The Braves

The Braves season is looking a promising one to me. I am really hoping Tom Glavine, John Smoltz, and Tim Hudson can all get 15+ wins. That is what we didn't have last year, 3 consistent pitchers. Hopefully, Mike Hampton can stay off the Disabled List. If he can, I am guessing he will have a decent season. I think Jajr Jurrjens will be our 5th pitcher, him or Buddy Carlyle. I hope Rafael Soriano is everything he is hyped up to be. I am also hoping Yunel Escobar can maintain a .320+ average. I hope Kelly Johnson can be a consistent 2B and improve his defense from last year. I hope Chipper Jones doesn't get hampered by hamstring injuries and once again put up MVP numbers. I hope Mark Teixeira can finish off like he did last year with the Braves. I hope Jeff Francoeur and Brian McCann keep improving. In my honest opinion, if the Braves put everything together I can see them going to the World Series.
