Yankees will beat them in 4 games instead of 3 in the ALDS.
Glad he's out of the AL East.

Man, what a terrific offseason for the Yankees in many, many different ways.

Opening day can't come fast enough for Yankees fans!

out of the NL East too, but now I'm scared the market for Nolan Arenado could include Nats/Braves.
Great signing for my Twins.

Theyíve improved the bullpen and now with Donaldson, improved a well hitting line up. I like our chances in the division. Problem is they canít win in Yankee Stadium and thatís probably not changing anytime soon.
The Twins are no joke

I'm a Yankees fan but I'm not going to joke about them being a pushover for the Yanks.

Bryant is one of the most overrated players in the league.

Atlanta has had talks with both the Cubs and Rockies about Bryant and Arenado. They held off because they were hoping to bring back Donaldson but they will likely focus on Arenado as Bryant will be a FA soon and Boras is his agent.

Iíd rather the Braves go big on Arenado (although I believe he can void his contract in 3-4 years) or find a short-term OF bat than Bryant. If they get a bat in FA then Camargo starts at 3rd with Riley at AAA to start the season. They still have an abundance of prospects that AA needs to make a move using their pitching prospects, one of the two OF prospects and Riley.

All of the writers following JD deal were way off, so Iíll take anything they publish with a grain of salt.

One of the Braves top beat writers is suggesting that the Braves may target an OF'er now like Ozuna and let Riley and Camargo battle for the 3B job. If they both struggle they will then look to the trade market to address 3B.

If they do trade for Arenado both Pache and Ian Anderson should be untouchable but I would consider moving Waters.
I'll continue to laugh at the Twins until they start beating the Yanks

It's not a risk free signing at Donaldson's age, either.
The Braves are also looking into Castellanos for LF  
Jay on the Island : 1/15/2020 10:37 am : link
I have never been a fan of his because of his poor defense but with Inciarte in CF and Acuna in RF they could cover more ground to mask some of Castellanos' defense. Plus CF Christian Pache will be ready at some point next season.

+1 more. Cool that they at least compete for their fanbase. Twinkies are one of the more respectable AL clubs.
