    Track the Awesome Braves (Week 1)

    Sucks I didn't get to start this before the game, but I was at work.


    The Braves looked really good today, and the Nats did not. I know it's early but Chipper appears to be healthy, Heyward is a beast, and the world is round.


    GO BRAVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Always great to start the year with a W.

    I've seen a lot of chatter lately that the Braves are going to win the East. That talk surprises me. I know the Phils are banged up, but then again they were last year too.

    Braves have a really good under the radar team. The pitching depth is unreal and the batting is pretty solid as well.

    I hope you don't plan on that lasting.

    I do actually, but I see the Braves using Chipper 5 days a week and him getting more rest than usual. It'll help keep him healthier in the long haul of the season.

    It sounds like Lowe picked up where he left off last year. I was able to pick up McLouth pretty cheap in my fantasy draft this year. I'm expecting a bounce back year for him, as I'm sure the Braves are as well.

    Glad the Braves got off to a good start. They are solid everywhere. No big weakness like most teams have. Heyward getting out of the gates again!

    Heyward hit a home run in his first AB of the season for the second straight year.

    Braves let me down today. Hanson was by far the better pitcher going into the game but didn't have the stuff to beat the Nationals. Werth and Ankiel had solid days for the Nats while Uggla hit his first homerun for the Braves.


    I sure hope Hanson gets on track because he struggled a lot last year as well. Hopefully it's just some rust and all will be fine.
