I seriously am excited as hell about both of these signings. Only 1 year each and I always loved watching both these pitchers. Perfect for opening up Suntrust and watching from the new chophouse.

I'm just happy that big round man won't be able to pitch against us anymore. Bartolo!

Colon is gonna eat innings for us and this is only a one year deal. It is clear our front office doesn't want to rush our young arms up. If Dickey and Colon pitch well they can be moved at the deadline.

Team is pretty much set. Anything can happen with Coppy at the helm but I say we sit on our prospects for one more year before opening the gates.

Signing Dickey and Colon lets the Braves give Newcomb a full season in AAA, not even consider rushing Fried. It's smart.

It's always been the year. We have 54 mill on the books for 2018. Go look at that free agent class and you'll see why

I'm with you. I won't hate any 1 year deals we give out. We'll be prepared to go all in in 2018.

The best part about these guys are, if they are pitching well, we can move them at the deadline and try to steal some more prospects

This is pretty much what it is. It's a smart play especially in a weak FA pitching market.

Who, and where are you gonna put him?

The frustrating part of this team is that we have so many average-slightly above average positions right now. Sorta tough to move anyone because they're not necessarily bad in an era that we are retooling.

Could totally see us overpaying for Matt Harvey.

Anyone have a quick rundown of '18 free agents?
