Braves fans used to love to shite on Liberty Media, but no one can complain about their spending the last few years. Spending money on Donaldson and Ozuna, locking up Acuña and Albies long term.

Yes it does... and now we'll go to Houston and play the best of 5 against the Cubs-Marlins winner.

Game 1 is Tuesday. We'll have Fried and ANderson back and set for games 1 and 2.

We won't lose this playoff series at home. Maybe it's a sign lol

So here’s a question:

Multiple times in the regular season we switched the rotation around to give Anderson an extra day of rest. Let’s say we win game 1 of the NLDS with Fried. Do you consider pitching Wright in game 2 to give Anderson one more day?

Normally your game 1 starter pitches game 4 and your game 2 starter pitches game 5. Because of no off days, Fried would probably pitch game 5 and there’s no way Anderson could pitch more than one game. It allows a bit more flexibility on who to pitch

Anderson wouldn't need one more day.

He'll have 6 days off.

You're point was that he played in the playoffs last year despite an injured elbow - inferring that it contributed to his bad performance and therefore he gets a pass.

I get that.

You're ignoring that he hasn't performed very well in most of his playoff games as a Brave throughout his career. Not just last year.

That's not really disputable.

And no, I'm not on an island. Like I mentioned in my first post - that you apparently ignored - I wasn't even the one to bring it up yesterday.

Lets see if they spend big bucks on Ozuna this fall and Liberty has no say so on the payroll.

It's on AA and Terry McJerk

I don’t think they’ll give Ozuna a long term deal for $20+ AAV with The Battery bleeding so much cash.

My guess is they will go with 1-2 year deals only.

I mentioned it, and here is why.

He has played 15 career playoff games (coming into today). He is 17/60 (.283, not bad) but only has 2 HR and 3 RBI in his playoff career. In 67 plate appearances, he has 3 RBI. That is not good.

He has 5 walks, 5 extra base hits (2 2B, 3 HR), 2 HBP, and 15 K.

I honestly think that has more to do with how cold the rest of our bats go than it has to do with Freddie.

And I'm not going to pretend to figure out how their finances work.

They always claim they're squeezing by even though their revenue to salary ratio was one of the biggest in MLB and their TV deal isn't nearly as bad as it
used to be.I also get the rabbit hole expenses with the Battery I suppose.

I mean,wasn't the entire purpose of the Battery deal meant to increase revenue and payroll to compete with the big boy payroll s?

Lets hope we can continue to "squeeze by" till the new TV deal. At the very minimum I'm think $150 million annually maybe
much more if the streaming big boys get involved.
