Tommy La Stella is the name to watch here, he probably wont make the club coming out of spring but if Uggla struggles again. Pastornicky and La Stella might get their shot at 2B



There is no way B.J Upton and Dan Uggla can play as bad as they did last year, can they?
Brandon Beachy coming back healthy will be huge. Gonna be interesting to see what Gavin Floyd does if he can get healthy. That would probably move Wood back to the pen. Cant wait for baseball season to start. Go Braves

Great way to start the thread!
Atlanta Braves ‏@Braves The Braves have agreed to terms with outfielder Jason Heyward on a two-year contract, avoiding salary arbitration.



Glad they were able to get a deal done. it was pretty dumb for them to go to arbitration with only a 300K difference


Jon Heyman ‏@JonHeymanCBS Jason Heyward gets $13.3M for 2 yrs #braves

Jon Heyman ‏@JonHeymanCBS heyward gets $1M signing bonus, $4.5M in '14 and $7.8M in '15. #braves

Hell yes!
on Morosi ‏@jonmorosi Freddie Freeman's extension with Braves will be for huge dollars. One source told me it is in $100 million range. @FOXSports1
Jon Morosi ‏@jonmorosi 46m One source said Freddie Freeman's extension could be as much as $125 million over eight years when it is done. @FOXSports1
Got to worry next is Kimbrel.

I doubt we sign Kimbrel to a multi year deal, We will go to arbitration with him this year, If he wins arbitration and gets 9 million we will trade him next offseason,
These contracts are just crazy. I get it but I still just shake my head.

What's the situation with the TV deal thus far? Now a key in roster spending.
Braves are like the KKK.................... Uggla, Upton, and Upton... The Strikeout boys.
