Braves News: New uniform leaks, top managers in franchise history, more
By Eric Cole
We are firmly in the dead period of the offseason now as we eagerly await news on who the Atlanta Braves will be bringing into camp for spring training. The vast majority of offseason moves are essentially done and we will have to just see if what the Braves have done so far will be enough to snag at least another division title.
While it has been quiet on the Braves front of late beyond the Braves’ IFA class, we did get a bit of news yesterday. Sportslogo.net reported on some leaks regarding the Braves’ upcoming City Connect uniforms. It looks like the uniforms will pay tribute to the uniforms from the 1970’s and early 1980’s which are very popular amongst Braves fans.

Our ongoing look at the top managers in Braves franchise history rolled on yesterday with a look at George Stallings. Stallings was another early Braves manager who happened to oversee a remarkable turnaround for the team in 1914. He was also a pioneer of platooning players based on pitching matchups.
The St. Louis Cardinals’ rotation is very much in flux after the 2023 season, so it makes a certain amount of sense for them to be exploring the trade market for options that could help them in the short and long-term. According to reports from yesterday, they seem to be one of the teams engaged with the Marlins on a potential trade for Pablo Lopez. Lopez is a popular target at the moment around the league, but the Cardinals definitely have the prospects to make a deal happen.
Speaking of the Marlins, Brian Anderson got off to a strong start to his career in Miami (he always seemed to give the Braves fits), but he had a pretty rough 2022 season that included some injury issues. It looks like he has a new team as it was reported that he agreed to a deal with the Milwaukee Brewers pending a physical.
