    However, Ozuna’s contract pushes the Braves up to a franchise-record $158MM projected payroll, and perhaps even more surprisingly, they’re at $186MM worth of luxury obligations, per Roster Resource’s Jason Martinez.
    Estimated player benefits (15 mil) seems to be a standardized number they use for all teams based on what i'm seeing. So, I'm not sure how much that applies to us. Had no idea that stuff like health insurance and travel counted toward luxury tax.

    Ryan McMahon can be put on the Brian Anderson, Nick Senzel list, I guess.

    Tommy Lastella might work.

    Seager.

    Not a lot of obvious choices.

    I seem to be the only one who could imagine a deal for Suarez taking place. That's OK. I'm not too mature to gloat if it happens. A countryman of Acuna; I could imagine a three amigos situation if ...

    Thanks. I couldn't find a definitive answer.

    This was the Ozzie Albies for Jake Odorizzi of the 2019 offseason.

    Edit: A player can't be offered a QO back to back seasons.
    A player can only be offered the QO once in their careers.

    There's absolutely no reason to "pile on" and try to make another big splash when it's 20 degrees outside. The Ozuna addition all but guarantees the team as currently constructed will still be in contention in July barring major injuries. Be patient and see what Pache, Waters, and Riley do during the first couple months - you may be in a position to cash Ender and Camargo in come July, and if the right team(s) fall out of it by that point you just might be able to trade for the young, controllable "Ace" (Clevinger or Bieber) everybody's dying to get.

    The Phillies "won" last winter - how'd that work out?
    Did you even read? He said without Waters/Pache/Anderson

    You've "solved Freddie's protection" without blocking Pache or Waters or giving up a single arm, and there's absolutely no reason you can't leave Riley in Gwinnett for the entire season now.

    If he answers the phone before the deadline at this point, he's nuts.
    You're a new level of idiot... adding Bryant or Arenado would turn this team from very good into elite.

    Might your point have been made just as effectively if it started with “adding” and left out the personal attack?

    Kinda pathetic to see yourself as a message board knight in shining armor. How impotent does someone have to be in real life to resort to playing hero on a message board?

    Arguably the best thing about this whole offseason (other than emerging from it with Pache, Waters, Riley, and all the arms still intact) is that it allows you to do just that - pitch them in the 5th-7th.
