Fanpost Friday: Which Braves should win awards this year? Which ones will?

Fanpost Friday: Which Braves should win awards this year? Which ones will?

Perhaps, at last, leaguewide recognition? It’s mid-August. The season’s not nearly over, but the end-of-season picture is becoming somewhat clearer. That, and Nolan Arenado is in town. So, that got me thinking — which Braves are going to come down with hardware this year? You tell me, and tell me why. Freddie Freeman seems like a good case to get MVP votes, and the Rookie of the Year debate has been going on. But, those aren’t the only awards. What will it take for a Braves pitcher to win a Cy Young this year? There’s an award for closers, right — can A.J. Minter get it? Silver...

Plus, all your Thursday Fish links Judge for yourself: #Marlins couldn't get Acuna to not hit a home run so they decided to throw it at him. pic.twitter.com/8k3ZLWkaVB— MLB Memes (@MLBMeme) August 16, 2018 I am not sure there was a game last night, and if there was, it seems to have only lasted one pitch. Braves phenom Ronald Acuña did not lead off his fourth straight game with a home run because Jose Ureña drilled the rookie with the first pitch of the game, and all hell broke loose. Freddie Freeman wasn’t having it, and neither was twitter. Actor Michael Kelly, apparently...

Five players that have struggled that the Braves will need for their playoff push

The Atlanta Braves are scorching hot right now. However, they aren’t even playing their best baseball right now. Here are some players that need to up their games for them to get there. Make no mistake, the Atlanta Braves are playing incredibly well right now. They just demolished the Marlins in a four game sweep and have seized control of the top spot in the division with a strong push over the last couple of weeks buoyed by better pitching and an offense lead by Ronald Acuna Jr., Freddie Freeman, and Nick Markakis that looks downright scary. There are a lot of things to like about this...

The Braves have something pretty cool in progress.  If these players get bring it to the finish, it will be something rare indeed.

What should the Braves do about Dansby Swanson?

What should the Braves do about Dansby Swanson?

The Atlanta Braves’ shortstop hasn’t had a good year, but it hasn’t exactly been bad, either. What should the team do? The Braves are set at a lot of roster spots for a long time. Ronald Acuna Jr., Ozzie Albies, Freddie Freeman, Mike Foltynewicz, Johan Camargo, and Sean Newcomb are all under team control for the foreseeable future and all have shown that they can be productive major leaguers. However, one name that is under team control for awhile but whose future with the club seems far less certain is shortstop Dansby Swanson. Swanson doesn’t hit arbitration until 2020 and...

The Braves shed middling arms for a fairly big bat. That’s a win

Adam Duvall is a hitter. He’s in the majors because he can smack the more-than-occasional home run. He can play first base, but the Atlanta Braves have Freddie Freeman there. General manager Alex Anthopoulos told reporters late Monday that Duvall’s job description here will be to play left field against left-handed pitching, with Ronald Acuna moving from left to center and Ender Inciarte, who has had a difficult year, taking a seat.
