Braves Mailbag: Freddie Freeman extension, Bullpen, Kyle Wright and more

Thank you to everyone that submitted questions for this week’s mailbag. We will do one more of these the final week of the regular season and probably another for the playoffs. There are always fun. Let’s get to it!

Is it that the organization can’t afford Freddie Freeman or that they think they don’t need to retain him or that they feel he wont sign with another team?

I don’t think it is any of that, really. I do think that it was a perfect storm with the pandemic and that forcing the Braves to reduce payroll coming into the 2021 season.
