2008 Season Previews: Atlanta Braves
Sunday, March 30, 2008
Welcome to the 18th of 30 "2008 Team Previews", where I'm - you guessed it! - offering up a little preview of the 2008 season for each of the teams. Nothing super fancy, (I'm not writing books here munecas), just a few notes on what major moves the teams made over the winter and a thought or two on their upcoming season. I'm going in reverse order of 2007 standings, so next up is....

Atlanta Braves

2007 Record: .556 (84-78), 3rd place in NL Central

2006 Record: .488 (79-83), 3rd place in NL Central

Who’s Out: Jose Ascanio (P), Joey Devine (P), Jamie Richmond (P), Willy Aybar (INF), Chase Fontaine (INF), Tyler Yates (P), Andruw Jones (OF)

Who’s In: Tom Glavine (P), Will Ohman (P), Omar Infante (INF), Mark Kotsay (OF), Jeff Ridgway (P), Todd Redmond (P), Ruben Gotay (INF),

Notes: Jayson Stark has made the bold prediction that the Braves will be the WS champs in 2008, and while I have to respectfully disagree, I do concur that this team is dark horse of sorts. This is certainly the best roster they've had since their 2005 post-season bust. Their offense is packed with power-men like Tiexeira, Kotsay, the Chipster, and Francoeur, and let's not forget about the starting pitching: they have Hudson, Glavine, Smoltz, Hampton, and Jair Jurrjens holding down the fort. Most people are looking to the Phillies and Mets to battle it out this year, but I'm putting the Braves miles ahead of the Phillies - the Mets should be far more worried about this team.

Next up: Chicago Cubs

    Not to nit-pick, but the Braves last won the NL East in 2005, so by my reckoning, it hasn’t yet been four years since their last division win.
