It goes? Freddie Freeman and Atlanta Braves can’t agree on renewal

Without a doubt one of the best players pound for pound of all MLB is Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman who is the reigning MVP of the National League and sure candidate to be considered in voting at the end of the current MLB campaign, which is his last in the contract he has with the Braves and which means he will become a free agent for the following offseason.

The truth is that while Freeman’s desire is to stay longer in Atlanta, according to information from Jon Heyman of the MLB Network, neither the first baseman nor the organization has reached a contract extension agreement at this time, making it very likely that Freddie ends up becoming a free agent at the end of the season.

However, the highest probability is that he will renew with the Atlanta Braves, with Heyman mentioning that he could have a contract comparable to the one that Paul Goldschmidt signed with the St. Louis Cardinals last year, earning $ 150 million for 5 years at age 31. , the same age that Freeman is at the moment, although he can inflate his price even more, since Freddie is a more emblematic and decorated player than Goldschmidt.

Freeman debuted in 2010 and has spent his entire career in Atlanta, having signed an 8-year, $ 135 million contract in 2014 with the Braves, which expires in 2021.

Fernando Tatis Jr., Juan Soto and Ronald Acuña are the future of baseball, Mike Trout is overrated, and the Astros deserved to be taken away from the World Series for cheating. Besides baseball, I also enjoy soccer, football, basketball, and just about any other game that includes a ball or a ball. I am also an amateur musician, penniless gamer and very nerdy.
