I won't be have to trust rebuilding until our organization has gained trust.
Living off the past success with teams that have only been capable of winning division championships is not acceptable to me.

If they want Miller or Teheran, I want Soler and bullpen arm Travis Wood. With Olivera and Soler in the corner OF spots, move Markakis to CF, Bourn would back up CF.

If this trade happened, I'd sign Freese to play 3b, sign SP's Mike Leake and Scott Kazmir.

CF Markakis
SS Aybar
1b Freeman
3b Freese
LF Olivera
AJ Pierzynski
RF Soler
2b Peterson

Bourn, Swisher, Bethancourt, Garcia and Ciriaco bench depth.


Miller/Teheran
Leake
Kazmir
Wisler
Perez/Folty

Im not sure Wood fits into the rebuild.

I would just go after Soler and 1-2 other offensive prospects.

The Cubs and D'backs officially are no longer in it for Miller. Cubs didn't want to part with Soler and D'backs didn't want to with Pollack.

I'm glad Coppy didn't take Baez or Castro. Soler or no trade.

This trade might have expedited the rebuilding process by at least a year.

We already had the best farm system in the majors, and now we add the number 10 and 61 prospects to that, plus a very good outfielder in Inciarte.

I saw on Twitter a few analysts say that this package would be close to getting Jose Fernandez. I love Shelby, but Coppy and Hart have outdone themselves.

will be interesting to see how we try and use Albies, Swanson and Jace. Albies at SS, Swanson at 2B and Jace at 3B could work maybe.

possible roster in a couple years.

1B- Freeman
2B- Swanson
3B-Jace
SS- Albies
LF-Olivera
CF-Smith?
RF-Inciarte
C-?

Teheran
Newcomb
Blair
Allard
Touki

our only holes are at C and lack of power hitting.

Return to Atlanta Braves
