2017 Potential Lineup

1. M. Smith LF 

2. A. Ozzies 2B

3. F. Freeman 1B

4. M. Trout CF

5. Rio Ruiz/Adonis Garcia 3B *Platoon

6. N. Markakis RF

7.  D. Swanson SS

8. T. Flowers C

 

Starting Rotation candidates

Wisler, Blair, Foltynewicz, Lucas Sims, M. Banuelo, Tyrell Jenkins, Williams Perez Free Agent Vet Signing

Bullpen notables

Shae Simmons, Arodys Vizcaino, I. Krol, Paco Rodriguez, J. Grilli, C.Withrow, D. Winkler, Jason Hursch, Hunter Cervenka

 

While relative young all-around you got to believe with the overall talent they can be compeitive and fun to watch in 2017 and special in 2018... Lineup speaks for itself and Wisler/Blair are solid and Foltynewicz, Sims and later Newsome have ace talent.

I would not from a Braves standpoint, and I don't see the Angels accepting that either.

The amount of quality prospect starting pitching in the Braves Minor league are abundant right now and we have a top pick in this year's draft that we can hand pick another strong pitching prospect to replace some traded. We also have built a strong trading relationship with Angels past few years and lot's of talk of entertaining trading proposals for Trout. We would give them a proven good starting pitcher and a good everyday CF for cheap with team control plus 3 very good prospects that's pretty sweet compared to what others maybe able to offer.

 

We would still have Luca Sims, Touki Toussaint, Tyrell Jenkins, Max Fried, Manny Banuelos, Chris Ellis, J. Gant, M. Povse and a draft pick like Jason Groome or Riley Pint

I do expect us to use the SP prospects on a bat. I expect it to be something more like Lucroy. We need a catcher in the worst way.

Yep, this. We'll spend some prospects, but not as many as it would take to pry away Trout. Guys like Toussaint, Allard, Soroka, and the like will be the wave that replaces pieces of the Wisler/Folty/Blair group. The goal of this rebuild is to create a dynasty. For a team with a middle-of-the-road payroll like Atlanta, that means multiple waves of talent coming up through the system.

Which is exactly how the 90s dynasty was built and sustained.

Wave 1

  • Zane Smith - Draft - 1982 - Debut - 1984
  • Tom Glavine - Draft - 1984 - Debut - 1987
  • Pete Smith - Draft - 1984 - Debut - 1987
  • John Smoltz - Draft - 1985 - Debut - 1988
  • Kent Mercker - Draft - 1986 - Debut - 1989
  • Steve Avery - Draft - 1988 - Debut - 1990

Wave 2

  • Brad Woodall - Signed - 1991 - Debut - 1994
  • Terrell Wade - Signed - 1991 - Debut - 1995
  • Jason Schmidt - Draft - 1991 - Debut - 1995 - Traded for Denny Neagle
  • Kevin Millwood - Draft - 1993 - Debut - 1997

Wave 3

  • Damian Moss - Signed - 1993 - Debut - 2001 - Traded for Russ Ortiz
  • Jung Keun Bong - Signed - 1997 - Debut - 2002
  • John Ennis - Draft - 1998 - Debut - 2002
  • Horacio Ramirez - Draft - 1997 - Debut - 2003

This is not an extensive list of all the arms the Braves had coming through in waves and not all of them had success for the Braves. But the point is that the Braves always had arms regardless of if they stayed here or not. That is what the Braves are trying to get back to. Allard and Soroka drafted last year and the guys they drafted this year being the foundation of the next wave of guys in 5, 6, 7 years from now when the Braves have to make decisions on guys like Folty, Wisler, Newcomb, ect since teams only get 6 years of MLB control over players before they have to be paid.
