Not Better Than Last Season But Can Be

Joe Patrick joined Robb Tribble and Nick Kayal to talk about the Braves. Big news came out today about the Braves. Alex Anthopoulos was promoted to President of baseball operations as well as GM to 2024. Brian Snitker and his coaching staff signed an extension 2021. Joe said this is not super newsworthy but it does make people feel secure and that it was well deserved. They won 97 games last season and nobody thought they were going to do that.

This brought Nick to ask about this current roster. While the Braves have brought in Ozuna he asked if the team needed more pop from their bats. Joe says "it's a good line up. I don't think it'll be as good as last year." He does say there is a lot of potential and room for growth with the young guys. There's a lost with no Donaldson but Anthopoulos is hoping Ozuna has a career better than his last few seasons. The lineup is enough to get by and they might bring somebody in to help, according to Joe, as they did last season.
