  1. One thing I really like about Swanson is his poised. He doesn't look overwhelm out there and got his head in the game. His defense has look really good as well. I am assuming he will eventually turn into a 15-20 homer SS with time. It look like he will primarily be hitting singles and doubles. It look like he will use the entire field. With Jace actually playing better this year. I think the Braves can actually afford to let Ozzie spend another year in the minors. Speaking of Jace I think the Braves finally found their new Omar/Prado super utility player. He has held his on no matter where the Braves played him. So when Ozzie eventually get called up Jace value will still have value to the team.
  2. Folty and Wisler have the most upside. Folty injury history is my only real concern about him. Wisler need to learn to limit the big inning. That always seem to be his undoing when he struggles. The guys the Braves drafted this year will likely be the real gems but they are all only 18 years old. That is 3-5 years away. I agree about Jenkins future is in the bullpen. He could make a real good closer should they convert him.
  3. We knew it was going to be some growing pains this year. Damn it is rough watching them out there. They can look good for 3-4 or 4-5 innings then just completely implode. So even though this is what you expect when going with young pitchers. I was really hoping someone would have emerge by now to make us feel better about the future of our pitching. Hopefully there are better prospects in the system who are close to being MLB Ready. There is plenty of room in the rotation after Julio.
  4. http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2016/08/braves-to-promote-dansby-swanson.html Well it is finally happening. I would figure Ozzie Ablies will be called-up in Sept. Hopefully these two will be our anchors up the middle similar to Whitaker and Trammel or more recent Utley and Rollins for the next 10-15 years.
  5. Kemp basically cost the Braves around $8M per for the next 3 years. He is still only 31 which he turn just recently. I think the Braves hold onto unless his production just completely falls off which doesn't appear to be happening. Stick him in Lf and we will be fine. Let be honest we need a power bat from the right side and someone who can protect Freddie in the line-up. If the Braves try to solve that in the FA market it will be $20M+ for a player on the decline. On a sidenote this might warm some Braves fans up to Kemp. Matt Kemp wrote this for the Players Tribune. http://www.theplayerstribune.com/matt-kemp-braves-padres-trade/
  6. Now the team is starting to look real good to me. Getting Kris and Jack aboard help ease my two biggest concerns which was FC depth and someone to play behind Dennis. Hopefully Jack and Tiago health will be good. Going into this season I am liking this team a lot. Should still top-5 easily in the East and maybe creep up into top-3 if some of these pieces fall in line with what they are capable of doing.
  7. I haven't been able to watch any of the SL games yet. I see NBATV has our game tomorrow at 4:30 vs Nets. Not sure if it a repeat or not. I will try to catch that one.
  8. Welcome to the Hawks Jack. It took awhile but I am glad to see him finally playing for the Hawks.
  9. We saw how Pat treated Wade. Can't even image what he would have said about Horford.
  10. it cool. He is a character from the Witcher Series. His nickname is the White Flame Dancing on the Graves of his Foes . The dancing on the grave part reminded me of him. http://witcher.wikia.com/wiki/Emhyr_var_Emreis Alright I derailed this topic enough. I am out.
  11. If you understand what this pic mean then I salute you.

  13. I haven't forgotten about him. I am expecting a huge improvement over last year. I am looking for him to be our 6th man. We have seen with DMC and Baze the improvement they made from the 1st year in the system to the 2nd year. Expecting the same from THJR.
  14. Well Atlanta booed the hell out of Glavine when he left for the Mets Eventually Glavine was welcome back after he was a broken down pitcher. Horford will likely get the same treatment. Make no mistake I do think Horford will come to regret this decision. If Boston does not find A REAL STAR PLAYER and not this make believe star player in Horford to take pressure off of him. He will get shit on so badly.
