Credit where it's due: over the past two months, AA's added four quality relievers and a former Cy Young-winning starter.  The opportunity cost was a former first round pick in Allard, Wentz, a d

Jon Morosi reporting the Braves are interested in Mike Minor.

Enough, guys. Don’t need to litter the thread with this.

 I wouldn't overpay for him. His FIP of 3.72 suggests that his current ERA of 2.40 is a touch lucky. His swing-and-miss stuff is clearly back, though. And it's that reason why I never wanted us to let him go. Over the last 12 years, Minor was the best Brave at missing bats (among starters...Kimbrel obviously wins otherwise).

I never wanted the Braves to get rid of Mike Minor. I understand it was just a business move and they couldn't wait 2 years for him to pitch again. But I'd gladly take him back with open arms.


Whats crazy to me is we could have legit had a pitching staff right now of  Mike Soroka, Mike Minor, Charlie Morton, Alex Wood, and Max Fried    That is a very good pitching group that would have been grown from the ground up in our system and probably one of the best in the league 1 to 5.  We churn out top tier quality pitchers like no ones business i just hope we can end up holding on to them more often than letting them go more often than not.

Was it coppy or wren that built the farm? I ain't complaining about that 

Coppy did most of it. Wren gave us some big names like Acuna and Albies. Coppy did the Wood trade that brought Hector Olivera to Atlanta. Trading Wood never made sense, he was the #2 SP on the team that year and 24 years old. Coppy just became dead set on getting Olivera because he picked LA over Atlanta as an international free agent. So he was willing to do anything to get him anyway.  Coppy finally admitted in 2016 that he made a mistake and wishes he had never agreed to it.

As much as I think we could use more SP I'd take what we have now over Morton and Wood.

Charlie Morton is an ace now. He has a 2.43 ERA for Tampa this year, 2nd in the AL for ERA. 100 IP, 120 K, 34 BB. That comes after a 3.13 with Houston last year. He K'd 201 in 167 innings last year. Had just 64 walks. The guy has become one of the better arms in the league.

He's also like 36 years old.

I can't think of him being good except for this year and last.

Not a long track record, but he's been really good for going on three years now. Something seemed to click for him at the tail end of 2016 and since then he's been one of the 25 best SPs in the majors. Would loved to have signed him to a 1-2 year deal this past offseason.
