Braves, Cubs Swap Sean Newcomb, Jesse Chavez

The Cubs have acquired reliever Sean Newcomb from the Braves for Jesse Chavez and cash, according to announcements from both teams. Atlanta had designated Newcomb for assignment yesterday.

It’s a new landing spot for Newcomb, who has spent the past six seasons in Atlanta. A first-round pick of the Angels in 2014, the left-hander quickly developed into one of the sport’s top pitching prospects. Within a few months, he’d pitched his way onto Baseball America’s Top 100 prospects list. After the 2015 season, the Angels flipped him alongside Chris Ellis to Atlanta for five years of Andrelton Simmons.

Newcomb was a starting pitching prospect at the time, with evaluators holding out hope that his high-octane arsenal could make him a top-of-the-rotation caliber hurler. He remained in that role for his first couple major league seasons, starting 49 of his 50 appearances between 2017-18. Newcomb showed some promise, posting a 4.06 ERA with a solid 23.3% strikeout rate. As he had throughout his time in the minor leagues, though, he struggled to throw strikes. After walking 12% of batters faced through his first couple seasons, the Braves transitioned him to the ’pen in 2019.

Braves’ Ronald Acuña Jr. sheds light on rocky relationship with Freddie Freeman, says he won’t miss him

Braves star outfielder Ronald Acuña Jr. did an Instagram live interview on Wednesday night with Dominican journalist Yancen Pujols in which he addressed Freeman’s departure. According to Pujols, Acuña said that he won’t miss Freeman and that he didn’t speak with him often. He also claimed Freeman had been unkind during his rookie season.

Here’s a snippet of the video, during which Acuña can be heard saying “nada” in response to a question about if they spoke frequently.


Acuña, for his part, has since tweeted a denial in response to a tweet outlining some of his comments.

Atlanta Braves sign closer Kenley Jansen to 1-year, $16 million deal

The Atlanta Braves signed longtime Los Angeles Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen to a one-year, $16 million contract, the team announced Friday.

Jansen, 34, has spent his entire 12-year career in the majors with the Dodgers, helping the franchise win a World Series in 2020. He will now pitch for a team in the Braves that bested Los Angeles in the National League Championship Series the following year.

The right-hander had a bounce-back season in 2021, generating his highest average fastball velocity since 2017 and wielding a cutter that recovered some of the mojo he had lost through the years. He finished the season with a 2.22 ERA and 38 saves.

Atlanta Braves re-sign NLCS MVP Eddie Rosario to two-year, $18 million deal

The Atlanta Braves re-signed outfielder Eddie Rosario to a two-year, $18 million contract, the team announced Wednesday.

The contract includes a team option for the 2024 season.

The Braves acquired Rosario from Cleveland before last season’s trading deadline. He hit .271 with 13 extra-base hits, including seven home runs during the regular season.

Braves acquire Matt Olson from A’s for 4 prospects

Matt Olson is returning home to replace Freddie Freeman as the Braves’ first baseman.

Atlanta acquired Olson from the A’s in exchange for two highly regarded prospects in catcher Shea Langeliers and outfielder Cristian Pache, 2021 first-round Draft pick Ryan Cusick (RHP) and Minor League right-hander Joey Estes.

With the acquisition of Olson, the Braves have seemingly put an end to Freeman’s legendary tenure in Atlanta. The 32-year-old first baseman has been courted by the Dodgers, Yankees, Blue Jays and Rays.

Study: Five years after opening, Cobb County taking economic loss on Truist Park deal

A portion of the study, on page 48, compares sales tax revenue per capita in Cobb and other metro Atlanta counties after the opening of Truist Park in 2017, and finds “Cobb’s growth was less than the rest of Atlanta, which is not consistent with the stadium stimulating additional economic activity in Cobb.”

On page 56, Bradbury compares property values inside the Cumberland Community Improvement District (CID) - a specially designated development zone created around the stadium by the county - to other Community Improvement Districts in neighboring counties.

The data, according to the study, shows that property value growth in the Cumberland zone - even with the benefit of the new stadium - “appears typical among local CIDS” in Fulton, Gwinnett and DeKalb, “which is not indicative of extraordinary growth from the stadium.”

And a few pages later, the study examines general property value growth in the county - which has grown considerably. But, as anyone familiar with the current housing market knows, that’s the case in many places.

The study finds no additional benefit coming from the stadium, given that, “Cobb property value growth since 2013 has been typical among area counties, including Atlanta’s prosperous core of DeKalb, Gwinnett, and Fulton.”

Bradbury told 11Alive that “if there was some growth or economic benefits that were stimulated by the stadium, we should see a deviation from Cobb and the CID from other parts of Atlanta, and that’s something that I couldn’t find.”

What if Tom Seaver had become a Brave?

On Jan. 29, 1966—seven months after Seaver turned down the Dodgers—the Braves picked him in the first round of the secondary January Draft. He went 20th overall this time, not 193rd, and got the deal he wanted.

Atlanta offered the 21-year-old Seaver over $50,000 total—a $40,000 signing bonus, plus $4,000 for his college scholarship and $7,000 if he reached the Major Leagues. Braves general manager John McHale called Seaver “the best pitching prospect on the West Coast.”

On Feb. 24, Seaver signed. The Braves sent Johnny Moore, the same scout who signed Eddie Mathews in 1949, to get the deal done.

Moore told the Fresno Bee, Seaver’s hometown paper: “We’re very high on Tom’s potential. … As far as I’m concerned, there has been only one better deal [with] the free-agent Draft setup in effect since last June. That was the signing of Rick Monday by Kansas City.”

Seaver was assigned to Triple-A Richmond, the club’s International League affiliate. There was even a locker awaiting him at the Braves’ training camp in West Palm Beach, Fla., bearing his name and the No. 65. Knowing what we know now about Seaver, a spot in Atlanta’s rotation wouldn’t have been far away. Moore would have forgotten all about Rick Monday.

That’s when Major League Baseball intervened.

Braves revenue soars to $568M for championship season

The Braves cashed in on a World Series championship season by generating franchise-record revenue.

The team surpassed the half-billion-dollar mark in annual revenue for the first time, bringing in $568 million in 2021, according to full-year financial results disclosed Friday by club owner Liberty Media.

That was up 19% from the previous franchise high of $476 million in pre-pandemic 2019 and up 219% from $178 million in 2020, when a shortened season was played without fans in the stands because of COVID-19.

The Braves posted revenue of $102 million for last year’s fourth quarter, which included their stirring stretch of postseason games, up from $35 million in the corresponding quarter in 2020. The Braves previously had disclosed revenue of $466 million through the first three quarters of 2021.

Braves Holdings’ full-year 2021 operating profit before depreciation and amortization (adjusted OIBDA) – the most common metric, along with revenue, for assessing a pro sports franchise’s economic performance – was $111 million, Liberty Media said. That reflected a strong bounce-back from a pandemic-driven loss of $49 million in 2020.

Industry belief reportedly shifting to Freddie Freeman leaving Atlanta

That point of view may be changing. ESPN’s Buster Olney reports that the view on Freeman from within the industry has shifted and many now think that he will leave the Braves and sign somewhere else in free agency.

So the industry view has shifted; there is a growing belief that Freeman will land somewhere outside of Atlanta because of the standoff in his negotiations. The Braves offered $135 million over five years, sources say, and Freeman is looking for a six-year deal.

“I think [the Braves] will move quickly to settle on an alternative and move on to get past the conversation,” one official said.

Freeman is expected to be one of the first dominoes to fall once the lockout is over. The Braves are expected to act quickly as well. Per the report, one agent said that Freeman’s negotiations became a competition between he and Atlanta’s front office. The Dodgers, Yankees and Blue Jays are teams that have had reported interest in Freeman.

Braves join “metaverse” craze with digital Truist Park

“It’s exciting to create a new way for our fans to connect with our team and their favorite ballpark,” said Derek Schiller, Atlanta Braves President & CEO. “The digital version of Truist Park will offer limitless opportunities to create unique fan engagements in the metaverse and we are proud to be the first team to offer this immersive experience. We look forward to building enhancements along the way which will continue to showcase the innovation of the Braves brand in the digital world.”

Now you may be asking “Why do the Braves feel the need to make a virtual Truist Park at all?” and that would be a very fair question. We are really light on details of what the Braves have planned for Truist Park Online (or whatever they end up calling it) at the moment, but presumably it will be another way to folks to enjoy game day online and one can absolutely expect ways to spend more money on Braves merchandise or forbid something like character skins or NFTs (it hurts me to type that). We are sure there going to be potentially cool features included, but for now we will have to wait and see what The Braves Matrix looks like.

Yankees expected to pursue Freddie Freeman once lockout ends

The New York Yankees are expected to “take a run” at free-agent first baseman Freddie Freeman when Major League Baseball’s owner-imposed lockout is lifted, according to MLB Network’s Jon Heyman. (Teams are not allowed to contact players or agents during the lockout, according to the league’s rules.)

The Yankees’ rumored interest in Freeman is nothing new. Back in November, CBS Sports even mentioned New York as one of five potential landing spots for Freeman if he did the unthinkable and left the Atlanta Braves after winning the World Series last fall. (We should note that we were dismissive of the idea, thinking that the Yankees would instead pursue shortstop Carlos Correa as their big offseason addition.)

While most of the industry has expected Freeman and the Braves to work out their differences and agree to a new contract, it’s notable that the first half of MLB’s offseason came and went without the two sides agreeing to a pact.

Braves, A’s Discussed Matt Olson Prior To Lockout

When — or whether — the Braves will re-sign Freddie Freeman has been one of the most pressing issues on the minds of the Atlanta fan base for the better part of a year, but the 2020 NL MVP entered the current MLB lockout as a free agent with no real indication of progress toward a return to Truist Park on the horizon. The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal writes this morning that there’s obvious incentive for either Freeman or the Braves to act quickly, one way or another, once the lockout finally ends. Most notably, Rosenthal reports that the Braves indeed spoke to the A’s about a potential Matt Olson deal prior to the lockout (as had been previously suggested), adding that the talks should not be written off as simple due diligence.

An early strike by the Braves to acquire Olson would register as nothing short of a stunner. The longstanding belief has been that despite the ostensible lack of traction in talks, Freeman will eventually reach a deal to return to the same team for which he’s played the first dozen seasons of a potential Hall-of-Fame career. It’s been even more widely expected that the A’s will trade Olson, particularly in the wake of comments from GM David Forst that the team will listen to offers on all of its top players (in preparation for a payroll reduction). However, Freeman’s legacy in Atlanta has made the Braves feel like a long shot, at best.

The 27-year-old Olson (28 in March) has been most prominently linked to the Yankees thus far in the offseason, though a good portion of the ink dedicated to that fit has been speculative in nature. The Rangers are among the other clubs to have been tied to Olson on the heels of a career year in Oakland.

When the Braves became the Bees

Back when the Braves belonged to Boston, there was a fleeting period in which the “Braves” name was dropped in an unusual—and ultimately ill-fated—attempt to rescue a sagging squad.

The Braves’ “Miracle” run to a World Series title in 1914 was far off in the rearview mirror, and Boston’s National League team had fallen on tough times, both on the field and in the financials. A drastic and deceitful effort to get butts in the seats by putting a physically deteriorating Babe Ruth in the lineup in 1935 had been a spectacular failure, and the club’s stakeholders had been dissolved by the league after it was determined they didn’t have the money to keep the team afloat.

And so the Boston Braves, under new ownership, tried to change their fate by changing their name.

Here’s the story of the brief, bumbling life of the Boston Bees.

Braves sign Kirby Yates to 2-yr., $8.25 million deal

On Monday, the Braves signed RHP Kirby Yates to a two-year contract worth $8.25 million guaranteed. Yates will make $1 million next season, before earning $6 million in 2023. The deal also includes a $5.75 million club option for 2024 that includes a $1.25 million buyout. Yates also agreed to donate 1% of his earnings in each year of his deal to the Atlanta Braves Foundation.

Yates, 34, spent last season with Toronto, but did not pitch for the Blue Jays after undergoing Tommy John surgery for his right elbow on March 24. He also had the same operation in 2006.

Moore: Age is just a number for Niekro and Moyer

Phil Niekro: The sparks is still there!

“Oh, yeah. I threw my last [Major League] pitch when I was 48, but I could have gone another year or two,” Niekro said, recalling his final season in 1987. It began with the Cleveland Indians, but he was traded near the end of the season to the pennant-hopeful Toronto Blue Jays.

After two rough starts, then-Blue Jays general manager Pat Gillick released Niekro and told Toronto reporters that he thought Niekro’s career was over.

“Since I have total respect for [Gillick], and also out of fairness to myself, I just took his word and decided that maybe he knew more about myself than I did, and that maybe he sees something that I don’t see, so I went by his words,” said Niekro, who made one final start with Atlanta that season. “After I retired, the next Spring Training, I got the fever. Then the next Spring Training after that, I got the fever.”

In fact, Niekro still has the fever.

Said Niekro, chuckling, but only a little, “I still feel like I can get guys out in the big leagues right now. My arm feels as good now as it did when I retired.”

...“I’ll throw some BP down there, so my arm is no problem,” Niekro said. “To stick around a long time, it’s a discipline thing for a player, where you have to stay healthy. You also have to be fortunate, just to spend any time in the big leagues. I’ve got no squabbles about anything. I just kick myself in the butt for not hanging around for another year or two.”

Braves re-sign infielder Jack Wilson

As an old pequod sod in the bar used to say to anybody named Jack…“#### you, Jack, I’m all right!!”

The Atlanta Braves have re-signed veteran infielder Jack Wilson to a one-year deal, the team’s website reports.

Wilson, 34, hit .243 with no homers, 11 RBIs in part-time duty with the Braves and Seattle Mariners in 2011. He was dealt to Atlanta on Aug. 31.

His biggest impact this season might be as a mentor/insurance policy.

Barring another acquisition, the Braves will start rookie Tyler Pastornicky at shortstop on opening day. The 22-year-old hit .314 with seven homers, 45 RBIs and 27 stolen bases between the Class AA and Class AAA levels in 2011, but he never has played in the majors.

BBPro:  Heartburn Hardball - Jack Morris in Motion

Morris, who was the face of the Detroit Tigers’ pitching staff for the entirety of the eighties before spending the early nineties hopping between the Twins, Blue Jays, and Indians, has every right to be thrilled at the news. And the rest of us, especially those who were too young to see him pitch, have every right to ask…why Jack Morris? Why now?

To answer that question, I decide to watch the most famous performance of his career, the game that proved once and for all that he was a true ace and a true winner.

....

The Twins will win 1-0 in the bottom of the 10th, winning the second World Series title in franchise history and solidifying Jack Morris’s place in baseball history.

And when it’s over, I will be more convinced than ever that Jack Morris is not a Hall of Fame pitcher.

Blasts from the Past

With the Hall of Fame results being announced today, we decided to take a trip down memory lane and dig up some old scouting reports from the Baseball America archives on some of the ballot’s notable candidates. . .

8. Barry Larkin, ss, 21, 5-11, 175, R-R
Larkin looked right at home in AA, hitting .267 for Vermont. He didn’t show power (one home run in 255 at-bats), but that will come. The key for him was just getting his feet on the ground, and he was not overpowered by the high level of competition (21 strikeouts in 255 at-bats). He will have good power for a shortstop.

6. Edgar Martinez, 3b, 25, 5-11, 175, R-R
Martinez’s discipline will produce runs. He’s averaged 70 RBIs the last four years. In the field, he’s solid, with good reactions and the soft hands of a middle infielder.

ajc: “Murph” surprised by low Hall of Fame votes, still hopeful

Kicking TBS: Live in Atlanta…with Dale Murphy.

Q: Probably not a lot of 50-something former MVPs can say they’ve been getting into Wilco and other bands, huh?

A: Well it’s been fun, and I think that’s the fun of Twitter – this intersection or cross-section of diverse people and interests, and you connect in ways … it’s been fun. In fact, I did a [online interview] with Peter Moylan, and he was asking me about music I listen to. And he and Chipper [Jones] were wondering who half the bands were that I named…. [Laughter.] I’m going to have a contest on Twitter and say the first hitter that walks up to [to the plate] with Wilco or something like that playing, I’m going to get him [a prize].

Q: OK, let’s change gears a bit. Murph, has this time of year become frustrating for you because of the annual Hall of Fame voting announcement? Or do you still allow yourself to be optimistic about your chances?

A: I’m always kind of optimistic. Not really frustrated, I think because my percentage [of votes] hasn’t really been knocking on the door, you know? I think if it’d been at 60 percent or something for five years, it might be different. I mean, I always try to be optimistic. I know my percentage is pretty low and you need 75. And I’m not really close. So in that way I’m not really frustrated.

To be honest, I thought my percentage would be higher over the years. It hasn’t been high. I tend to feel like I’ll get a bump this year. We’ll see. There’s been some talk about guys that played in the ‘70s and ‘80s, that there might be some revisiting of their careers [by voters], and I have some people that have been supportive. So we’ll see. I appreciate the support and I try to stay optimistic.

The Greatest Animated Sports .GIFs of 2011

32. Cliff Lee declines to run out his own grounder

I’m a firm opponent of the designated hitter rule, because just as I love to watch a punter try to scoop up a bad snap and try to throw it, or see a 7’1” center with no range try to chuck up a last-second three, I love watching pitchers hit.

Never will I come closer to seeing what it would be like if someone with my skill set tried to perform on a professional level. I mean, how nuts is this: in the National League, five to 10 percent of all at-bats are taken by men who, by everyone’s admission, are profoundly bad at it! It’s Dada performance art, and the ubiquity of such comical nonsense—over the course of a game, a season, and the history of baseball—is unrivaled by anything in any other sport.

This GIF features a delightful bonus: the catcher starts jogging to the dugout well before the play ends. It’s beautiful.

Atlanta Braves in trademark dispute with Pixar over “Brave”

While I will not claim to be an expert in trademark law, this feels extremely frivolous on the part of the Braves. To my knowledge (and following a quick search on Google), the New York Mets have never sued either the Metropolitan Museum of Art, commonly referred to as “The Met,” or the Metropolitan Opera House, which is also commonly referred to as “The Met.” And all three of these well-known establishments are based in New York. But now the Atlanta Braves (who, coincidentally, are a major rival of the NY Mets) have not only chosen to go after a globally-known organization, but a globally-known organization that is famous for their lawyers.

They don’t call it the Mickey Mouse Act for nothing.
