What the Freddie Freeman contract could look like

It’s the number one question on every Atlanta Braves fan’s mind…

Will they re-sign Freddie Freeman?

To the surprise of absolutely no one, it’s the one question I’ve fielded the most. And that’s been going on for a while now.

So, at the risk of opening myself up to a line of thought and an entire writing exercise that may or may not age well, let me just start by saying that I do believe the Braves will re-sign Freddie Freeman.

Allow me to qualify that with a rather obvious statement:

The Braves need to re-sign Freddie Freeman.

For whatever reasons, the club was unable to come to terms with its star first baseman before he hit the free-agent market. Now that Freeman can speak with any and all interested teams, the negotiations have changed. But I wouldn’t say it’s radically different than what the two sides were facing over the past year or more in discussions.
