ATLANTA -- Though the Braves will continue to monitor what appears to be a high-risk free-agent bullpen market, adding a reliever stands as their one offseason want that could at least somewhat comfortably go unsatisfied. Braves general manager Alex...

Once more into the breach
As for the free agent deals ... The Braves were the team that offered the extra year to guys like D.Lowe and BJ Upton. How'd that turn out? AA believes Braves have to see value in ENTIRE contract, not just sign a guy to help for '19 and PRAY the 2-3 yrs after aren't a disaster@FriedBasballATL All these arms are just assets which are used to gain value assets back to use. If they are not going to be used this year and the braves want to win then trade them for value. Also this 1 to 2 year term is hurting Atlanta from getting free agentsTV / Radio Personality
At one time, Glavine, Smoltz, Chipper, Andrew, Freddie and others were prospects. They could have been used as trade chips. As a GM you just want to be careful. Gotta be slow to part with elite prospects. But yes, they have to move some of them at some point, and they will.@FriedBasballATL All these arms are just assets which are used to gain value assets back to use.

Wright is arguably one of the top-10 pitching prospects in the game. And Touki may have just passed him. Pache is probably one of ATL's two most valuable position prospects. It's just more than I'm comfortable giving up.@FriedBasballATL I still don't understand how you wouldn't give.up Wright and pache and touki for 3 yrs of a two time cy young winner ..TV / Radio Personality
Happ and Morton are both No.2 starters on a good team. Both top-25 in MLB. Not number one starters ... but still "top of rotation," which I define as a No.1 or No.2 starter on a good team. A true ACE would be great! But the cost may prove too high. Adding vet No.2 still helps.@FriedBasballATL The only problem with all these guys, is which one is **** to be THE ONE. THE NUMBER ONE. That's what this team's lacking right now.TV / Radio Personality
How do you define "number one"? Personally, I say a "number one" is a guy who can be the best starter on a good team. Since there are, on average, 15 winning teams in a given year ... I say it's the top-15 starters in MLB. Folty: 11th best WHIP, 8th best ERA.@FriedBasballATL The only problem with all these guys, is which one is **** to be THE ONE. THE NUMBER ONE.

MLB Network has been promoting Thursday’s Dennis Eckersley special all week long. Do you know that Eckersley was almost traded to the Braves in 1986 for shortstop Rafael Ramirez? Eckersley was then a starter with the Cubs. Wonder if he’d be in Cooperstown if that had happened.TV / Radio Personality
