Freddie Freeman Latest Updates 2022: The Braves Are Going to Miss Freddie Freeman

Matt Olson is a great player, but Atlanta made a mistake in choosing an aging curve over the face of its franchise

Fifteen years with the Braves, the last four as a top 10 MVP finisher, Freddie Freeman appears to be worth more to the Dodgers than to the only team he has known

It makes sense only when aging curves guide teams more than the halo effect of signing, developing and keeping a franchise player

Atlanta appeared to pivot away from Freeman, 32, Monday when it sent four young players to Oakland to get first baseman Matt Olson, who is four years younger (and two years away from his own free agency). Olson is as capable a replacement for Freeman as could be had. But he is no Freeman

Maybe there is a grand plan to keep Olson and Freeman, but no such signs have been evident from the Braves. Last year Freeman told friends that if the Braves dawdled with contract offers, he was prepared to return to his roots in Southern California

Atlanta whiffed on the chance to lock up Freeman during the season and after the 2021 World Series title

They reportedly offered Freeman $135 million over five years, which basically took the Paul Goldschmidt contract (five years, $130 million) and added $1 million a year

From an accounting point of view, it might make sense. The Braves are taking two prime years of Olson (with the cost of the traded players attached) rather than assuming the risk of the downside to Freeman’s career—which has not been apparent yet
