Welcome to this week's edition of FanPost Friday, and if you're eating chicken while reading this, I pray that it's boneless. We have to keep safety in mind during these stressful times, folks.

The good news is that we won't be talking about that unfortunate incident, as I'm sure you guys were just way too shocked to even mention it in the FanPost section once that particular bit of news broke. Meanwhile, there's more important news to discuss, and we'll get into it right now.

How will the Braves fix their catching situation?

To say that the Braves are currently in a patchwork situation when it comes to their catchers would be an understatement. Both Tyler Flowers and A.J. Pierzynski are short-term solutions, and a long-term solution isn't readily apparent right now. This FanPost brings up three ways in which the Braves could possibly fix this, and usc11mtc is even willing to move Julio Teheran in order to fix it.

What should the Braves do with Arodys Vizcaino?

Having a good closer really doesn't mean too much when your team is bad, and that's the position that the Braves are in right now when it comes to Arodys Vizcaino. So, with the team currently in rebuilding/wheeling-and-dealing mode, ray pugh has come up with a few ideas as it relates to the Braves possibly getting the most value out of Vizcaino via trade.

The Braves' TV crew receives low marks

Fangraphs is in the process of unveiling the results of their annual TV/Radio broadcasts, and they're currently unveiling the rankings for TV crews across baseball. The Braves' TV crew hasn't done particularly well since Jon "Boog" Sciambi left for ESPN, and OmarReborn shared with us that the TV crew is still ranked near the bottom.

An alternate reality/video game version of the Braves' future

As some of you may know, I love a good sports simulation game, so this caught my eye. SanDiegoBraves is doing a franchise save with the Braves on MLB The Show 16, and he's keeping track of it in this particular FanPost. He's currently in 2018, so if you've got any tips and/or advice to share with him as he hopefully leads the Braves to glory in that alternate universe, then go ahead and help him out.

That concludes our visit to the FanPost section this week. As usual, if you've got thoughts on anything that's related to the Braves and their current trials and tribulations, then go ahead and post it in the FanPost section. As long as you avoid eating your chicken too quickly while doing the post, you should be fine and you'll have a good time while writing out your thoughts.
