Everything about Gray is more their style. They love players from "Braves country" and Gray went to Vandy, is from Tennessee. If they were going to go 6-7 years for a starter, it was going to be Nola. I don't think they'd be willing to provide anywhere near the same level of commitment to Monty.mlbtraderumors has Montgomery at 6/$150. they had Nola at the same exact numbers. probably wouldn't take 7 for Montgomery, Nola has the better track record. but haven't seen the Braves give out huge numbers to pitchers that I can recall. think they'd go 6 on Montgomery or go after Gray?
edit: MLBTR has Gray at 4/$90. that seems more the Braves style?
I could of course be wrong. They just gave Reynaldo Lopez 3/30 to be a swing man, I guess? That's what the beat writers are saying. I say this of course with the caveat that I wouldn't trust any of the beat writers for the Atlanta Professional Baseball Club any further than I could throw them.
