    Man, what the Sox are doing right now is painful to watch. Theyíre gonna finish under Baltimore.

    I'd say time for new GM. If he hasn't turned team around in five years chances are he is not.

    This team stinks. Poorly put together with many holes. 40 million dollars in bad contracts doing nothing for team. Has little in farm as most been traded away.

    Atkins been here longer than 5 years bro. AA started with a way worse situation, and had us as the best team in the league in 5 years.

    AA does it again.

    ď Harris and the Braves agreed to an eight-year, $72 million contract late Tuesday night. The deal comes just two weeks after Atlanta and Austin Riley agreed on a 10-year, $212 million deal.

    The Braves announced the deal, which includes a $15 million club option for 2031 with a $5 million buyout and a $20 million club option for 2032 with a $5 million buyout. Harris will draw an annual salary of $5 million the next two seasons, an annual salary of $8 million from 2025-26, a $9 million salary in 2027, a $10 million annual salary from 2028-29 and $12 million in 2030.Ē

    Serious question: is AA the best contract negotiator in the league? He doesnít spend much in FA, but heís been shooting 100% on his extensions for his entire career.

    A great point brought up in another thread. Another AA gift for Atkins.

    So far yea but at some point it wont work out.


    They did with a championship with that strategy so doesnt really matter if not all works out anyway. And they are currently 4th best record this year with a good mix of young and old so no one probably complaining until later on.

    If we allow ourselves to step out of the Atkins/AA debate, we can also then allow ourselves to see that as a great gift AA gave to this organization and fan base as a whole.

    Honestly, this is very insulting to every fan. We spend the money. Give the credit where it is due, to the fans that bust their ***** at jobs they hate so that they can go see this team.

    Why are we bringing things up that AA has done since he quit on the team? Guess people must be upset at Atkins doing a better job here than AA ever could?
