Tomahawk Take Editor’s Note: An engaging demeanour forward during a 2017 anticipation value of a Atlanta Braves. If your anticipation ball joining has a playoff complement set up, we substantially saw good value late in a year with Dansby Swanson, Matt Kemp and Freddie Freeman…heck they competence have won we a trophy. Actually, only those few sentences has me now meditative about anticipation baseball, my keepers for subsequent year and a draft! I consider a Braves will have anticipation value during many positions in 2017 heading off with Freeman. Can’t go wrong with a durable, unchanging hitter with power. I consider Ender Inciarte and Kemp will both have outfield value and a pitching could be surprises late in a draft…via Julio Teheran, Bartolo Colon and RA Dickey. Gotta uncover adore to Dansby Swanson as shortstop always seems to be light with talent. Mostly, other than Freddie, you’ll many expected be means to squeeze Braves players late in a breeze and wish they have a good season.
As a 2017 anticipation ball deteriorate approaches, we take a demeanour during a biggest news and storylines from any club. We’ll underline one group any weekday … and we’ll finish adult on Feb. 15, a initial day all teams will have their pitchers and catchers on a margin for workouts.
The rebuilding Atlanta Braves have finished a good pursuit restocking their classification with immature talent over a past year. Moving into their new SunTrust Park in suburban Cobb County is another step toward a uninformed start. About that new park, the vital disproportion in a dimensions from Turner Field is in right-center, where a wall will be only 375 feet from home image (it was 390 previously). Hmmm … we consternation who competence advantage from that?
Tomahawk Take Editor’s Note: Yeah, yeah ESPN we all lonesome this story a other day. If this trade happens, I’d be shocked. The Braves don’t unequivocally have a need for Dozier as I’m not certain it improves a stream second bottom position with Jace Peterson and Sean Rodriguez and we don’t consider he can make a pierce to third base. On a other hand, a Dodgers need a second baseman and are peaceful to give a Twins their #2 prospect. Why hasn’t that trade happened nonetheless so we can pierce on? Dozier’s 40 home runs would be unequivocally good in a Braves lineup as now we don’t have too most power, nonetheless that’s IF he has another deteriorate like final year…which is never guaranteed. Braves should stay divided from this 30-year-old, generally with Ozzie Albies on his way.
The Atlanta Braves could be a warn trade end for Minnesota Twinssecond baseman Brian Dozier, nonetheless a luck of such a understanding is low, reports Mike Berardino of a St. Paul Pioneer-Press, citing “a source with approach knowledge.”
The Braves have a engorgement of immature arms in their system, that would be an upside for a Twins, who are in need of pitching. Berardino tweets that his source insists a compare with a Twins is a “long shot” for Atlanta.
Dozier had a best deteriorate of his career in 2016, slicing .268/.340/.546 with 99 RBIs and 42 home runs, a single-season record for American League second basemen. The 29-year-old All-Star is guaranteed $15 million over a dual years remaining on his stream agreement with a Twins.
Tomahawk Take Editor’s Note: With all this sleet (projected snow, we hardly got a half an inch) that strike a southeast, Chipper Jones positive us that he was prepared for anything that came his way. If we recall, a final time a Atlanta area got a unequivocally bad sleet storm, Freddie Freeman was stranded in trade and couldn’t get home. He gave his friend Chipper Jones a phone call, afterwards Chipper came and got him on his four-runner. The, now, iconic impulse was prisoner by Chipper’s mother as that’s a initial print you’ll see below. It looks as nonetheless Chipper has upgraded and he posted his new ride. No word nonetheless if he NEEDED to use it, nonetheless I’m certain he used it. The Jones’ are awaiting their new innate baby child so not certain if Chipper could get out and take a few laps in his new ride.
Oh, and a final Instagram post is of Chase as he’s on his approach to Atlanta. Just a humorous dude so we figured I’d share.
