For a Kobly Allard level prospect
just remembered andrelton is a chud dickhead
This is so fucking dangerous.
Whelp, Simba is dead to me
Let’s hear what Newk has to say
God damn it Andy
Claimed Kyle Garlick and Victor Arano off waivers from Philly.
Love the Arano claim. If he comes back healthy, he could be an incredibly solid piece in the pen.
Goddamn, Simba's Twitter is a nightmare. Makes me sad.
It's true that the Braves dabbled in the conversations for Springer -- but not as toe-to-toe bidding competition for the Blue Jays and the Mets, but rather as a potential safety net for the outfielder in case the free-agent conditions were so poor that the options might've compelled Springer into taking a shorter-term deal than he sought. The market is bound to be more robust after the next collective bargaining agreement is signed -- perhaps next December -- with agents and executives expecting teams to build on the cost certainty that'll follow and spend more aggressively. If Springer and his representatives had preferred to take a smaller offer, or wait for that, he could've signed a one-year deal somewhere -- just as Josh Donaldson and Marcell Ozuna did with the Braves in 2019 and 2020, respectively. But Springer, who turned 31 in September, instead took the best long-term offer he had this winter.
This one year deal shit is great. I love wondering every offseason if we’re going to field a competitive lineup.
At some point maybe this piece of shit organization will realize it's OK to sign someone to a long term deal while we have a fucking massive amount of young talented controllable cheap players.
BJ Upton has scarred us for life but John Malone would rather sign a bunch of All-Stars to one year deals than go to therapy
We are 40 fucking million under our payroll the last two years and tried to give the #1 bat on the market a 1 year deal for probably 50 bucks.
Nice work AA.
AA has to be loved by the fucking shareholders like Clown Baby
Braves are just competitive enough to keep 80% of the fans happy, fill the stadium, keep the real estate prices high. Yet they are cheap enough to keep the dividend ratio sky high
I feel like Tobias favorite Commish Manfred has really fucked teams like thr Braves. The unknown of the DH is really fucking us.
lots of chatter itt when AA doesn’t make a move for springer but silence when he pulls this off hmmm
There’s going to come a day when we’re down a run and Kakes, Panda and Ender are due up in the bottom of the ninth
That day will be Opening Day.
We need that vet presence
Gonna be a rough couple first games as Snit burns through the bench getting used to no DH... double snits too early and over thinking L/R match ups
You forgot to add who hits the game tying homer.
Kakes and Ender K but Panda walks. Ronnie hits the game winning homer
Well we know ender is hitting a blistering ground out
Victor Arano is a nice pickup. Hope he gets healthy.
Who wants to block some 48' sliders
Yeah looking forward to his fat ass waddling around the field
Stone Cold Steve Austin
We have our kids catch pros sometimes. Luke would probably kill one of them. He's probably 95 right now with a slider that never approaches 60 feet.
I wouldn't catch Luke if he paid me for it.
On top of hitting 96-97 and throwing those spike sliders he has no idea where the fuck any of it is going
Not a chance
I’m actually paying Luke to be his catcher.
So Panda is probably the last big move before the season. I guess we put him at 3rd and Big Country in LF. Could be adequate -- he's had some really great playoff moments in his career.
This is how you spin zone folks
being severly injured trying to catch the duke would be the greatest honor of my life
This is a troll post.
Random Twitter accounts keep posting this. Nothing from anyone reliable.
Doubt it. Sandoval was our final big move
he is the guy who "broke" the macahado to the yankees news multiple times. he doesnt know shit
having said that, i trust him fully here
That guy has an Acuña level contract. Owed like 3/33. We'd have to push all in. I'm good with it though. Would still need a reliever.
trade wright while he still has an ounce of value please
That ship sailed with his performance in the NLCS
I disagree. He made two playoff starts. One was terrible but one was ridiculously good.
De Goat, Bauer, Carrasco, Stro, Thor, Matz
Lindor, Polar Bear, McNeil
Sorry, we're going to hold him b/c he's cheap then he'll go the way of Folty and we'll just release him
And they'll still not make the playoffs
Agreed. They can have Polar Bear. I like our chances with Panda Bear.
So glad we have a huge bitch for a GM.
