With the bitter taste of disappointment still fresh in the collective mouths of Braves fans everywhere, the end of the 2012 season draws near.
The only thing the Braves can do at this point is look to the future. With the legendary career of Chipper Jones coming to an end, the Braves are looking to the future for the upcoming 2013 season, but also for the organizational depth of their prospects.
After the World Series, the Braves will have many roster decisions to address and must decide which path they will take.
Will they use some of the money freed up from Chipper's retirement on pricey free agents? Will they pull the trigger on a deal that will restructure the dynamic of the clubhouse? Or will they look to address their needs in-house?
When a trade proposal comes across the desk of Frank Wren this offseason, these three prospects should require a king's ransom to pry from the organization.
