I wasn't really on board with getting him in the first place, but I would assume it would start with one of the second tier, b grade guys. He's not going to net any of Baez, Almora or Soler.
Chipper can be a dick. He's awesome. Yicketty.
Sounds great to me.
I only brought it up because you might be able to get him without giving up one of those 3... and like I said, you could build a contender fairly cheaply, and not be stuck with massive longterm contracts. You'd just need to add one more quality pitcher, and you could definitely give the division a run.
I've never been a fan of him, and having met him hasn't really changed my opinion of him either. I hope he has nothing to do with announcing or anything of that nature, unless it's just local Braves coverage that I won't pay attention to.
