!

    you're probably going to pay more at the deadline for haniger than you would now. so that seems bad either way.

    I would say it would have more to do with the progression of Pache and Waters, more than Nick. No matter how they view him...he is not the future. I would be surprised if he is even back next year, but if he is...it will be a bench bat.

    That is the obvious downside from going into the season with unspent payroll. The acquisitions going forward will include a contender's premium. Unless we make a trade with another contender.

    despite what they said, i think the mariners would have moved Haniger this offseason if they got what they were asking. but they didn't feel they needed to, so had some leverage. when they're out of it by the deadline, i suspect they'll try and push to move him. but there will be a lot of teams in for his services. if AA balked at the price this offseason, he will really balk at it mid-season.

    but i think all of this is moot unless nick ****s the bed. he may be platooned, but there's almost no way he's benched otherwise. i don't expect him to **** the bed, so i don't expect AA to seek a full-time OF.

    Time to scrap the 3B - OF transition experiment...caused them to lose a spring training game.
    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?)
