the 7 spot worries the hell out of me.

Glad to see Chipper back in the regular lineup.

Derek Hill said...

I hope Nate has a better year this year. I know his spring was better but I really want him to do well for us.

I'm surprised that Heyward with his 91 walks last season would bat as low as 6. I'd move him up to #2 and let him get some protection from Chipper.

Ummm, I think label above Venters should say LH Closer. Unless, of course, the card posted used a negative image and he just pretended to be LHP because it made it easier to hang out with Wagner last year.

Dangit, gremlins have been messing up my posts again.

Upon second review, I'm wondering why a potential batting champion is leading off and Mclouth second. Anybody interested is flipping those two guys?

I heard Minor was sent back to the Minors. Maybe that means I can catch him pitch when Gwinnett comes through Charlotte later in April.

I think the Braves have a solid line-up. And tonioght on the MLB Network. Sean Casey picked them to win the NL East. And I agree, they will be contenders all year. A good mix of pitching and hitting. So..Go Braves!!!

Chipper batting third? Lets hope that he finds the fountain of youth. The rotation is strong tho, not sure about the east...probably wild card again.

Made it to the Nats - Braves opener today. Weather was terrible, but game was decent. Heyward looks like a beast, though Livan did strike him out with a 65mph changeup. Lowe pitched well. I was rooting for the Nats (I live in the DC area), but it was good to be at a game on opening day.
