It's been a fun few days for Braves Country as Ronald Acuña Jr. won the National League Rookie of the Year followed by Brian Snitker taking the NL Manager of the Year award.  

We are always looking to improve, get better and Rick and John talked about the biggest needs going into the 2019 season.

Rick wants the Braves to be aggressive with moves in the offseason, specifically going after Red Sox closer Craig Kimbrel. Rick thinks they should give the former Braves pitcher as much money as he wants to come back to Atlanta.  

John disagrees and thinks the Braves should be more focused on getting a legit starting pitcher, but wants the front office to pay top dollar for Washington outfielder Bryce Harper. John thinks Harper brings the power that the Braves need to be more successful next season.

Rick disagress and thinks Harper is overrated, is injury prone, is not a good base runner, but does agree that Harper equals home runs, but thats about it.  

John wants to take a shot at Harper while Rick wants Kimbrel, but both agree that the team should spend whatever amount to get one or the other.
