    This was in a Mark Bradley article from Saturday about the Braves following what the Cubs have done, “The Cubs show the Braves that it can be done”:

    “The Cubs bet on young position players and bought their pitching, signing Jon Lester and John Lackey and re-signing Hammel as free agents. Jason McLeod, the Cubs’ VP of scouting, told Baseball Prospectus that his team’s amassing of bats was more because of the luck of the draft than design. Whatever the cause, the effect is that the Cubs’ rebuild looks rather different than the Braves’.”

    I think the Cubs took and the Braves are taking the talent that’s there for the taking. I think Coppy said something to that affect at some point over the last year or so.

    As far as predicting the near future here….there really isn’t any pressure to rush any of the young players in this situation. The new ballpark will draw in fans win or lose. The effect of this is creating even less pressure on the overall organization.

    I can see them being able to finish above .500 in 2019. There will be a few more bats in place by then to go with the improved pitching.

    Anyway, that’s what I predict for the near future.

    Yikes. By 2019, things need to be better than that. If not, I’d say a lot of the prospects, trades and FA signings will not have panned out.

    I think you are being way too optimistic. The jury is out on all this until they can actually build a functioning club. What they have done so far is what they have always done, loaded up on young pitching and hope they pan out enough to win at the ML level or get traded for power bats.

    Miller was Coppy’s best trade. After that I am not going no say he is a Mensa candidate for the rest. In fact on could argue his ego and his belief he can pawn off 19yo for 24 yo ML bats when hitting is the scare resource is foolish.

    Bats are the new hot ticket in the ML not arms. Until Trouts of the world get traded for 19 HS pitchers this is a risky move.

    Personally I think Coppy is a WIP. Hart did all the house cleaning and Coppy (working with Hart) restocked the farm (almost exclusively with arms).

    You buy arms and you draft bats is the new normal.

    Looks like Freeman is going to get those 18 homers y’all didn’t think he’d get.
