It’s seemed very odd that Miami has held onto a trade target like J.T. Realmuto as long as they have. But no longer, as they don’t mind seeing last year’s 4.8 WAR catcher another 18-19 times a year wearing a different uniform.

Craig Kimbrel, with World Series now secured, appears to be a target for the Braves. Bring that career 31.8% K-BB rate on over here. Now. Braves Country sees you, Anthopoulos. And we see you preparing to upgrade big and in a hurry.
