its unarguable that Roberts blew the game last night.


Kershaw blew the game. Kelly hammered the last nail. I criticize Roberts all the time but last night is not on him. Only idiots....or aggies would think so.

100% no way they fire him after that, now it could put a strain to where if they fail again next year he is out

Roberts should have not let Kelly pitch the 10th And should have removed him after the first batter got on base

re: MLB Offseason Thread - Will Smith to the Braves
If Cole leaves there’s potentially a lot of interesting starting pitching options who shouldn’t break the bank. You know some will be able to be scooped up cheaply

Based on what? All season Kelly is either on or off. He was on for the 8th and so all indications were he could get a couple of outs in the 9th before bringing in Kolerek to pitch to Soto. The other option is go to Jansen who is as big a crap shoot as anyone.

Who is the great shut down reliever we could bring in? That is the biggest issue, that shitpen.

re: MLB Offseason Thread - Will Smith to the Braves
quote:

As hellish as Atlanta's finish was, few teams in the majors are in a better position moving forward than the Braves; the club captured a second straight division title in 2019 and finished with the second-most wins in the National League (97) as homegrown youngsters like Ronald Acuna Jr., Mike Soroka, and Ozzie Albies cemented themselves as stars. Combined with the contributions of Max Fried and Dansby Swanson, the Braves received more WAR from players aged 25 or younger than every club except the Los Angeles Dodgers and Houston Astros, the putative top team in each league. Atlanta also received considerable value from slightly-older-but-still-young fixtures like Mike Foltynewicz (28), Julio Teheran (28), Luke Jackson (27), and, of course, Freddie Freeman (29). This - having a robust core of young talent that can be augmented with veterans through free agency to make a sustainable winner - is the goal of any rebuild, and the Braves have pretty much killed it, their successive first-round exits in the postseason notwithstanding. Dropping a best-of-five series in Game 5 in nightmarish fashion doesn't cast a pall over their future.



quote:

The biggest question facing the Braves this offseason surrounds Josh Donaldson, an impending free agent who was critical to their success in 2019. The former American League MVP rebounded with aplomb following a miserable, injury-marred 2018 campaign - effectively compelling him to settle for a one-year pillow deal in free agency - putting up a .900 OPS (132 wRC+) with 37 homers and 4.9 WAR in 155 games. They have more than enough financial wiggle room to re-sign the veteran third baseman, if they're so inclined (excluding arbitration salaries,the Braves have only $51 million on the books for 2020), but that's just one of the possibilities available to them.

Agreed. There will be a lot of DATers calling for his head if we fall tonight, but it just isn't happening.

Pressure will be on next season though.

The Braves should make Rendon a King's Ransom and make him say no, then shore up the pen and give Markakes a greyhound ticket out of Atlanta. It would be nice to go after Cole but I believe we will be shopping in the Madison Bumgarner aisle.

re: MLB Offseason Thread - Will Smith to the Braves
he seems to be connected to the rangers but i have a feeling the nats are going to make a much more serious run at keeping him than they did with harper

I have faith in Severino who has proven himself an ace, Paxton had a great second half, Tanaka is hit or miss. None are Verlander or Max but Severino/Paxton are on that 2nd tier of aces imo.

re: MLB Offseason Thread - Will Smith to the Braves
I don't believe the Braves have a shot at getting him, but I would make a very competitive offer. Donaldson played great at 3B this year and his bat finally came around, but he still only hit .260 on the year where Rendon hit .319 with similar power numbers and is considerably younger. I would offer him 150 mil over six years and still puts you in the same money you paid for Donaldson.

No its not. Guaranteed the yankees go out and get some starting pitching help.

Rather slim pickings in the free agent class for relievers this year.
