Braves president Mike Plant was on a Liberty Media stream to investors. He told them the Braves are set up to win now and that "they're going for it." He added the plan is to compliment the core youth

Happy Thanksgiving to all my Atlanta Sports Fan.

And I want Jeff Bezos to give me half his checking account.

Weren't we in on him awhile back? Think it was Julio they wanted at the time.

He was linked with us a couple of times, as was Javier Baez. A few years ago, the Cubs were in the same position as us, only with position prospects. They had more than needed and would have done a two-for-one to get pitching. They swapped Soler for Wade Davis.

Bet they wish they had Jimenez, Cease, and Torres right about meow. They are the major reason I don’t want to be shortsighted. I firmly believe moves can be made while keeping your top prospects much like Houston.

I forgot we even had him...

What do you give him...2 yrs before he's ready?

 

Yeah, thereabouts. I'd say maybe 2022. He was just drafted in June but coming from college he isnt as far away as a HS guy would be. When he was drafted the Braves indicated he'll go through the system as quickly as he allows them to move.

His defense is very advanced, not just having the tools but putting them together. Where as Contreras has the arm but his feet are stuck in quicksand which negates his cannon. His bat doesn’t have Rutschman or Bart potential but it could end up slightly above average. Need to develop it as much as possible but the defense makes him a major leaguer for as long as his knees hold up.

If we dont bring back Donaldson for whatever reason, how would yall feel about trying to trade with the Indians for Jose Ramirez? Its been rumored that they may try to trade him.

Everything I've seen has been about Francisco Lindor and I'd do Lindor in a heartbeat but I'd settle for Ramirez. Ramirez isn't a FA until after the 2022 season.

If we went Lindor im guessing we would move him to third? Havent watched enough of him to know how he compares to Dansby on fielding

After reading up on him it sound like Lindor is the better shortstop of the two. May mean moving Swanson to 3rd if we traded for Lindor

If we traded for Lindor it would likely mean Swanson goes to CLE and I'm totally fine with it.

Think I would be too. I like Swanson but im always down for an upgrade. If we did that I wouldnt mind seeing Camargo get a shot at third. I know most disagree with me but I think he could be something.
