Over his tenure, Alex Anthopoulos has become the king of...

Braves bullpen needs addressing, what are Alex Anthopoulos trade options?

The departure of three of the team’s most productive relievers from the 2020 season — Mark Melancon, Darren O’Day, and Shane Greene — is no excuse; the Braves bullpen shouldn’t be performing this badly in 2021. Entering Thursday, Atlanta’s relief core ranked within the bottom-seven in the MLB in ERA (4.63), walks per nine (4.96 BB/9), and fWAR (0.1). Despite having some team-wide success these last few days, featuring a three-game sweep of the Nationals, it doesn’t appear the bullpen — if left as is — is ever going to operate at the level needed this season.

The Daily Chop: Dansby Swanson walks off Marlins, Alex Anthopoulos interview and more

The Atlanta Braves nearly let another win slip away Thursday but a late two-run rally capped off by a walk-off single by Dansby Swanson that helped them snap a four-game losing streak. The Braves actually carried a 5-4 lead into the ninth but A.J. Minter struggled again and allowed the Marlins to retake the lead. This time however, the Braves mounted their own rally and snapped their losing streak.

Braves: Did Alex Anthopoulos jump the gun with his early signings?

Most people expected this offseason to be painfully slow because of the financial impact from COVID-19. And it has been. Just look at the number of high-quality major-league players that are still free agents. The Braves, however, were the most active team in the early part of free agency, signing Charlie Morton and Drew Smyly before Thanksgiving. Given that both of them settled for one-year deals (Alex Anthopoulos’ speciality), I don’t imagine the front office will ever lose too much sleep over it. But judging by the contracts high-quality pitchers have agreed to since, is it possible Anthopoulos jumped the gun with these two early signings?
