    I’ll give it a listen later... just saying when I posted last year and said I find the think 17’, was it for us and I said I thought it would be 18’. It was in my statements about how I thought we were rushing Swanson, when we’re still a year away.

    But I do think 18’ happens KD’s a lot of promise for us. Swanson and Albies are already in the show along with Gohara and Newcomb. With Acuna set to join soon after, we are seeing that first wave of prospects. I honestly think Albies could compete for an All-star spot at 2B and Acuna will be if not the winner in the ROY conversation. I’m excited to find out about the work Gohara has done on a third pitch and see if Newcomb has improved his control. So I’m excited!

    "The Braves’ lineup has lost a lot of pop with the departures of Kemp, Matt Adams, and Brandon Phillips, and the team’s primary hope is that its young players emerge as power threats, Gabriel Burns of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution writes. Continued development from Ozzie Albies, Rio Ruiz, and Johan Camargo would be a boon for the team, and big things are expected from star prospect Ronald Acuna. There’s also still the potential for another addition, GM Alex Anthopoulos said: “We’ve talked about the loss of power and how to make up for it. I don’t have an answer today. Normally you’d say ’Wow, it’s late January, how do you not have an answer?’ But there’s a lot of free agents still out there and there’s a lot of bodies.”"

    There's a lot of bodies at strip clubs too but unless you throw some *********g dollars at them, they aren't going to do sh** for you!!!!!! Idiots!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The Braves are in the process of attempting to complete a deal with Peter Moylan.
    He is back.

    Like the statement. Why not sign the Moose? He and Freddie look like twins. Crappy article: https://www.mlb.com/news/braves-unli...as/c-266386134. Looks like we will formally bend over and stand pat. Damn. Freddie and the Moose or Freddie and Moosey sounded like a great bedtime story to tell the kids but oh well. We're too busy hoarding the money for the higher ups and hoping panning for gold on ocean sand will pay out big dividends in all these prospects. Even at moneyball, if that's what we're playing, we're doing a piss poor job at 19th: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2...aying-the-most
