Next Year

The last few years with the Braves has seen like a case of trying to piece together a puzzle.  Lots of good pieces that don't seem to fit together just right.  Some thinking out loud:

KJ at 1st, Prado at 2nd, Escobar SS, Chipper 3rd, Mac C, Blanco CF, Frenchy RF, and a slugger brought in to play left.

Pros:  Better up the middle defense, KJ and Frenchy could both have better years .  Blanco is developing into a true leadoff man.  Escobar could have a breakout season if healthy.

Cons:  Someone made the comment that KJ is not the player the organization thinks he is.  This may be true.  Frenchy may not improve and will always strike out a lot.  Chipper will always miss a lot of games due to injury. 

To me, something in that equation is missing.  Even with a power hitting left fielder, I think they need another power bat from outside the organization.  Picking up one power bat in the off season shouldn't be that hard.  Picking up two might be.  If so, who do you replace, who do you get and how, etc.?
