Forgot to mention my sleeper the Tigers!!! Go ahead and laugh but they have some great great arms that can fire the ball.  They lack a bat or two but their staff can fire the ball

Randy is a hell of a pitcher but being an O's fan I have to hate him and anything associated with the yankmez!

They have a lot of young players and some more "waiting in the wings" (Buster Posey, etc.) but it's a long season. Their pitching is some of the best in the game right now.... they need sticks. Yesterday their "d" was terrible.

Jason Heyward's going to be stud (if not already) that's for sure.  Thunbs Up

He's 4 for 12 (.333) with two HR's and 5 K's in 3 games so far vs. the Giants.

5-2, I'll take it given current situation and all games have been on the road.  They keep this up, it will be scary.

The yankmees kind of ruined baseball for me, or rather the salary cap and some owners refusal to abide by it!  That and the steriods issue just took all the fun out of watching it!  I do enjoy it everytime the yakmees loose though!

I love baseball. This will be an interesting year for my Braves, with Bobby leaving. There is a good possibility that Leo Mazzone could replace him. The names being mentioned right now are Maddox, Glavine, Smoltz, Mazzone, Lemke, Pendleton. Any of these are great baseball minds, and all are favorable to dominant pitching, timely hitting, and smart base running. Hopefully the braves have enough fuel and motivation to send Bobby away with a memorable season. While the Braves, seem to still suffer a tad from lacking the timely hit. They are now a team that can put runs up in a hurry. If they can keep within a two or three run area, they have a good chance of winning. That wasn't the case last year.

That was a great trade the Braves made with the Tigers that sent Rentiria for Jurrgens what a steal!!!!

Jair Jurrgens is a really good pitcher. He became one of my favorites last year. I call him JJ. The Braves have got one of the best staffs, as far as pitching goes. Several could be the Ace on another team. This should be an interesting season to watch.

Biggest problem for the Braves is the Divison they are in.  The Phill's look so tough. Maybe they can get a wildcard.  But they sure look great for he future.  I love their outfield.  Mclouth will get it going.  He's a ligit 25-25 + guy.

I think that they will do well in their division. They did last year, and are better this year. D Lowe, will have to pull it together, but he starts slow most of the time. Kawakami will be a good one too. The addition of Wagner helped the Braves immensely. Hudson hopefully can stay healthy, and Hanson was pretty good last year too. One big thing is whether or not Chipper can stay healthy, and produce the way he is capable of doing. Snails (Escobar) needs to use his speed more to help out the at bat more this year. There is enough speed on the Braves staff that they need to pressure the pitcher more, and stop swinging as freely as they tend to do, make the pitcher throw strikes, and the opportunities to score runs will increase.

Free swingers ar usually a sign of youth.  Chipper should be a concern.  I hate to say it but his bat has dimminised and so has his glove.  He is a hall of famer but he is on the down side.  To bad he couldn't DH.  I was madwhen the Tigers traded Jurrgens
