5-at-10: Braves next big star, UK's big man's big-dollar week, "Better Call Saul" thoughts

Braves next star?

Yes, it's one game. But wow, Vaughn Grissom sure looks the part of star right?

In his first MLB game, Grissom was a key part of Atlanta's 8-4 win over Boston. And his presence left me with three big-picture questions for these Braves.

First, can they play Boston every weekend, because dear Lord, the Red Sox could darn from now until February and not patch all the holes in that pitching staff. Second, man, how well is Alex Anthopoulos running this Braves franchise?

Seriously, the emotion caused some consternation about the Freeman deal, and maybe signing Marcel Ozuna to multiple years will be a C-minus deal in the long run, but with all the team-friendly deals in place, look at the skill sets of the three rookies now playing meaningful roles for a playoff contender.
