Saving Liberty Media and the Braves from financial ruin

The prevailing theme of the 2018-19 offseason, as far as Braves fans are concerned, has been the level of spending that the organization has committed in order to improve upon their surprising 2018 campaign. Many Braves fans are clear in what they want — for an organization that hasn’t won a playoff series since 2001, a deep playoff run in 2019 is clearly the goal, and fans want to see their team stop at nothing to get there. With...

Braves execs McGuirk, Anthopoulos defend spending choices

 Braves fans have been none too pleased to see a surprising NL East title and NLDS appearance followed up by a relatively quiet offseason. While Atlanta made a big splash early by signing Josh Donaldson to a one-year deal and followed that with the nostalgic addition of Brian McCann, there’s been little activity since. Atlanta re-upped with Nick Markakis on an affordable one-year deal which, while reasonable from a financial perspective, did little to satiate those who’d been hoping for...

Atlanta Braves Spring Training Preview: Outfield

A familiar group returns for another run in 2019.

The Atlanta Braves’ outfield will have a similar look as Ronald Acuna Jr, Ender Inciarte and Nick Markakis return for the 2019 season. The only real question mark as far as the roster goes is whether or not Adam Duvall can bounce back and provide the team with some depth off the bench. The team is also bringing top prospects Cristian Pache and Drew Waters to camp so this will be a position group worth paying attention to for the next...

Braves open camp with eyes on the prize

As the Braves open camp, they'll provide a glimpse of how much they have progressed since claiming an unexpected division crown last year. Freddie Freeman, Ronald Acuna Jr. and Ozzie Albies will once again be in a lineup that has been enriched by the addition of Josh Donaldson, the former American League MVP Award winner who thus far arguably ranks as baseball's top free-agent signee.
