It's like a breath of fresh air every time spring training makes its way around. Very excited for the 2018 Braves! I have a good feeling we will put together a scrappy competitive team!

This comes on tonight and I don't have a way to watch it. For some reason MLB Network doesn't offer you any way to watch their channel without a cable or satelite subscription. They need to get a live streaming app. Everyone has them now days but MLB.

MLB Network isn't even on Sling or YouTube TV. They're way behind the times in that regard. NFL Network is already on Sling.

Folty was a little upset that nobody he "recognized" from the Braves attended the arbitration hearing. The team sent a FO assistat and it's lawyer but nobody else. Folty says it would have been nice to hear why he wasn't worth $2.3M. He adds in he has no worries and is ready to put his head down and go to work to win games.

NFL Network is also available for live streaming on their NFL app. It's how I watched the TNF games.

Braves signed C Chris Stewart to a 1 year deal. Depth only, no impact on Flowers or Suzuki. Stewart will be the next in line at AAA. 

Braves are also reportedly close to adding a position player. Not sure if it's a trade or signing. Anthopoulus stressed that it's a backup type of player and not a splash move. Bowman thinks it's an OF to provide depth if Acuna starts in AAA. Supposed to be final in the next 24 hours. It is widely believed that Acuna will begin in AAA, even Acuna himself said he expects to be delayed a few weeks.

Which is so flipping stupid. That **** should be outlawed. Hopefully MLBPA gets that changed one day.

Freeman says he focused on forearms everyday this off-season. DOB mentions his arms are noticeably thicker. Freeman strengthened up his wrist and got Lasik. He says both are doing great and problem free.

Rio Ruiz says his 3 year body transition is coming along. He's stronger and leaner this Spring. Ruiz also says he trained with Justin Turner's personal hitting coach this winter. Rio says he was able to identify and correct some things in his swing.
