Dave O’Brien, of The Athletic, joined Dukes and Bell on Tuesday and talked about how the Atlanta Braves might approach the offseason now that the 2018 campaign has ended.

When asked about the possibility of getting  a player like Byrce Harper... 

“If you wanted a Bryce Harper you could do it, it’s just if you want to go spend that money, because you have the money to do it," said O'Brien. "You don’t have any huge salaries except Freddie’s. They could make him an offer, because I don’t know if he gets $35 million a year.”

O’Brien continued on the possibility of Harper joining the Braves.

“Just know this... Freddie Freeman has become good friends with Bryce Harper, and he’s been campaigning for him to come here and join the Braves," said O'Brien. "And I could see him fitting in here.”
