BJ upton signed a 5 year contract, Dan Uggla is under contract for three more years. In the rotation, Medlen, Beachy, Minor are all at least under contract for the next three years and we have the best closer in baseball who is 24 years old. So how the hell do you expect the braves to have a top 5 farm after all our graduations? in fact why the hell do we need to have a top 5 farm when almost everybody is young and under contract?

    When you graduate guys like Heyward, Freeman, Kimbrel, Minor, Beachy, etc.. from your farm it is bound to take a bit of a dip.
    BRING BACK CHICUBS!!!

    We have the talent, but everything need to work out well for that to happen and that almost never happen.

    Who won the division again? If I lost a hockey team and my football team choked I would be confident in my baseball team to. Prospects for the next three years okay!

    Prado will lose value moving to 3B where his defense will not inflate his WAR so much. J Upton will increase his WAR by moving to LF. Couple that with the fact that Upton was injured and wore a wrist brace most of the year but smashed the ball after removing the brace and Upton should have a very solid season, leaving a hitter friendly park and all. And Upton is entering his prime just now, Prado will be leaving his soon.

    ATL is building to win over the next 3-5 years. Adding Upton's for at least 3 and 5 years at controlled salaries helps that cause. ATL also now has money to lock up guys like Medlen, Heyward, Kimbrell, and Freeman long term with about 10 million left over this year.

    And for the record, ATL can't continue to win every Medlen start, but his numbers (on the surface and beneath) show a clear sign of a top-level starter. ATL has created a roster with few question marks (3B) and few weaknesses (strikeout totals for hitters). It produced the 5th best record in baseball last year and finished 4 games behind the Nats. I am sure this season will be close again.

    All of our best bats are 25 years old or younger and not even in their primes yet. If anything this lineup will be even better in three years as they mature, (prime Heyward anyone?) and we have a proven scouting and farm system that I am confident will replenish the prospect pool. You don't bring up as much talent as we have over the past three years and still have a super deep farm system.

    That being said I still think the Nats are the favorites in the division due to their rotation, but it will be a great race and a great battle over the next few years.

Andrelton Simmons in those 49 games had a 2.2 WAR. Having Simmons for an entire year will make this team a lot better, J.Upton just have to return to his "old" self (2011) and i find that to be more probable than to Martin Prado to be a 6 WAR player again. BJ and Bourn are close they are probably a 4 WAR player. Heyward and Freeman probably will continue to improve, so there's no way the Braves got worse this offseason, you are way off base on that statement.
    Not to mention McCann with a healthy shoulder and IF Uggla returns to 2011 form...
