Even before this whole mess, he wasn't worth the money once MLB decided to not use the DH in the NL. Even with the DH, I'm not sure he was worth the price tag. So he had a few months of good at bats in a shortened season. No reason to bet on him for a whole 162 game season IMO. Just more AA greatness.

Agreed. When I thought the DH was going to be universal, I was all in on re-signing him. Once that was toast there wasn’t a reason to do it. I honestly thought Melancon was a bigger priority but we just didn’t do it. There is a chance that was not AA’s fault and Melancon just did not want to play here again.



My guess is the Braves will make exactly zero trades today.
