Braves news and notes: Payroll increase, Grissom potentially to left field, losing Ron Washington.

Catching up on news from around Braves Country as we get into the offseason.

MLB’s offseason has officially kicked off, with the first event after free agency begins being the General Manager meetings in Scottsdale, AZ. Despite the meetings ending early for medical reasons – there’s a “stomach ailment” going around – we were able to get some news and idea of Atlanta’s offseason plans when GM Alex Anthopoulos addressed the media before the event’s conclusion.

(Editor’s note: Scheduling issues prevented Braves Today from attending the general manager’s meetings – and for our health it may have been for the better – but we’ll be in attendance at the winter meetings. Thanks to the Braves beat for the quotes from Anthopoulos.)
