The offseason isn’t over, but I’ll be surprised if you see any more major moves by the Braves. FW says as much.
Factoring in the anticipated arbitration raises, the Braves payroll will rise around $5 million.
We know the franchise is $20-to-$25 million richer from the national TV contracts. We hoped that money would go toward payroll. We should have known better.
(To those who’ve noted Rowland’s more pessimistic tone: I’m just complaining about things you’ll be complaining about a year from now.)
