Of course he will perform just as well against Bama, UGa, and the other SEC defenses because we know the O&W game is a good indication.

And YOU KNOW he won't?

It's pathetic how they have ruined this org.  The Braves used to have a huge nation-wide fan base (probably still do, to some respect), and now they can't even raise decent money from TV revenue.  Pitiful - what a Major League "Foul" up.

The AOL/TW ownership group negotiated that deal right before they sold the team and skipped town. They're the gift that keeps on giving.

BTW, if you're wondering why the Braves are having to pinch every penny, here's some light reading that goes a long way towards explaining why:

https://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/estimated-tv-revenues-for-all-30-mlb-teams/

They're locked into one of the worst TV deals in baseball for another 10 years. And every team currently behind them has a deal that is expiring in the next couple years, so the Braves will likely be dead last when those teams ink their new deals.

THIS is the major reason why they built a new ballpark in a swankier part of town that is surrounded by condos and retail (all of which the Braves own). They had to find an alternate revenue stream.

Why did they send him down to begin with? I'm sure he was just as good a month ago. Probably due to contract reasons. Hope he is as good as advertised. I think he will be.

It was contract reasons. Now they have an extra year of team control before he becomes a free agent after the 2024 season. It makes sense for a team not expected to contend now. And if he performs as expected, the Braves will NOT be able to afford to re-sign him then barring a change in ownership or a major financial windfall. Maximize his time in Atlanta, and get the most out of him while you can.

For the most part Gitmo did a good job in the Spring game.
