BEST OF MAXIM
The Braves made a one-year, $14.1 million qualifying offer to free agent Brian McCann, assuring they’ll at least receive a compensatory draft pick if the catcher signs with another team.
As expected, McCann was the only one of the Braves’ free agents to receive a qualifying offer before Monday’s 5 p.m. deadline. Free agents have one week to accept or decline the offers; last...
Andrelton Simmons was drafted in the 2nd round of the 2010 amateur draft and made his big league debut in 2012.
With the exciting, though not altogether surprising, announcement that Andrelton Simmons has been awarded a Rawlings Gold Glove as well as named by ESPN 2013′s best defender, we wondered how Simmons stacks up against a former Braves shortstop to which he’s often been...
Brian McCann's future with the Atlanta Braves remains up in the air this offseason, but the franchise took a step toward protecting itself on Monday. The Braves extended a qualifying offer to their longtime catcher, the team announced.
Qualifying offers are worth one year, 14.1 million this offseason.
As an unrestricted free agent, the seven-time All-Star is projected to be...
The Braves have made a $14.1 million qualifying contract offer to catcher Brian McCann for the 2014 season.
General manager Frank Wren said Monday the team will not make a qualifying offer to pitcher Tim Hudson.
The Braves have 2012 rookie Evan Gattis set to take over at catcher next season. The team is not expected to compete aggressively in the free-agent bidding for McCann,...
Despite learning that he won’t be the recipient of a qualifying offer from his hometown Atlanta Braves, right-hander Tim Hudson has received interest from a number of teams during the early stages of free agency this offseason.
Refusing to extend the $14.1 million offer to Hudson, the Braves have made an alternate offer of a one-year deal at a lower salary. With financial details...
The Red Sox are pretty happy with their pitching depth. But, that doesn't mean they're not keeping their options open. Sox GM Ben Cherington said yesterday:
We could certainly envision a scenario where everyone that’s currently under contract is in Fort Myers and in fact, at this point, that’s what I would expect. We’ll see what the offseason brings.

It has recently been announced that the Boston Red Sox would not give Jarrod Saltalamacchia a qualifying offer to return to the team next season, letting him become an free agent. Early this morning Ben Cherrington seems to have set his eyes on a new target to fill the catchers spot, Brian McCann. McCann is a free agent this season...
After being drafted in the first round by the Atlanta Braves in 2003, Jarrod Saltalamacchia's path to the majors was obstructed by fellow catcher Brian McCann.
Now, in the ultimate irony, McCann could replace Saltalamacchia with the Red Sox.
If the Sox decide to move on from Saltalamacchia behind the plate -- and it sure seems as though they're leaning in that direction...
Atlanta Braves pitcher Tim Hudson is drawing a lot of interest so far this off season, despite suffering a gruesome ankle injury last season. Hudson missed the final two months of the season with the fractured ankle but reports say at least ten teams are showing interest him, with the Cleveland Indians and Kansas City Royals showing the most.
The Braves have offered Hudson a one...
