11/26/2022
The Atlanta Braves have significant money and want to be a top 5 payroll, which means there is no reason they shouldn't spend big to fill the holes at shortstop and left field. Perhaps part of the money situation is figuring out what to do with Marcell Ozuna. Is attaching Ian Anderson or some other young pitching prospects the best move to save money? Mike Soroka is hoping to make his triumphant return in 2023. Can he get back to his previous level? Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!...

The Atlanta Braves Must Improve this Stat in 2023

11/24/2022
There isn't a lot to nitpick for an offense that was one of the best in baseball, but if the Atlanta Braves are going to be a more consistent offense in 2023 they have to make more contact. With the shift going away, there will be a much higher benefit from putting the ball in play. The Braves have to do a better jump of not chasing pitches out of the zone, and when they do, making contact with those pitchers to cut down on the strikeouts. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

Playing Atlanta Braves GM -- The Ideal Offseason

11/9/2022
Jake Mastroianni puts on his GM hat and discusses the free-agent moves he would make for the Atlanta Braves within the confines of what the budget will likely be. If the Braves decide to stay under the luxury tax, that might have enough for one big move like signing Dansby Swanson and then another small move -- perhaps a platoon parter for Eddie Rosario like Adam Duvall. But if the Braves decide to go big with the payroll, then there is obviously room to make a couple of big moves this...
