    It appears they are looking at money and analytics more than locker room value. Which is unfortunate because with the way snit manages the locker room aspect plays a bigger role. I?ll gladly be wrong about this but I don?t have high hopes. At least they did get one championship outta the deal.

    Why lock up albies, acuna, Harris with affordable deals to then NOT turn that into dansby or Freddie long term? Not to mention losing fried after this yr.
    Because there will be better value somewhere else. How often do top dollar FAs actually end up being worth it? It happens, but for every Bonds or Maddux, there's a dozen Jason Heywards. Extensions on young players is just plain money better spent. How many good young players will they be looking to extend over the next 7 years with the money that would have gone to an average SS?

    I really like dansby as a player, and I like bellinger also. Maybe dansby can continue his great play, and bellinger can rebound in Chicago. I won't pull for them against by braves, but I've always sorta liked the cubs also.

    Thanks to MLB blackouts you won?t have player stories like this anymore or regions close to a team being extremely loyal to a team since they can never watch them play. /rant

    Yeah. And until the regional networks and MLB can figure out a reasonable streaming package we are back in the dark ages for baseball.

    Braves just extended newly acquired Sean Murphy for 6 years and $73 MIL escalating contract. Only $4 MIL and $9 MIL next season then $15 MIL per season the next 4

    More cost effective than a FA.

    Bump rather than start another thread.

    Has there been anything on the insider boards regarding the Bally situation? I assume with the financial fallout, the prospects of MLB being on Bally+ is not going to happen.

    Currently on YoutubeTV and have no plans to switch to cable, Fubo or DTV Stream. Guess I'm hopeful that the whole thing falls apart and MLB takes control of the broadcasts on MLB TV. Hopefully there is some clarity to the situation by the time the season kicks off in April.

    The worked out a deal with someone just a week or so ago. Youtube TV I think. Expensive as hell. I'll probably be trying out MLBTV and a VPN this year.

    It was fubo and their base price immediately increased about $15 per month. I would have paid $20 per month for Bally plus but since they are flirting with bankruptcy I doubt they will secure any MLB rights for that platform at this point.

    I don't like this move.

    Big drop off from dansby to arcia. I really thought they would roll with Grissom. I like the way the kid plays

    Just eye test on Grissom, he has no range. Really like his bat though

    Maybe right but he looked like he covered ground pretty good at 2B last year. Thought he was the future at ss for sure, but yeah gotta have range to play the position

    If spring training Ozuna can show up in the regular season they can afford a weaker bat at SS. What the Braves can not afford to happen is Ozuna/Rosario/other LF platoon and SS all stinking it up.

    I know that they want Darnaud and Murphy to get DH at bats as well but they do need some days off. DH used to be a 30hr 100rbi position. They can?t have another season of no production at LF or DH

    Bump. Not so much as Ozzie at SS, doubt they do that now without having played him there in ST, but that I expect a trade. Arcia is barely a half decent backup.
