    Dudes expectations are going to be higher than dansbys (who is looking much better at the plate with his approach) at this rate.

    2) Extra year of team control: Does ATL wait 3 weeks (give or take) next year before promoting Acuna? That would ensure ATL got a 4th arbitration year out of him as a Super 2. This is the Kris Bryant/Bryce Harper treatment.

    3) Does ATL wait another 6 weeks (give or take) and call Acuna up in June, basically giving up half of a season of Acuna to keep control for the same amount of years as #2 above AND control his salary by only giving him 3 ARB years instead of 4.

    4) Acuna stays down this year and starts next year in ATL. This leaves the 40 man roster spot open in the offseason, but blows Acuna's 4th year of ARB.

    My best guess is #3 is out. ATL would not have pushed him all the way to AAA and then leave him there for half of next year.

    That leaves scenario #1, #2, or #4. At this point none of these would surprise me. I hope it is #2. That gives ATL a chance to move Marky or Kemp in the offseason to make room for Acuna. It also gives ATL an extra year of control because Acuna won't get the 173 days in MLB that he needs. It also allows ATL to leave a 40 man roster spot for someone else. That just seems like the best scenario for balancing team control and Acuna being ready.

    Waiting 3 weeks to start next year is more than reasonable.

    The service clock doesn't matter to the Braves front office, we have plenty of revenue from the new stadium / battery to re-sign whoever (and sign key FA) when the time comes. Coppy and company also insist the player will let you know when he is ready, I think we need to call Acuņa up in September to get his feet wet in the big leagues.

    That sounds good, but every company says that. And the Braves are a company. While I do think the Braves have the money to sign a big ticket FA, I also think the 40 man roster spot may be more important.

    I agree with this. Clubs always say this stuff, but there are other factors than just Acuna being ready. Do you lose a guy off the 40 man roster so Acuna gets 3 weeks in the majors? Do you lose a year of team control over 3 weeks at the beginning of next year?

    Like I said, I can see any of these scenarios happening, except waiting until next June. I would prefer waiting 3 weeks into next year just so ATL controls Acuna for an extra year.

    Clubs definitely don't mean what they say. The Cubs, for example, claimed they didn't keep Kris Bryant in AAA for a few weeks so they could gain an extra year. Everybody with a fully functioning brain new that was a bunch of bs.

    Save the 40 man spot but if he shows he's ready, you start him up after spring training. If he's ready play him.

    So you would lose a year of team control for 3 extra weeks in the majors? I will take the full year of guaranteed control.

    I think your sentiment is very likely what ATLA does. I am just not sure it is the most prudent.

    Either bring up Acuna in September or wait until we can get the extra year of control. I don't see any reason to go halfway.

    I don't see him coming up unless Kemp or Markakis gets moved, maybe when the minor league season is over.

    I truly don't understand the short term reasoning that some fans have for wanting him up tomorrow. Yes it would add a brief bit of excitement, however long term it wouldn't be the smartest move.

    I would take the extra year but if he is as good as advertised we will extend him before that time comes. We called up Freddie in late September, then extended him early. Called up Heyward out of ST then traded him rather than extending. Called up Kimbrell late in the season, then extended early, then traded.
