Braves Offseason Priorities in a Post-Coppy World

October 9, 2017 Andy Harris 1

On Sunday, October 1, I posted a comedy piece on this very website that said the Braves top offseason priority was trading Matt Kemp to open up a starting outfield spot for Braves top prospect Ronald Acuna. Now, at the time I didn't realize it was comedy. But like the clueless dad on a typical…

The Braves Top Offseason Priority: Parting Ways With Matt Kemp

October 1, 2017 Andy Harris 1

As my colleague Dylan Short recently wrote, 2018 will be pivotal season for the Atlanta Braves. For the first time, a good portion of the roster should be filled with young talent originally brought into the organization through the rebuilding process.

August 15, 2017 Dylan Short 2

By this point, most fans have heard about the Atlanta Braves' starting pitching talent down on the farm.
