(Editor apology: I omitted GM majnun's commentary from the Braves' team preview. My bad- just overlooked it. Fits better in the preview, but here it is).
Here's GM majnun's take on the Braves chances this year:
"The Braves had the best record in baseball last year, so not many changes were needed. The only big weak spot was third base, so a trade was made for Hal Hernandez. Offensively we underperformed last year, so even if the pitching regresses I feel good about our chances for the playoffs."
