3 Moves Atlanta Braves Simply Must Make This Offseason

The Braves saw an early exit in the 2012 playoffs.

If the Atlanta Braves want to make a run at the World Series, there are three moves they must make in the offseason.

Atlanta's center fielder and leadoff hitter Michael Bourn could be moving during the offseason. The Braves will need to find someone to replace his production.

They still need to find a third baseman to fill the void left by Chipper Jones, but the options in free agency are thin.

They Braves don’t need to worry about pitching, however. They picked up the 2013 option for Tim Hudson and Paul Maholm.

They also have Tommy Hanson, Kris Medlen, Mike Minor and Brandon Beachy as starting pitchers.

Atlanta's main concern is finding replacement fielders. Martin Prado seems to be the most likely candidate to fill in at third base. The Braves just need to sign two outfielders during the offseason, and then they will be set.

The Braves are playoff contenders with their current roster. Any signing or trade that the Braves make will instantly make them better and turn them into World Series favorites.
