The Braves now have a solid bullpen w/ Smith and ODay. Now get Madison B., resign Donaldson and get ready for spring training.
You have to really like where the Braves are right now.
They've done a great job of acquiring and developing talent.
Pache and Waters are both at AAA this year and the Braves should have a LF-Waters, CF-Pache, RF-Acuna OF soon enough which is a great defensive OF and should be a monster offensively too.
Freeman is a FA after 2021 so the next order of business is to get hi extended too, but I think that is fairly easy. They have no money issues and it's an easy sell to him and for him.
Albies and Swanson up the middle are solid and controlled.
The question is what do they do with Austin Riley? If you don't want him to play 3B, then there's no-where for him to play (he was terrible in the OF this year and they have others guys pass him out there anyway)
Personally, I think Moustakas is probably a better fit there gioven his LHed bat and there general need to put another LHed bat in there with Freeman....they have some decisions and it'll be interesting to see what they do.
Also interesting that they let Teheran go. I think MadBum is the good fit there right now. Apparently Will Smith is from that area and there was an interview with Melancon tonight on how they are pretty comfortable making the roles work however (that's good for ATL). Bumgarner is a legit front for the group of kids they have there and if you want the Playoff Pitcher, he's your guy.
