    Cody Allen to Angels.
    So much for my prediction of Gray, Allen to Atlanta this month.

    I'm hoping now that the Braves bite the bullet and trade for Haniger. Give up a package that consists of Tehran, Allard, Muller, Waters/Pache, and Didder. Or you can give up Newcomb instead of Tehran and take Didder or Muller out of the trade. Haniger is worth it, the farm system will still be top 5 in baseball, and the Braves will have enough money to go out and either sign Keuchel or trade for Gray and sign Kimbrel.

    Reds are negotiating to extend Sonny Gray, as that is the final roadblock in a deal with the Yankees....sending their #6, #7 prospects, plus a draft pick. You might think too high a price, but remember his road ERA was 3.21 in 2018. Not everybody can pitch in the Bronx Bombing Palace.

    Braves high on acquiring David Peralta from the Snakes. Stay tuned.

    Inside source(friend works for them). If I tell who, I’ll probably get “bat-terd,” and then banned from future scoops.

    Just because the G.M. has a Skype or Conference Call, doesn’t mean anything will get done. Not sure if they want Touki back or another top hurler? Certainly it will take two or maybe three prospects.

    I would give up something like Gohara and Pache/Waters for him. If they want to throw in a reliever then I would add another pitcher like Muller or Wentz.

    MLB Trade Rumors: Joc Pederson, LH OF from Dodgers has two controllable years left.

    What do you think of FA, Derek Dietrich(played at G.T.)? He’s a versatile IF/OF who bats Lefty, no compensation to the Fish? If we don’t land Haniger, Castellanos, Peralta, Pollock or Markakis.

    Baseball America will release its annual prospects list on Wednesday and the Atlanta Braves will be well represented with eight prospects in the Top 100. We won’t know which prospects or what the order will look like until Wednesday but we can speculate for now.

    The Braves had 9 prospects in Baseball America’s final Top 100 list for 2018 so it is going to be interesting to see what the first 2019 list looks like. Here is how things stood at the end of last season:

    No. 17 Mike Soroka

    No. 35 Ian Anderson

    No. 37 Austin Riley

    No. 38 Kyle Wright

    No. 62 Luiz Gohara

    No. 84 Cristian Pache

    No. 90 Drew Waters

    No. 98 Touki Toussaint

    No. 100 Bryse Wilson

    Soroka, Anderson, Riley and Wright should once again be positioned in the Top 50.

    Pache, Waters and Toussaint could all make significant jumps up the list. Pache is one of the best defensive outfielders in the game while Waters was impressive at Rome before ending the season in High-A. Toussaint made it all the way to the majors last season and was part of Atlanta's postseason roster.

    Baseball America will release the entire list on Wednesday.

    I predicted we would resign him last week. That’s getting you the news in psychic fashion. TIC!

    B.A. top 101-
    Here are the Braves:
    No. 29 - Ian Anderson - RHP
    No. 30 - Austin Riley - 3B
    No. 53 - Mike Soroka - RHP
    No. 58 - Kyle Wright - RHP
    No. 60 - Bryse Wilson - RHP
    No. 62 - Cristian Pache - OF
    No. 65 - Drew Waters - OF
    No. 70 - Touki Toussaint - RHP

    Markakis took less $ and terms on the length, to stay with Atlanta. Plan is not to wear him out this year, with 162 games. More rest for a stronger second half.

    Not likely a Braves need...
    • Shortstop Yolbert Sanchez, who defected from Cuba, is cleared to sign with any team starting February 5. (Eric Longenhagen, Kiley McDaniel, Fangraphs)

    I'm wondering who the trade is for that is 70% complete. Joc Pederson has been thrown around, but that makes little sense now with the Kakes signing unless we want a back up CF/4th OF other than Duvall. I'm hoping it's either for Realmuto or Hunter Renfroe of the Padres. Get either one of them and we would still have money to sign either Kimbrel or Keuchel.

    Thought it is/was Peralta, per my source. Probably not going to happen, now.

    Dodgers are signing AJ Pollock.

    Have you heard anything about Lucas Duda this winter?

    I read an article after the signing of Kakes where AA said they were still trying to complete that trade.

    I haven't heard anything on Duda which is very surprising. He's not a flashy player, but as a starter, he would give you .250 with 20 HR. I would love for the Braves to re-sign him and have a bench of Duda, McCann/Flowers, Camargo, Culberson, and Duvall. That's a solid and deep bench.

    Austin Riley is expected to take up the OF this Spring in games. Might be like Acuña last year, coming up late to allow 6 years before FA, or closer to the middle of this season?
