LAS VEGAS — The story is all too frequent. Individuals fly into Las Vegas, full of hope and power, and all too prepared to throw warning to the wind. They go away somewhat poorer, somewhat sicker and with a nagging query over what simply occurred.
Or, in the case of baseball’s winter meetings, what did not occur. This can be a little bit of a head tornado for the syllogists of the world, however there have been numerous issues that did not occur at the winter meetings.
With that in thoughts, let’s take a tour of the supervisor interviews carried out in the media room at Mandalay Bay over three days earlier this week. In each occasion, the supervisor was requested about some want his membership nonetheless has when wanting forward at the 2019 season. Since few of these wants have been addressed in Las Vegas, I’ll supply a pleasant suggestion for each membership.
Brian Snitker says: “I would really like [free agents Evan Gattis and Matt Adams]. All that type of stuff goes to be up to [GM] Alex [Anthopoulos] as he rounds out this team and issues like that. I feel the world of each of these guys.”
The transfer: Gattis and Adams are former Braves mashers and both or each would give Atlanta a much-needed bench element. Neither is mostly a Nationwide League participant at this level, particularly for a team with an on a regular basis first baseman like Freddie Freeman. So maybe a greater focus for now could be to fill the opening of a nook outfielder, maybe by bringing again free agent Nick Markakis.
