Yeah, I agree with Boras overall on this, but the Braves are a weird example. Shouldn’t he be glad that they didn’t go into the tank and trade off Freddie Freeman when they were sub-.500 at the deadline?I think I have kind of decided that for me, the baseball postseason is pretty much meaningless. Sure it'd be nice if the Yankees won, but I just don't think it proves anything except that a team made the postseason and then beat the 3-4 teams they faced.
Also Boras isn't really right about the ATL deadline moves, those teams were trying to save a bit of money because they weren't going anywhere but absolutely no one including the Braves thought those players were difference makers. No one else wanted those players, there was no competition for them which is why ATL didn't have to give up much.
