So the old one is dead... Again... Here's the new one... No rules this time. Just a wonderful thread for all your little brain droppings and desires for our wonderful Atlanta Braves.
I maintain the stance that we don't need to put any significant effort into spending alot for a rental. I would be mad in fact. If we make a deal, it has to be with the short and long term in mind. We have the ability to add a franchise cornerstone and if we just put a bandaid somewhere where it is not needed, I will seriously rebel.
So what kind of cornerstone deal you ask? I want top position prospects. Either AAA on the verge of MLB or AA with some high projectability... OR I want a Justin Upton, Mike Moustakas type talent... MLB service time but plenty of time until FA. Potential superstar type... I'm dead serious here. We have arms for days and if we make moves, it needs to be shoring up our future at the positions of most need. If you do not draft for need, then darn you, you trade from strength to bolster weakness.
In FW I trust and I look forward to your intellectually stimulating mind bombs as usual.
Oh, and I'm a happy daddy to be. Due date is 25 Feb (I'm gunna talk the wife into holding out until 29 Feb as I want a Leap Day baby! All Baby name ideas are welcome and appreciated!
