Braves trade Vaughn "last out of NLDS" Grissom for Chris "never healthy" Sale. Red Sox are paying $17M of Chris Sale's $27M salary next season. So Braves get a former, former, former ace for $10M. But I don't understand the move for them at all. They need long-term rotation pieces and guys who will get them across the finish line in October. Not regular-season rolls of the dice.

Braves rotation: Strider, Fried, Morton, Sale, Elder (or a young guy)

They retain the deepest offense in the National League, but I don't see how their rotation is better. I don't see how their rotation stays healthy. And I don't see how that rotation wins a tough series in October.

Diamondbacks have had a nice offseason, adding SP Eduardo Rodriguez, 3B Eugenio Suarez and about to add DH Joc Pederson. They beat us despite basically having voids at all those spots.
