3 steps you should take thanks to impressive sales figures
The Atlanta Braves are raking in big bucks, which means they’ll be spending big.
In the wake of their World Series Championship, the Atlanta Braves have become a cash cow.
Per Tim Tucker of the Constitution of the Atlanta JournalThe Braves’ quarterly revenue increased 20 percent to $260 million. The Braves are expected to draw more than 3 million people to gate this season, which would be the first time since 2000 that the Braves will again be one of baseball’s biggest spender. It would be like Ted Turner never sold that MLB Franchise…
With the power of a nationwide fan base, plus a great and incredibly profitable battery, the Braves can watch next after moving up to the next tax bracket.
The Braves previously signed Austin Riley on Tuesday for a 10-year, $212 million extension and included $48 million of Raises Iglesias’ salary in the Deadline deal that brought the former Los Angeles Angels closer to Atlanta .
Atlanta Braves: 3 Next Big Steps They Can Afford With Higher Earnings
3. Find a long-term solution for Charlie Morton in the Atlanta starting rotation
With veteran right-hander Charlie Morton turning 39 in November, Braves fans have to be wondering how much is left in the tank for Ole Ground Chuck. Though he’s put in great performances for Atlanta over the past two seasons, he’ll be given a free hand in March. At this point in his career, he may simply decide to retire to spend more time with his family rather than signing with a team not called Atlanta.
But with that elevated payroll and a notable spot quite vacant in the rotation, the Braves have big bucks to spend on some of the top names to come. While Mike Soroka could return to the rotation in 2023, the Braves may want to hurt their biggest rival by signing Jacob deGrom from the New York Mets. His Stetson connection linked him to the Braves.
If deGrom were to leave New York, Atlanta would probably be the likeliest suitor to land him. He hails from the same area of Florida that Braves Country Chipper Jones hails from. A stint at this point in his career may not be in deGrom’s favor, but it can’t be ruled out entirely. Regardless, Atlanta has the money to add a veteran starter to its rotation when Morton retires.
With much of the Braves rotation still on their rookie deals, they can afford to pay the big bucks here.
