The Braves can ill afford a problem with the top three rotation spots, as the bottom two look suspect at this point. Still, you really can’t campare Woods’ velocity from 2013 as a downer yet as he didn’t pitch that much, and last year he was better than his record showed while throwing 89mph. Also Wood is a guy that has to hit his spots and he’s only had two starts so far. He’s had his ups and downs, so I wouldn’t push the pannic button yet.

He does know what he is doing. This is exciting and we all know they will go through their ups and downs. This team has that spark they haven’t had in awhile. Heres hopes to cracking this years playoffs. Chop Chop!

The Yankees never traded Rivera. Yes, it’s great to be rid of Bad Joke Upton. However, the wrong sacrifice was made.

This is the most ignorant, senseless, uninformed article I’ve ever read here. Either tell me you are yet 20 years old, or this is just bait to draw comments and I will let it slide. Otherwise you should be covering curling and leave baseball to the adults.

Now you are seeing the cost of having inept Wren as the GM. This was predictable. So you had rather pay 40 plus million dollars for a one inning pitcher (and closers often have short careers) and keep Melvin’s stupid contract rather than free up the money, get rid of deadwood Upton and get a bevy of young talent in return? That would be stupid. I’ll miss watchng Kimbrel, but if you’re going to rebuild then rebuild and don’t fool around about it. Everything Hart has done has been brilliant and necessary considering the shape the Braves were in. All “Stupid” Hart has done is clean up the mess, brought back our minor league system from last to a top ten position, gotten rid of Upton and Uggla and gotten talent in return, brought in two proven closers in place of one, and likely cut our rally killing strikeouts in half by going from free swinging glory seeking idiots to contact hitters. If you’re a baseball fan then you had better have patience. Braves fans have been spoiled. Wren screwed up, so now it’s our turn to sit a couple years and watch a rebuild. Thankfully we have the right man at the helm with some guts to do it.

Our pitching staff is looking to be tops in the league for some time to come. Maybe not this year, but when our minors come up we’re looking at great talent.

I Have “some” optimism for this year. I’m interested in seeing the change from bash baseball to fundamental baseball. We’ll score more runs than last year, and our pitching is always stellar.

Just a thought.

I do hate to lose Kimbrel but at the cost of freeing up lots of $$$ to move Melvin Upton Jr. makes is sweet…

It was unlikely that we would make the playoffs this year whether we had Kimbrel or not. If a team is going to suck, a great closer has no use. Sometimes you have to make moves that aren’t going to be popular, but they are the right moves in the long run. These are the kinds of moves that set you up for another 14 straight division titles. Even Chipper Jones supported this move. We also have no BJ and more money. You should never spend money on a BJ.
