Anything short of 50-50 is frankly a letdown
the Harangataun was DEALING that year. pretty sure we DFAd him 2 weeks into the next season. He fell off quick.
Interested to see what Snit does with the lineup tonight with Matz pitching and if he goes heavy on the righties and puts Chuck and Duvall in the corners with Ronnie in center and Johan at short or if he sticks with Ender.
that's a huge fucking gif but i like it regardless
Probably does something very stupid and just happens to work out OK
BMac doesn't get much attention but he's fallen to complete shit
That last Sheets outing was great. Announces he's retiring before the start, comes out throwing 95 and shoves it up the Pirates' ass for an inning and calls it a career.
Just another great example of looking at far too small a sample size and drawing bad conclusions
Before his last 3 games, he had a 126 wRC+ in August and a 150 wRC+ since July 17th
So he's had 3 bad games at the plate
I mean that is quite the difference in the top and bottom. The SS situation is definitely the scary one for me. That really hurts us with all the ground ball/pitch to contact pitchers we have. Particularly some of the critical bullpen guys and Kuechel/Soroka. They're good but not having Dansby out there lessens their effectiveness. Idk what you can do however. We may need to get creative because we know what we have in Charlie and Camargo and it ain't good.
Found the Sheets inning on Youtube.
remember when they said dansby would have played the very next day after getting hurt if it was the playoffs
now there is no timeline. just don't expect him back this season and hope to be pleasantly surprised because the situation stinks
blowing 95 past cutch on the last pitch of your career is badass
Put your wristband on your little bitch is showing
His avg fastball velo chart from that season is great. Dude knew he was done and emptied the tank.
greene's stuff is just so average
another damning indictment on the AL that he was so good
He should have laughed at us last season TBH
Is it too early to look into signing Ronnie to a second extension
ozzies's value this year alone is like $27m. so he's already at 60%
Update on Trey Harris:
32nd rounder Trey Harris. Not much was expected of Harris out of Missouri, more of an organizational type who has a good locker room presence, strong baseball smarts, and personable nature that could be a valuable piece to minor league teams. Spoiler alert, children, Trey Harris did not like that idea very much. He’s still a cool cat, only now he’s a hot hitter who has made some key changes that have sparked a 180 to his career. Harris has been a leader on and off the field, and the results speak for themselves at every level he’s played.
Harris started off his professional career by dominating rookie ball exactly how he should given his age, but it was his chances in Rome that drew real attention. He struck out less than 14% of the time in 2018, then in 2019 repeated those numbers almost exactly while showing a .228 ISO and hitting .366/.437/.594. Harris received a promotion to High-A, and he was only slowed marginally hitting .303/.388/.443 in 34 games. After hitting .429 over his past six games he was promoted to Mississippi, and finally it seemed he had reached a challenge. Through his first nine games he only had a .562 OPS and didn’t draw any walks. Death, taxes, Trey Harris hot streaks and he has hit .348 over his past twelve games with six extra base hits and a 16.3% strikeout rate. Harris is top five in minor league baseball in batting average, ranks 16th in hits, and ranks a cool third in all of minor league baseball with a 171 wRC+. Harris has been easily the biggest eye opener of the season because the man can just hit baseballs, and with twelve home runs in primarily hitter friendly leagues it’s fair to expect Harris to be a 25 home run bat with the Triple-A ball. If Harris continues to hit he will find himself in the major leagues, and even though it’s still more likely that he’s a bench bat there is ever growing reason to believe the Braves stole a starting-caliber outfield in the 33rd round. He’s stated that changes to his commitment to every pitch of every at bat has paid massive dividends and he’s showing a consistent hit tool that outperformed, statistically at least, every single other position player from the 2018 draft. Only one position player signed from the 32nd round, Kevin Pillar, has ever gone on to produce 10+ career WAR. If the Braves get lucky, they may have found the second.
Matz is a LHP so maybe we get the better versions of Duvall/Flowers tonight.
You guys took Nick Markakis and his league average runs created for granted
Max is a 5 tool player
If anybody can give a listen. Curious to hear what he says about the injury front in particular.
Jim Bowden did his early 2020 free agent rankings. Grain of salt, etc.
7. Josh Donaldson, 3B
Slash line: .261/.377/.513 HR: 27 RBI: 69 OPS+: 126 WAR: 3.7
Alex Anthopoulos’s best move as Braves GM so far has been the signing of free-agent third baseman Josh Donaldson to a one-year, $23 million pact. Donaldson has more than lived up to the contract, providing the middle-of-the-lineup right-handed power the team so desperately needed and above-average defense. The Braves were unable to get a club option thrown in at the back of his contract, meaning he’ll be back on the market looking for a multi-year deal — and with top prospect Austin Riley close to being major-league ready, it’s unlikely that the Braves will try to bring Donaldson back. His mental toughness, and the edge he brings to clubhouses, is special, as is his ability to perform with the game on the line. He’ll probably have to wait until after Anthony Rendon signs but should do quite well on a shorter-term, high average annual salary, but he’s definitely getting a multi-year contract this time.
Teams expected to bid: Braves, Nationals, Rangers and Mets.
Early best fit: Nationals. If they aren’t able to bring Rendon back, then I can see the team pivoting quickly to Donaldson.
What if we threw Donaldson's 23 at Rendon long term? Can't imagine we'd have to go too much higher.
I love shitting too, Max
I'd guess Rendon gets into the $30M per range. Arenado got 8/$260M with an opt-out. Altuve got 5/$151M.
I would say AA's best moves have been the long term Ozzie and Acuna deals. Those are franchise defining contracts.
Boras would probably block a GMs number for starting at that figure with Rendon.
Not sure about Altuve but NA signed at 27. Think Rendon will be 30. I'd think he gets similar yearly money but fewer years.
Donaldson plus the savings from non tendering WOAT closer Shane Greene covers it.
hey guys thanks for allard 8)
wow impressive performance against the blue jays. what a gotcha moment
no mcneil rest of the series
we really love chris martin btw
literally this start against the blue jays will be more valuable than martin will be for the braves 8)
good lord you’re insanely stupid when it comes to baseball
If you're the Braves, do you exercise Teheran's $12 MM option after this season? It seems like he pitches with lots of traffic, but he does go every 5th day.
They could, but you could also decline, wait the whole offseason and maybe scoop him up for like 1 year $6M, so I don't think they will
Could you slap some tool grades on Trey Harris? I get that he's not a future star, but it's hard to get any sense of his athleticism, defensive value, hit/power projections etc.
squatty framed LF without a plus tool but he's hitting and has potential 20 HR power
That's basically the same as Dustin Peterson who was hitting until he wasn't, to give you an idea of the margin for error
ace should get something like 2 years/$18m if we’re declining his option
I find it really hard to believe that 1/6 is JTs market value.
I bet Kolby definitely keeps striking out guys twice as frequently as he has in the upper level of the minors! I think that's who he really is!
let me post 8) and the same two emoticons over and over to convince myself i am not a moron!
His peripherals are pretty terrible and he doesn't have elite stuff anymore.
People are going to shy away from him and bet he doesn't end up in the top 10 in BABIP and top 20 in strand rate on an annual basis.
That's probably not his market value, but it's also not a bad gamble on JT either. He's not what teams that are heavy into pitching analytics are looking for, and some of his peripherals aren't super pretty. Add in the declining velo, and I think there's real room to get value. Not without risk, but still.
Get out of my head, Jrmy.
