    Strasburg has to remain healthy and Gonzalez will have a tough time matching last year even though he's really good. Point being, they have a stronger rotation, but they still have a lot of questions. Our strengths are different and it should make for an exciting run.

    They barely won the division last year, when we had a worse outfield and career low seasons from BMac and Uggla. Despite losing CHipper, this years braves team is far superior to last years.
    Talent wise? yes, but when it comes to production Prado and Bourn were 6 WAR players, it will be hard for J.Upton and BJ Upton to match that kind of value.

    Yeah the outfield was our MVP last year. Justin and BJ have their work cut out for them to match that. But overall, to make up the difference, we need guys like Freeman and Simba to take the next step in their progression.

    Our OF may have been last years MVP, but this year our OF will probably lead the NL in HR's and be the MVP of our team again. There is no doubt this OF hits 70+ HR's, steals over 70 bases, and drive in over 280 runs. That would be just an average season. JUp and JHey are the two I expect to go at it for MVP considerations this year. This OF is going to be special

    That will bring Heyward to his old self? I mean he was great last year but he didn't take the walks he did in 2010 when he was our number 2 hitter for the most part, i think this could change his approach and make him take more walks, i just hope he still hit for enough power, taking into account that he will probably is going to be more selective and less aggresive.

    I see the opening day lineup being:

    Simba
    Heyward
    Jupton
    Freddie
    BJ
    Uggs
    Mac (Yes, I think he'll be ready)
    Francisco
    Huddy (I think they'll give him the opener out of respect)
    ]
