Much of the same team returning but so many questions and "if" scenarios.
If Heyward gets his swing back
If Chipper stays healthy
If Pastornicky is the future SS
Unfortunately, I question all those. I still think we have a bright future, but I think this years a reality check in terms of the future. If we get even 2 of those 3, we have as good of a chance as any.
I love Chipper, but this needs to be his last year so they can find his replacement in a deep FA outfield.
And JJ is gone before the trade deadline, just have to see what we get back.
Anyway...just glad to get to talk about baseball again.

I think the Braves will finish behind Philadelphia - as much as I hate them and the city, I don't think they'll take too many steps backward this year. This new 2-wild card system basically makes Atlanta a lock for the playoffs IMO. If Uggla has a consistent season at the plate, our offense is going to be pretty good. We have a lot of depth and I am excited about seeing what Pastornicky can do. Alex Gonzalez was atrocious in the batters box... his defense was amazing. That's going to be hard to replace, so I hope Pastornicky is up to it.
Anyway, I'm kinda new to the Braves club, so I look forward to discussing the up coming season with you guys.

Chipper on the season:
“The body is starting to tell me every morning when I wake up that it’s getting close,” he said. “I’m signed through the end of this year. If I play in a certain amount of games, I got an option for next year. I don’t know what next year entails.
“I don’t know if I can make it through this year.”
That doesn't bode well for the Braves at 3B.

And does the J Hey kid have his swing back? Now just waiting on Uggla's power.
