    I really don't see a fit for a starting pitcher on the trade market. Wheeler, Bumgarner, Stroman aren't impressive, and Thor is too expensive. I'm hoping the Braves pick up a mediocre reliever cheap and call it a day.

    Ace after four spring training starts, bust after up and down half season. I feel another shift coming.

    He should not be traded for a #3/4 starter that doesnít strike anyone out.

    I have been ****ting on Wright since before we drafted him but it wasnt a wrong pick. I was fine with it for the reason that we could trade him before he busts. Really ****ing tired of these low floor college pitchers who dont even reach their supposed floor. We need to cash in on the imaginary surplus value before its too late imo.

    idk Wright being at 3/4 at this point would be a win.

    We got 2 or 3 more rounds of "Ace or Bust" before it's all done.

    For me, Wright's upside has always been a 2/3. I don't think a 3/4 is a huge win or a huge loss.

    He's not. But it's gotta be disappointing when you have a pick that high and are told the kid has Ace potential, and should be ready to reach the majors fast.

    he's definitely been disappointing. but he's not yet a bust and his career isn't over. plenty of opportunity to turn it around.

    him becoming a "2" would be an enormous W. chances of that have gone down significantly.

    Yeah, I'm not sure where this "Ace potential" narrative came from. It certainly wasn't started on draft day by anyone with half a clue.
    I think he (Teheran) finishes with a FIP ~3.3. -CrazyTrain 3/25/2019

    Gausman had a bad walk ratio for us -CrazyTrain 11/20/2018
    BB/9 with Braves: 2.72

    Fried, Newk and a couple other guys for Bumgarner and give him a pay day for 6ish years -CrazyTrain 10/15/18

    I know he hasnít been that great this year but of all the pitchers you listed Iíd go after Wheeler.
    To me besides Thor, he has the best stuff of that group and if heís on is more likely to get more swings and misses.
    Also doesnít hurt that Iíve watched him since he was in middle school and might get some tickets out of it haha

    Yeah, I'm not sure if you are agreeing with me or disagreeing with me.

    After spring training, it got a little erect around here.
