    Rf- Markakis
    Cf- Maybin with EYJR getting some time
    LF- A platoon of Gomes and Kelly Johnson

    Outside of Freeman and Markakis they really have no bats that will scare the opposition. Chris Johnson and Simmons are the next best hitters.

    I think I heard they have 4 rookies on their roster and 14 players that have never worn a Braves uniform.

    One spot that doesn't look too bad is the starting pitching with Cahill, Miller, Teheran, Stultz and Wood.

    Think we could unload Bruce/Votto/Phillips on them?

    Beginning to wonder if it says more about Miami than Atlanta. Weren't the Marlins considered something of a contender for the wild card?

    Glad the Braves have had a nice start. Maybe they can avoid being historically bad like I feared they might.

    There is something ironic about how none of us thought they'd ever need a closer and they've had three save chances already.

    5-0.

    I still don't think the Braves will be all that good this year, but it's been a fun start.
