In this thrilling Hot Stove season, let's remember to spare some sympathy for the D-backs. Their trade of Paul Goldschmidt to the Cardinals was a good one, a smart, prudent move for a franchise in transition, one that brought back an impressive haul...

The release of the 2019 Draft Top 50 list had the MLB Pipeline staff thinking about Drafts in years past. Teams always want to get that first pick right, and there have been some real home runs hit in the first round. Who were the best first-round...

In most industries, meetings are a bore and chore. They consist of PowerPoints, "action items" and "check-ins," and the end result, usually, is just an agreement to "circle back" to everything at yet another meeting at a later date. Meetings are a...

Reports throughout the season indicated the Braves could have as much as $50-$60 million to spend on boosting the team next season. While David O’ Brien is merely providing an estimate, he believes the Braves are now working with “perhaps $20 million or..

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...

Pretty much this. The Braves have oodles of really intriguing guys who have significant time at Triple-A. There isn't a need to find guys that can start, but upgrades should at least get a looksy.@leprekhan I think SP is one of those wants where we should only make a run for one if we can get a top of the rotation guy...otherwise just ride with what we haveBeat Writer / Columnist
I love CJ, but he was just drafted this past year. I don't necessarily think the Braves are thinking "I don't want anyone, including Austin Riley, blocking CJ Alexander" or similar thoughts.Beat Writer / Columnist
I think that the Braves have more money that DOB is putting out there but are not looking to spend boatloads of monies. I don't see starting pitcher as a need, but a want. I don't think its hard to fill the other two needs with what monies I think are available.@leprekhan Let's say DOB is right about the money the Braves have left to spend. How could the possibly address all of their needs (OF, starter, bullpen) with that little cash?Beat Writer / Columnist
All 3 are different with Jenista being a more advanced bat that could move quickly. Waters might have the highest upside in the minors for the Braves period. Contreras has a ton of value as a catching prospect, but catcher has a pretty high fail rate amongst prospects.@leprekhan Drew Waters, William Contreras and Grayson Jenista all have been lights out for the Rome Braves. Do those three all have high upside and who is the best?Beat Writer / Columnist
Somewhere in the middle probably. Really impossible to say because we don't know what the draft will hold as well as whether or not the Braves make any moves at the trade deadline.Beat Writer / Columnist
Adell isnt going to help the Braves in 2019 (at least its highly unlikely). I love the guy, but that doesn't really seem like the type of move that the Braves are going to be interested in right now even if I would love it if he was in the org.Beat Writer / Columnist
I loved him as a prospect and I am tempted, but I can't really ignore that his track record in the majors has been spotty. Could be an interesting buy low candidate if the Braves see an easy to make adjustment.Beat Writer / Columnist
Happy birthday to @Braves outfielder Ronald Acuña Jr., who turns 21 today. Last season, the NL Rookie of the Year became the youngest player ever to homer in five straight games. He also hit eight leadoff home runs, becoming the youngest player in MLB history to hit that many.Misc
I don't think the Braves and Pirates payrolls are going to be that similar tbh. The Braves will outspend them by $30 million easily which is no joke.@leprekhan are the Braves just the Pirates 2.0? Have a contention window open up but squander that chance because ownership won't spend money?Beat Writer / Columnist
We had a lot of good questions and some decent answers, though the Brantley thing went down soon thereafter. But lot of good back and forth. Check it out.Beat Writer / Columnist
