I bet the big news is that we signed Prado not traded for Upton.

I think Hudson will probably not be back after next season, and McCann will walk as well. That frees up around $20 million for raises to Heyward, Freeman, and hopefully Prado.

I agree that Uggla's contract is an albatross. $12 million through 2015 makes it difficult to trade him unless he has a real bounce back season, to the tune of .260 with 30 bombs and 90 RBIs.

Yeap, Uggla is gonna have to be moved next year if we want to keep Prado.

The chances McCann returns is less than 20% IMO. Just can't afford him with all the young contracts and its tough to put all that money into a catcher.

McCann's impending departure has less to so with money and more to do with Christian Bethancourt.

I was somewhat surprised they even picked McCann up for this season.. even tho it should be expected with Braves loyalty.

Not right now. But he should be with another full year in AA/AAA.

I think we're going to need a year stop gap after Mac leaves until Bethancourt is ready.

Gattis maybe?

re: The ATL Thread: Offseason Edition
Very possible. It's a sticky situation. A lot will be determined if we can find a regular LF for this year or not. I think that if the Braves think that Bethancourt is a couple years away, they will play Gattis at C in the minors all year because he needs all the training that he can get back there.

Or he could spend the rest of his career as a LF and they sign some vet to a 1 or 2 year deal at the end of the year.

We'll see.

A .550 OPS at AA is not good

CB doesn't have to hit a lot, just around .250 with some doubles and a few homers. His defense will make up for his lack of offense.

re: The ATL Thread: Offseason Edition
Yeah, he doesn't have to hit a lot with the way he plays defense, but he does have to hit some. Good thing is, he's still young and has time to improve. He's farther away from the bigs than most Braves fans want to believe.

2. SS Simmons
3. RF Heyward
4. 2B Uggla
5. 1B Freeman
6. CF Upton
7. C McCann
8. 3B Francisco

Teheran

Bullpen:

Kimbrel

Solid, but I think Delgado over Teheran and Ramiro Pena over Mejia.

Teheran is going to have to really screw up during Spring Training to not get a spot in the rotation.

Wren has all but said Teheran is going to be the guy.

kind of like he did last Spring Training?

Pretty much, but if Delgado throws like he did last Spring, Julio would still win the job.

They were both awful.
