    Barves will probably barve but let's all be serious here and admit nobody is beating the red Sox for at least 4 years.

    The best 4 teams are left. No surprises in the DS. The Red Sox are the favorites, but I wouldn’t crown them just yet.

    Yes and no. The best teams won the Division Series. I believe the best four are Boston, Houston, New York and Cleveland. The Dodgers might be better than the Tribe. But, the NL is way behind the AL at the top. This means the hill is not as steep to climb for the Braves.

    Houston is still the vegas odds favorite, I think.

    Dansby does his hair like Machado in order to get us used to seeing Manny at SS next year.

    Hopefully that is an off-season only look

    No surprises here, but we aren't giving markakis a qualifying offer. And referred to the braves as "they" when referring to the future of the club. Would love for him to come back if nobody signs him.

    QO would have been something like $17.5 million. I wouldn't mind if he comes back for about $8 million as a 4th OF. But he's not gonna want to go from playing in 162 games to playing in 80.

    I hope Markakis does not come back. I would be violently opposed to paying him 8M to sit on the bench as a 4th OF when we have lane Adams who can play solid defense and run better and provide an equivocal pinch hit bat. Plus we still have Adam Duvall who is a stronger bat off the bench and plays gold glove level defense. I appreciate Nicks contributions but aside from the first half of this past season he provided nothing offensively.

    I understand not wanting him back but please don't equate Lane Adams and Adam Duvall with Nick Markakis. It's just silly.

    I’m absolutely equating having Markakis on the bench to Lane Adams or Adam duvall. He’ll be be even more worthless off the bench than he was in the second half. Bottom line is, 8M to a bench Markakis is asinine if you have other options with a pulse.

    I vehemently disagree with “I’d love to have him back”; also, are you a middle school chick? Do the emoji votes bother you? I will gladly undo the downvoted if you want.
