Well, I guess all those questions about whether the SEC is overrated will be settled for at least three weeks. January is such a cruelly long month.

Anyway, the Braves and Brian McCann have agreed that they won’t talk about an extension until after the season is over. That means that one of two things will probably happen: 1) he will play well, and price himself out of our price range, or 2) he will play badly, and we will not want to bring him back on a multiyear deal. We knew that before this was announced. But still. I’ll miss him.

We don’t have a lot of content for the next month and a half. Anyone who wants to write, please get in touch.
