Buyers or Sellers?
Atlanta Braves– Sellers
- W-L: 35-67 (5th NL East)
The Atlanta Braves won’t be huge sellers but they definitely won’t be buyers. Their farm system has gotten great fast. They won’t be moving Freddie Freeman and they won’t be moving Julio Teheran, unless they’re offered a deal that can’t be turned down. They’ll look to bring up prospects across the next couple years, but for now they’ll stand pat. Watch them to trade Nick Markakis.
Miami Marlins – Buyers
- W-L: 55-47 (2nd NL East)
The Marlins may have already fulfilled a need. Rumor has it they have acquired Andrew Cashner from the Padres (Reported by ESPN). The Marlins are staying afloat and are closing in on the top wild card spot. Real postseason waves are being surfed in Miami and the Fish don’t want to stop. They have already acquired Fernando Rodney and they’re still looking for another reliever.
New York Mets – Buyers
- W-L: 53-48 (3rd NL Central)
- W-L: 47-57 (4th NL East)
The Phillies are in a rebuild stage, they’ve done most of the selling already, but players like Jeremy Hellickson are still available. They’re moving forward beyond 2016 and looking to contend for many years to come with a solid youth movement.
Washington Nationals – Buyers
- W-L: 60-42 (1st NL East)
Andrew Miller. That is all that needs to be said here. Jonathan Papelbon is gone after the year ends so get yourself a new closer just in time for the playoffs. Bring a title to Washington DC before the chaos of the 2016 Presidential Election strikes.
