Read it could be 8 years for 125 million. Completely fine with that number for Freeman.

That's most likely going to end up being a bargain. Bout out his arbitration years, plus five more (including his prime). What a great day.

I'm hoping to see more good things out of Julio. With baseball coming around the corner it reminds me that one of the crappy things about living in Houston is I don't get Braves games on SportsSouth : /

Finally saw the numbers on Teheran's extension. If he stays on par with last year's performance (and I would expect him to improve with his talent, skill set, etc.), that deal will likely be a bargain for his later arbitration years. I'm definitely glad to see the Braves invest in him.

Yup, another great extension. John Hart is having a real impact in our front office.

Braves signed Craig Kimbrel to 4 yr extension. "He will earn $42 million over that span."

http://www.sbnation.com/mlb/2014/2/1...ract-extension

So we locked up Freeman, Heyward, Teheran, and Kimbrel. This is great!

I didn't think this would happen - figured trading him was more likely. WOW. Great news. There must be more $ in the coffers. That and making a splash to win back fans pissed about the new stadium deal.

I like the idea of keeping this core group together. Unfortunately I think this means that Heyward is gone after the two year deal is up. If he becomes the player we thought he would be I don't know if we can afford him without a home town discount. If he doesn't become that player I don't know if we sign him with the hopes he will get there (especially after seeing Uggla not return to form for 3+ years.).

The list of the 15 worst MLB contracts. No surprise to see BJ (5th worst) or Uggla (13th worst) make the list.

didnt see this mentioned but the Braves cut Mat Gamel the other day, he reinjured his knee during a personal workout, so that potential bat is gone. Not too much of a blow as he was a wildcard when he signed.

Good news: just extended Frank Wren's contract

Bad news: Fredi's contract was extended too.

They wouldn't announce the length though.

Supposedly Andrelton is the next to be extended. I suspect he will have a new deal by the time the regular season starts
