2019 Atlanta Braves Regular Season Thread

Recommended Posts

Here's ESPN's Braves update on Kimbrel and Keuchel:

"The Braves: Atlanta's bullpen needs help, and the rotation could benefit from a veteran; because of Kimbrel's long history with the Braves, he could step right in and take over at closer after going through a mini spring training. But Atlanta's budget ceiling, set by Liberty Media, tends to be inflexible, so taking on $7 million or more in the middle of the season (which is what Keuchel and Kimbrel will probably make, prorated) might not be the best option for the Braves. The front office might prefer to wait for cheaper bullpen alternatives who will eventually become available in the trade market.

 

Kimbrel is said by teams to still be looking for a big, multiyear deal -- and the Braves have so much pitching on the rise that they might choose more modest means to fix the problem."

Liberty squashed anything Anthopolous attempted seems like.

At what point does MLB step in and force LM to stop cutting payroll. I believe the NBA did it with New Orleans when they took over that franchise years ago

SMDH......We need Arthur Blank or maybe the Morehouse Commencement Speaker Billionaire to step up an buy the Atlanta Braves.  How in the H#LL did Liberty Media ever get control of the Braves?

Liberty acquired the Braves in a tax break deal with Time Warner. Time Warner was buying it stocks back and in exchange for the stocks they gave Liberty the Braves.

The change will happen in 2020 or 2021. It also may be Truist Park. They may not add the Bank in. Either way they could have done better.

All the good ones must have been taken.....
