He’s a perfectly fine player, but he is more of a nice complimentary player than a middle of the order anchor they need/want and will be costly in terms of acquisition cost and is another example of them not getting a player they really want/need and have to settle for a player a tier or 2 below what they were going for.

Ok, fair enough. I guess most consider him unlikely to reproduce last season’s output?

More or less, yes. I see him more as a low-mid 20s HR .260-270/.310-.325/.435-.450 type guy he’s been most of his career and not the 35+HR and .030-.050+ points higher across the board on the triple slash line he was last year. Along with averagish defense in CF and above average in the corners. Again a perfectly fine player but not a lineup anchor, necessarily.

I will always appreciate Moore for dominating us for 8 innings so that we could complete the largest 9th inning comeback in postseason history

In a stunning swap of big contracts, the Dodgers have traded first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, left-hander Scott Kazmir, right-hander Brandon McCarthy and infielder Charlie Culberson to the Braves in exchange for outfielder Matt Kemp.


Braves might be ready to sell some pitching?

That braves/dodgers trade is confusing. I don't like the Dodgers getting all of that salary relief.

Since all that money was coming off the books next year anyway, that Dodgers deal has to be for Yu Darvish money, right?

No, its to avoid the harsher penalties from being repeat offenders next offseason. They're re-setting for next year's monster free agent class.

I'm sure MLBPA will be all over the Braves when Acuña starts 2018 in the minors, just like with Bryant and the Cubs.

Me too. But, the Dodgers have to worry about keeping Kershaw too. Not sure if even they would give out 2 separate 250+ mill deals in the same off season.

They have to re-sign Keyshawn (or at least replace him plus probably another 1-2 rotation spots) I also think Machado is a better fit for them. Move Seager to 2B, or Turner to 1B (Bellinger to OF until Tuner’s deal is up). Regardless, horsefeathers you Braves.

I'll worry more when Bryce renames his dog Dodger. But this is still kinda infuriating.
