I like that the Braves have been active this offseason. That hardly ever happens. But I’m still quite skeptical.
Our starting pitching is strong, and getting stronger everyday with young talent. Our bullpen is THE BEST in baseball with Craig Kimbrel anchoring the 9th inning.
But I don’t yet trust our hitting. Yes, the Upton brothers, B.J. and Justin, are nice additions. But they fit into the same category as Jason Heyward and Freddie Freeman – dynamite potential, but show it to me already.
2013 is going to be an exciting year for the Atlanta Braves, I think. And most of all, I’m really looking forward to seeing them crush the Nats.
Here is the Braves roster for 2013 in case you want to take a look.
