The Braves are the better team and need to keep winning as they inch closer towards a division title. However, Anderson has pitched just twice since July 12. Rogers has also been one of the best pitchers in the NL this season and has consistently been in the running for rookie of the year. This price is nuts if we’re being honest. Give me the Marlins and big plus money.
