Welcome to my Q&A!

Should we get Matt weiters why ans why not
bravesnews101
8:28
Definitely. Tyler Flowers can be inconsistent and is a great backup. A catcher like Weiters who can hit 15-20 bombs and is as good as he is defensively is rare. Expect the Braves to sign him sometime soon.

Is Bartolo the goat
bravesnews101
8:28
Of course
Butch
8:29
Can we get Gattis back
bravesnews101
8:30
As much as I like Gattis, the Astros are committed to keeping him until his contract ends.
Noah
8:31
Are we contender and are we gonna trade the goat himself dansby
bravesnews101
8:33
We have very high expectations, so I don't see why we can't contend. And no, Dansby is not a trade candidate. He is way too valuable to let go unless we get someone like Mike Trout or Bryce Harper in return, which is as unlikely as trading Mike Trout for Eric O'Flaherty. His long term potential is way too much to give up.
Noah
8:34
Okay thanks and also who is the top trade candidates and who do u think we can get in return for those players

Nick Markakis and Jaime Garcia. Jaime Garcia is a free agent after this year, and Nick Markakis has lots of trade value. If we trade both, we need some more OF prospects. Trading Markakis will allow the Braves to make room for Mallex Smith, a solid leadoff hitter. Trading Garcia will make room for Sean Newcomb, who seems ready to pitch for Atlanta sometime this year
Butch
8:36
Who will the other outfielders be besides inciarte
bravesnews101
8:37
Markakis and Kemp. I assume we will eventually trade Markakis to make room for Mallex
Noah
8:37
Okay I see them play all the time at Gwinnett I think we have so amazing talent there
bravesnews101
8:38
I live fairly close to their stadium and have seen them play. Hopefully we can get Albies going
Noah
8:39
Yeah Albies gave me a ball there I live close to and we also don't have to many good Catherine down in triple A so idk what they gonna do about the catcher position
bravesnews101
8:41
If we can get Wieters, he will be here for 3 or so years. Then we might give Brett Cumberland a chance. Cumberland was drafted just this year and has good power.
Gabe
8:41
Do you think we are going to win more games than lose
bravesnews101
8:42
Yes. With how we finished winning 50 of our last 90 games, I don't see why we wouldn't contend, especially with the addition of Bartolo, Dickey, and Garcia
Booty
8:42
What is the chances of us getting weiters
bravesnews101
8:42
Very likely.
8:47
Keep asking! I'll answer any questions y'all have!
Booty
8:49
Coolio
bravesnews101

That is not a question
Landen

Now a lot of people are saying that dans will hit 2nd in the line up and I personally he shouldn't until he has shown him self this coming season because now pitchers with his weakness ans he will have to adjust if that makes since..what are your thoughts
bravesnews101
8:52
He would be a solid number 2 hitter for many years. He will probably hit 2nd because he can set many RBI opportunities up for Freddie and Kemp

Do you graph any braves or other teams? If so do you have any tips for someone who's a noob
bravesnews101
8:53
I try to keep up with all of the teams, but I wouldn't be able to keep up an account for all of them. As for a noob, I would say just be patient and stay active.

Do you think we could keep markakis possibly long term, and use Mallex as a trade asset to get something bigger in return?
bravesnews101
8:55
Markakis is aging pretty quickly. Mallex is a young talent that we wouldn't be willing to give up easily. We will probably go after a catching or pitching prospect for Markakis.

Any prospects who you think will break out next season
bravesnews101
8:56
I think Sean Newcomb has a good chance to make a splash this year. Albies may get an opportunity later this year, but first he must prove himself in AAA
8:58
I forgot to mention Rio Ruiz, who will probably contend with Garcia at 3rd for the starting job
Will
8:58
Do you think Jace Peterson is our long term second baseman?
bravesnews101
9:00
Absolutely not. As much as I hate to say it, he's a below average hitter with pretty good defense. Albies should be ready later this year. We also have several other middle infield prospects such as Anfernee Seymour and Travis Demeritte.

This chat is still active until 9:30! Please ask anything!
9:25
5 more minutes to ask anything!!
Will
9:26
do you think we can be wild card contenders?
bravesnews101
9:28
It's probably the most realistic outcome, but we also have a good shot at winning the division. As long as the Nats don't make any big moves, we should be in good shape. I'd be shocked if we don't make the postseason
Will
9:30
Do you think we need anymore bullpen help?
