4. Marcus Stroman

Give this Atlanta Braves lineup a rotation of Fried, Strider, Nola, Stroman, and either Morton or Elder and this is a World Series team. The problem with this move is obviously the spending you would need to land both Stroman and Nola.

However, if there was ever a time for the Braves to push all their chips to the center of the table, it is while this lineup is in their prime. You have the most complete lineup in the league and a lot of young players who should only get better.

Both Ozzie Albies and Michael Harris stand out as players who could be even better in the 2024 season. This lineup needs more consistent pitching and Nola and Stroman bring just that. Neither player is going to miss a ton of bats, but both are going to be great for long stretches and eat innings.

Stroman clearly is a great fit for this team and is the starter this team was missing at the end of the year. Atlanta doesn't have to swing big and chase Ohtani or one of the league's top free agents. Stroman is in the middle of the road and a great fit, whether or not the team landed Aaron Nola.
