Default Official 2017 Atlanta Braves season Thread

Season's over. We need a full time manager. Lots of young young guys on the roster. Stacked minor league system. 20-10 in the last 30, 12-2 in the last 14.

Current payroll obligations. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...ub?output=html

Top 30 prospects. http://m.mlb.com/prospects/2016?list=atl

I would be OK with giving Snitker a shot. I am glad to see the team doing its due diligence with the hire though.

Coppy has been on record stating that they are looking to sign 2 or 3 starting pitchers, but there doesn't seem to be many attractive options looking at the potential free agent list. Will be interesting to see what they do with the rotation.

I could see the team making a play to land Matt Wieters in free agency (if the O's don't extend him or make a qualifying offer).

I think 2018 will be when we can seriously expect to contend for the playoffs, but I think there will be a lot of progress over next year.

If the Braves want to continue to build off of what the team did in the second half there is no other choice other than Brian snitker. The players love, respect and play hard for him. All of them say nothing but good things about him and he even has Bobby's vote. There is no other choice

Interviews with outside candidates are scheduled and interviews with internal candidates have already taken place.
IMHO-Snitker has earned a chance to coach an entire season

Once Matt Kemp arrived the offense took off. He gives the Braves protection for Freddie Freeman. The Dodgers and Padres are paying some of Kemp's salary for the next three years so I would keep him as long as he is productive.

There was a feeling that he ruins rookie pictures. And there is evidence pointing to that

Hired Washington as a thirdbase coach. I wonder if he is a fallback option just in case Snitker gets off to a rough start next season

Signed RA Dickey to a 1 year deal with an option for a second year. I believe it's a $7.5M salary this upcoming season and an $8M option or $500K buyout for the second year.

Meh.

Yeah, I mean I understand wanting a veteran starter on a short-term deal, but I feel like we could have done better than Dickey. That said, I hope he can pitch like he did in 2012.

Traded (P)Whalen and (P)Povse to the Mariners for Alex Jackson (#6 overall pick in 2014).

Alex Jackson was expected to be a star for the M's, but struggled in the minors after transitioning for Catcher to the outfield (Was also injured in the minors). Povse (3rd rd in 2014) is a big fella with a hard fastball and has an imposing presence on the mound. I hate to lose him as I believe he has some pretty good potential. However, he was stuck behind some other pretty good pitchers so apparently he was deemed expendable. Whalen (12th rd in 2012) was acquired by the Braves in 2015 in the trade that sent K.Johnson and J. Uribe to the Mets. He saw a little bit of action this past season at the ML level and struggled a bit with his command. He has potential, but again he is stuck behind some other pitchers. Both players were ranked in the top 25 of the prospect list for the Braves in various prospect lists.

If the Braves can get Jackson's swing fixed then it could very well be a good trade for the Braves considering the need for bats in the organization. I think Povse will eventually turn into a solid 3 at the ML level and if he can develop his curve a bit more there is potential to move higher.

Could be the plan. He was a HS catcher, but has played the outfield his entire minor league career and by all accounts he has done pretty well in the outfield. However, the organization is kind of catcher scarce.

Tyrell Jenkins traded to the Rangers for Luke Jackson

http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2016/1...ady-feigl.html

Both are from 2010 draft class and both were drafted pretty high. Jenkins had a tendency to give up the long ball in his few ML appearances, but was still a highly rated Braves Prospect. Do not know much about Jackson other than he was roughed up in his few ML appearances. Both are still young so we will have to wait and see which team came out better, but Jenkins is generally believed to have the most upside of the two.

Williams Perez released to clear up a roster spot? You would think they could of found a trade partner to get something in return. Perez has struggled at the ML level, but he is still a viable arm. Would not have gotten a highly rated prospect, but could of gotten something in return than just out right releasing him.
