    Updated for Heyward's signing. The net impact is a decrease of $700K, since his 2014 salary of $4.5 million is less than the $5.2 million the Braves would've paid him even had they won his...

    So the main reason I made this list is that the more I research the roster heading into spring training, the less faith I have in our bench. Ryan Doumit is solid, but other than that, I'm very...

    I have to admit I'm not prepared with a full analysis yet of the 2014 Braves compared to the '14 Nationals, but I guess I'm not sure (a) why the Braves' starting pitching would need to "dominate" in...

    It's the quiet time of the offseason, with rosters getting pretty much set with less than a month left heading into camp. We know the Braves won't be involved with any of the big-name free agents,...

    I have to say it really bothers me that the team wasn't able to come to terms with three of its most important players before yesterday's deadline, especially given that there's no indication of...

    Updated with arbitration signings. The net effect of those signings on the projection are as follows:

    Chris Johnson: $4.75M actual, $4.2M projected, $550K net increase
    Kris Medlen: $5.8M actual,...

    No one is giving you any four-letter words by asking you to explain how you arrived at this conclusion. Last year's team was a 98-win team by Pythagorean record, but even if I concede that point and...

    Fair enough, and speaking retroactively, yes, he was dangerously close to replacement-level last year, and I don't necessarily object to you equating "awful" and "replacement-level." But even his...

    I just don't think it's possible to get full value out of him anymore. Again, it's pretty much impossible to predict the market conditions a year from now, but even if he has a .230/.340/.450 season,...

    Well, then I guess it depends what you mean by "his arm will fall off." Harvey's arm didn't fall off. He's having Tommy John surgery, and in all likelihood he'll be good as new when he returns in 14...

    I guess I don't think of trading Uggla as even a remote possibility at this point. If he doesn't bounce back, his salary will still make him immovable without the Braves eating a ton of salary. And...

    It depends what you mean by "best," I suppose. From a performance standpoint, you're right. But from a talent perspective, I don't think that Medlen or Minor can match Samardzija's upside, and...

    Jordany Valdespin signed with the Marlins, so I'm onto agreeing with you about Bonifacio. I think Josh Harrison is another interesting name, and the Pirates might part with him reasonably.

    That's an absurdly high rating, in my opinion. Baseball America has been known to get carried away with draft pedigree sometimes, but Gilmartin was always miscast as a first-round pick. My guess is...

    I like this deal a good bit. Doumit is a solid if unspectacular hitter, but it's not like the Braves needed Barry Bonds off the bench. You can probably count on a .750-ish OPS, and that's exactly...

    Not likely. As westside says, a utility infielder and some bullpen pieces are about all that's left to acquire. Might be some big deals coming in extending the players already on the roster, but that...
