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?www.sportstalkatl.com
