What will Braves spend their $25 million on?

DOB reports:

The Braves’ payroll is likely to rise to about $100 million in 2014, up from approximately $90 million in 2013. That’s right in the middle of the pack of 30 MLB teams. All major league teams will receive about $25 million more annually beginning in 2014 from the new national TV contract.

The Braves will be spending less than half of it on players, A $100 million payroll won’t be middle of the pack for long.



  1. They’ll find someone who will hit worse than Uggla and Upton did in 2013. Hopefully that someone will be a pitcher, but you can never be too sure.

  2. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I personally look forward to years of mediocre baseball brought to us by vanilla, corporate bean counters that is occasionally spiced with “just happy to be here!” playoff appearances followed by a quick exit and all set to a rollicking soundtrack of “Proud to Be an American” and “Thank God I’m a Country Boy.”
