Default 2014 - 2015 Atlanta Braves offseason thread

Guess it's time to kick this one off...

Traded OF prospect Kyle Wren to the Brewers for right-handed pitch in prospect Zach Quintana. In the span of about 2 months, the Braves has gotten rid of 3 Wrens.

If all the rumors floating around are correct, it looks like the only guys not available for trades are Andrelton Simmons, Julio Teheran, Freddie Freeman, Craig Kimbrel, and Alex Wood.

From what I've seen, the names most brought up for trades are both Uptons, Heyward, Gattis, and Walden.

Going to be interesting to see how our new GM runs things. I would hate to lose Heyward. He is a fantastic outfielder and pretty solid bat in the lineup. I think having a new hitting coach will be a good thing and can hopefully propel J Hey to up above a consistent .250 and also get Freddi up closer to .300.

JHey has only 1 sub .250 year. I think he'll usually hit somewhere between .260 - .280. If he can get that hitch or whatever it is out of his swing when facing lefties he could do even better. He's one of my favorites right now (love watching him and Andrelton on defense) so I'd hate to see him go, but only signing through his arbitration years didn't make getting a long-term deal a probability.

I don't know if Freeman will be a consistent .300 hitter. I think the norm for him will wind up being around .290/25 HR/90-100 RBI. In years where he keeps his strikeout numbers down, he'll have a good chance at hitting .300 or better.

I checked out the new ballpark renderings and I see we won't have many seats in the outfield. I don't like that in ballparks.

Kind of looks like a minor league ballpark in that regard.

I've seen the renderings as well and it just doesn't seem to have that much of a "wow" factor. Maybe I'll change my mind when they release more detailed renderings. I will say this, people will bitch and complain about the location of the new stadium and that's fine. I rode by the site back in July and I will say I think it's a better location. It had a safer feel to me than Turner Field does.

I think they'll try to move both Uptons. Justin will be a FA after next season and BJ...well do not have to explain about him. Be nice if they could package both of them to Boston and get JBJ to play CF for us, Gattis will get a chance to play LF if Justin leaves during spring training, but catching duties will be gearing towards Betancourt next season. If Gattis does not pan out then he will undoubtedly be traded. He'll get a good return if traded to an AL team. Would not be surprised if Chris Johnson is put out there. His outbursts the last couple of seasons has rubbed a lot of people the wrong way. Of course, salaries of BJ and Chris Johnson means the Braves will get very little in return for them

It is in a better location and I think the "Wow" factor will be more about the complex surrounding the stadium rather than the actual stadium. It is suppose to be a whole game=day experience.

I think thats a decent move. Not sure where they are going to look for a second baseman unless they are going with the guy who finished last season (cant think of his name). Honestly I would like to see the Braves resign Heyward and try to trade both Uptons and Gattis. I believe they could net some decent returns for those guys and possibly find a guy to play second plus two outfielders. If push comes to shove Heyward could slide to center to be able to open up more options in the outfield situation.

Heyward to Cards for Shelby Miller. I really like this trade. Miller has a 3.33 career ERA in 3 seasons. Really young guy I think will continue to improve and adds a good starter to the rotation. Really wanted to see Heyward signed long term but I understand why they made the move.

Jordan Walden is a part of the trade too. Braves also received Tyrell Jenkins who is a pitching prospect.

I think this is the signal of the Braves plans. Rebuild. I fully expect to see both Uptons moved as well. Also I would expect Gattis to go. Braves are going to go for some young controllable players to pair with some of the guys that are currently signed long term on the team. Trying to build a competitive team for when the new ballpark opens.

Someone brought up trading one of the Uptons to the Red Sox for JBJ.. I would be good with that if it was BJ.
