Eyes on the prize: Freeman back after Lasik

Eyes on the prize: Freeman back after Lasik

As Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman made an early arrival to Spring Training on Friday morning, he anxiously looked forward to testing the physical improvements he made during the offseason. A few months of rest allowed him to regain strength in the left wrist he fractured in May 2017, and the Lasik surgery he underwent in October has positioned him to avoid the dry-eye discomfort his contact lenses had occasionally caused on windy days.

Should Acuna start with Braves? He thinks so

Weighing the short- and long-term benefits, it seems quite obvious that the Braves will wait until the latter portion of April to bring Ronald Acuna to the Major League level.

Braves Journal Fantasy Baseball League

Braves Journal Fantasy Baseball League

The Braves Journal Fantasy Baseball League is back and better than ever. Chief Nocahoma is going to be the league commissioner on the Yahoo! platform this year, so stay tuned for league information, draft date, and a more detailed rundown of the league’s format.

More importantly, we need to know who is in. So far, I think I’m reading Edward, Chief, Sean Q, beege, Stu, and myself. So there’s still room for more, but we’ll need to know within the next few days.

Also, for those playing, do you have any preference for the type of leagues, which stats used, specific rules, etc.? No guarantee that it can be implemented, but working the league to the players’ wishes would be great.

Going forward, you should expect the draft to be on a weekend evening, so be flexible, please, for the date that works best for the most players.

Thanks!
