The Atlanta Braves are the only team to have taken notice thus far, bringing in R.A. Dickey and Bartolo Colon to strengthen their staff. While Atlanta is winning the offseason right now, that seems unlikely to continue. There is significant talent available on the free-agent market, but it’s also pretty clear this year’s crop is watered down.
