Braves: This Freddie Freeman quote should put fans at ease

dkb191009026 stl vs atl

The Braves may be World Series champions, but now all eyes turn to the pending free agency of Freddie Freeman, who officially became an unrestricted free agent yesterday. Both sides have re-iterated for years now that they want to get an extension done, but according to Jon Heyman from a couple of months ago, a gap remains in demands between Freeman and the Braves. We also know a lot can change once a player is courted by nearly every team in the league. There’s certainly a chance the face of the franchise in Atlanta for the last decade could be playing elsewhere next season, but this quote from after their World Series victory should help put Braves fans at ease.

Freeman also once again re-iterated on the broadcast after Game 6 that everyone knows where his heart lies — in Atlanta.

The Braves have a number of decisions to make regarding their 2022 roster. Jorge Soler and Eddie Rosario are also free agents. Joc Pederson and Adam Duvall have mutual options. The Braves would love to have everyone back, but nothing comes before Freeman. He’s the engine that makes this team go, even more so than Ronald Acuña, and the Braves would be fools not to open up the checkbook to bring him back.
