The Braves have led fans to believe that they are developing "prospects", and plan on adding "pieces" so that 2017 will be the year we return to prominence. After suffering thru the past couple seasons, I have come to some conclusions- they are lying. Trading proven ML ballplayers for prospects is stupid- who wants a "maybe" over a proven player? From what I've read, our "top" pitching prospects are doing poorly in the minors- for the most part. We have no "hitting prospects" anywhere near ready in the minors. Liberty Media is not going to invest $ to sign proven ML calibur ballplayers. 2017 may be better than this season, but that is not any great accomplishment. In short, the future is bleak. By the way (I do believe Snitker has done a decent job)- can anybody please explain why Aybar keeps playing while much better players like Beckham, Peterson, and D'Arnaud sit?

2017 will not be a competitive season. It will be better than this season, but I think we're looking at 2018 as a WC possibility and 2019 as being back in contention for division titles. This is how a rebuild is done. "Prospects" are the future of the organization and in having such a large stockpile of them, it allows more than a few to be duds and the system will still work. Have faith, or switch to another team.

Didn't the Pirates try this "prospect" rebuilding plan for about 20 consecutive losing seasons. I've been a Braves fan since 1969- switching to another team just because I'm critical of the current management is a silly suggestion. Can you honestly say that you are seeing "the plan" working?

I am seeing it working. I've been following the minors pretty heavily and I am very happy with what I see down there. Many of our pitching prospects are doing well (Newcomb, Ellis, Touki, etc). Swanson and Albies are lighting up AA (which normally is the best place for hitters to develop). And out A-level and Rookie ball teams are astonishing.


Many of our pitching prospects will be dealt for positional players down the road. We just have to be patient.
