Braves 'ready to go'

Posted on: December 10, 2010 4:14 pm
You know those annoying people who already have their Christmas shopping done? Frank Wren is the baseball equivalent.

While all the other general managers are scrambling to figure out what their teams are going to look like next opening day, Wren on Friday declared the Braves pretty much a finished product.

"I think from a team and roster perspective, we're ready to go," Wren told at a news conference introducing reliever George Sherrill. "We'll probably make some small tweaks, but I wouldn't expect anything real big."

-- David Andriesen

Braves 'ready to go'

I think they will be fine. Philly is a bit weaker this year. Pitching will be okay. I am a bit disappointed that they saw fit to let Matt Diaz go, though. He was one of their most steady offensive producers over the past 2-3 years. Freeman will be a good one, and I don't foresee a sophomore slump for Heyward. He is much too disciplined, hardworking and level-headed to get into a very prolonged slump. The kids are gonna be alright!

Braves 'ready to go'

KCrebel: The Phillies are no longer a huge threat, nor do they scare anyone hardly anymore. If we came up only a handful of games short without Chipper and bunch of utility players playing what do you think were going to do with Dan Uggla's 30 hr power bat in our lineup? I still consider the Braves the front runner to win the NL East as does alot of sports writers i've seen. Only time will tell though. I know im ready for Spring Training to get here!Cool

Braves 'ready to go'

Finished product.......they better hold Chipper holds up for 140+ games and they sign Uggla to extension.  Their key will be the young studs in the bullpen and if Hudson can repeat awesome year!   The Braves success/failure lies w/ pitching, period!  They really need McLouth to come back strong and Freeman to step up to give them a chance vs. Phillies.  This is year Hanson breaks thru and become top 10 and maybe even top 5 starter in NL.  Gonzo only issues will be managing health and back-end of bullpen.  adding Linebrink was smart!
