How do you stay on top?

Continuing today’s discussion of the National League Eastern Division, we focus on the Atlanta Braves.

***You woke up today as GM of the Braves. You find yourself in first place with an 83-67 record, 6.5 games ahead of the Philadelphia Phillies.

***You’re not dreaming, you really are in charge of a first-place team with a young talent core in place. So, how do you stay on top? Who do you commit to long-term? Acuna and Albies obviously, but who else?

***You have a deep farm system. Who do you see as the guy to rely on, and who do you see more as trade fodder to bait other teams?

***Do you keep Brian Snitker as manager? If not, who do you bring in?
