  1. Atlanta confirms. We love Abrams, but with Madrigal, Bichette and Thomas already in the bigs, we make a move for a more consistent offensive threat at 3B. Thanks to my man Hodges for another deal in our bag.
  2. Atlanta Sends: SP Porter Curran (MLB) 100% salary retention Boston Sends: Manel Penetra 3B (A+ Salem) Andrew Dalquist SP (A Greenville) Miguel Romano SP (INT) Porter Curran has been NOTHING but consistently excellent for Atlanta in his tenure, lowering his ERA each year. However, We shortened our rotation to 4 arms in the playoffs in 2021, and Curran never saw the mound. This year, with the addition of Andy Otero (another lefty), we had to stretch our rotation to 6 starters, which ate a bench bat. We had to make a move. Penetra was a HUGE target of ours last year, and though he took a ratings hit from OOTP21 to OOTP22, we are still very bullish on his future.
  3. Atlanta Sends: Ryan Boldt CF, DFA Lucio Baron, SP INT Pitt Sends: Jason Savacool, SP Bristol (R) Atlanta DFA'd Boldt and the Pirates inquired on him. We add a young promising arm that hopefully pans out in a few years. Thanks for the deal Greg.
  4. Atlanta confirms. Buehler should be able to turn his production around in the NL, with a solid defense behind him. Hate to let Rodgers run out the door, but our middle infield depth over the next couple years allows some flexibility and his departure gives Millard Thomas a path to regular at bats. This trade was 3 months in the making, quite literally. Thanks Scott for the persistence and patience
  5. Atlanta confirms. We have some room on the 40 man, and we are trying to find some serviceable bullpen arms. Thanks Vet!
  6. Atlanta Sends: Josh Lowe, CF, Carolina Cincinnati Sends: John Howe, RP, MLB Atlanta is in desperate need of competent LH bullpen pieces, and we believe Howe can be a good piece for us. Lowe looks like a future regular in the OF, but we have some depth, so I am comfortable with the sacrifice
  7. Atlanta sends: Dan Riggs, CF AAA Gwinnett New York sends: Jake From, 3B (R - Pulaski) From is hurt for awhile, but Atlanta is trying to grab as many former college QBs as we can apparently. thanks rheett!
  8. Atlanta confirms. Story didn’t work out in Atlanta, and became replaceable as our captain with Hager’s arrival. thanks Scott.
  9. Atlanta Sends: Brian Matsuz, SP, MLB (fully retained) Yankees send: Cladio Santos, RP AAA Miguel Zambrano, SP INT Matsuz wasnt going to help us compete this year (as we are in ahorrid position) so he heads to the retooling Yanks!
  10. Atlanta sends: James Tate, SP, MLB Byron Buxon, CF, MLB James Serrano, RP, AAA Oakland Sends Taylor Sparks, 3B MLB Tracy Maas, SP MLB Atlanta upgrades at the hot corner offensively and takes a hit in the rotation. We believe Maas will be a serviceable #5.
  11. Atlanta Sends: John Butler, MLB (DL) Boston Sends: Ronald Stanton, 3B, MLB Atlanta's rotation is set for the next few years, so moving a stud arm like Butler's doesnt hurt as bad as it should. We like Stantons potential at the bat, and hope his defense improves a bit. Thanks Brett, welcome home!
  12. Atlanta sends: Matt Manning, RP MLB Arizona Sends, Bo Bauer, SS A Kane County Atlanta sends current arms for future bats. We love Bauer, more than most scouts based on what I have heard, but willing to take the chance.
  13. Atlanta send: Mac Davis, RP, MLB philly sends: Dalton Varsho, C, AA Davis has been great all year, but we ain’t going anywhere fast. Varsho can compete for the starting role in 2021. thanks Jerry!
  14. Atlanta Sends: Travis D'Arnaud, C (MLB) Sonny Gray, SLP (MLB) $3.9m cash (to cover Gray's 2020 salary) CHW Sends: Sloan McBride, LF (AA) Mike King, C (A, Kannapolis) D'Arnaud was set to be the catcher for the 2021 braves, but Story makes his captain status replaceable. McBride and King are dart throws, but ill take a dart throw at this point.
  15. Atlanta approves. Story's versatility is needed on the infield, and we will toss Sanchez in the minors and work to develop him. Harden is a solid defensive catcher, which we need to develop our young arms. Thanks amigo! win one for the NL
