Yes, but it's not something the GM needs to stick around for. 

So why the meeting? Just for the rule 5 draft?

Are you talking about the Liberty meeting? That's probably just a glorified Christmas party for the properties owned by Liberty. They said Anthopolous had accepted his invitation to it months ago. Minasian stayed back to monitor the Rule 5.

Hes got potential to be a nice depth piece

 

Just to be clear, it's a long shot. He hasn't had a minor league ERA under 4 since 2014. This seems like a deep dive from Braves scouts. If they're right about him, they deserve a bonus.

That's actually what I'm saying. This move looks crazy on the surface and seems like a very low percentage play...but so did drafting Gattis. Braves scouts are tireless.

All three selections are pure depth pieces.

Creasy will likely be returned or be at AAA in case someone needs a breather.

Minor league selections R5 don't need to be returned. They're just part of the Braves org now.

"Brian Snitker says: "I would like [free agents Evan Gattis and Matt Adams]. All that kind of stuff is going to be up to [GM] Alex [Anthopoulos] as he rounds out this team and things like that. I think the world of both of those guys.""

 

I'm currently preparing my tears of joy for the Gattis reunion.

I could break out my old "El Oso Blanco" t-shirt.

Unless AZ pays a huge amount of Grienke's contract, there's not going to be a major prospect. AZ would be better off just trying to trade Peralta and Bradley by themselves.

Yeah that was the part that made me wonder. No one's giving up a major prospect and taking on his salary.

That's not a rumor, that's some random person saying what he would do. Dont see it happening at all.

He says scenario being discussed. Maybe I'm misinterpreting that part wrong.

Maybe but it's hard for me to trust a 3 week old account with 20 followers. We'll see.

There's been reports the Braves were still in on Realmuto. Mark Bowman did some digging and said that's false. He said the Braves did their homework and monitored the market but have not talked to Miami since McCann signed. Bowman also added the Braves are not interested in talking to Miami now and have moved on.

Braves interested, braves not interested. Repeat. 

Why would we still be interested in realmuto after getting McCann back? We need an outfield and a ace.... not another catcher.
