2nd place is what I am watching, nobody is catching the Nats. We are in 2nd today. The noise I hear about Kemp, Philips, Adams, Garcia, ect. being on the trade block is sickening. 2 of the 4 can drive the ball. With better pitching we are close to the Nats right now, at least in the hunt for 1st place.
Hear they are trotting out Bartolo again this week,too.

Why? We're still building. If moving these guys, who are on short term deals, can help bring in young players that can be long term solutions then it's a net win. You don't like to lose them because they're playing well, but this team isn't really in position to try and "win now." The last time they tried to "win now" it was an unmitigated disaster.

Based on recent history, all we need to do is find an NL West trading partner and things will work out.

Kemp and Phillips I don't see getting moved as the Braves don't really have any ML ready replacements yet. I'm not sure of either one's contract status though. With Freddie not being ready until right at the trade deadline, I'm guessing Adams will finish the season as a Brave, but he will get moved in the off season for sure. They may take a chance and go ahead and trade him and let Jase Peterson play first though, so we'll see. Jaime Garcia makes 3-4 more starts in a Braves uni, tops.

If I were a running the club(clearly I'm not) I'd say see ya bye to Garcia when Freddie Freeman comes back and stick Adams over at third. From what I've seen he's athletic enough to play the hot corner and having freeman, kemp, and Adams back to back to back in the order would be something else. Wishful thinking though Go Braves!!

agree I think Adams would be a bit more nimble than Freddie at 3b. You could bat them back to back to back. Or play Adams in LF Kemp in RF and let Ender get anything not in their lap.
Top of lineup could be Ender, Brandon then murderers row.

I just read this morning that Freddie is open to moving to 3B to allow Adams to stay at 1B.

And they wouldn't get a bucket of used BP balls for Adonis Garcia...

Gotta luv another walk off win for the Braves, especially an extra innings HR to go with 2 earlier HR's.

I am enjoying watching this team play right now. If they can iron out a few things I believe they could have some potential.

If a I had access to it, I expect the Braves' offense would be entertaining to watch like their 8-run 5th-inning in their high scoring close win to take the 4-game series. Glad having the Atlanta offense cranking.

Interesting fine stat. Game radio announcers said the Braves have the most walk off wins in MLB this season.

Good stuff. A few games back, a Braves player hit an HR 342-ft. to left field & another hit an HR 342-ft. to right field, shorter than I thought.

7th - Flowers homered to left (342 feet).

Good having Atlanta keep the winning streak alive at 3 while making progress toward an even 0.500 record trying to climb out of the hole, & beating the Central Division 1st place team in a close game.


Braves Win - Loss Summary:

Home = 19-19

Road = 16-19

Overall = 35-38



Nice having Phillips staying steady at scoring production.

Quote:
1st - Phillips homered to left (394 feet).

No rain in the way for the Braves to collect their 4th win in a row.

Nice having Phillips on a roll with a HR in each of the last 3-games.
