Braves announce rotation

I think that the starting rotation is the least of their worries. The bullpen is probably the biggest question mark and then the offense. I just hope that we see a team that becomes totally different in the playoffs, like the rockies a couple of years ago even though they started their run during tyhe regular season.

Braves announce rotation

I would say go with a 3 man rotation with Lowe going on 3 days rest. Dont have to much confidence is Beachy

Braves announce rotation

I hope they explain this to Mike Minor in a way to where his confidence isn't hurt.  He is going to be a very good pitcher for the Braves in the future but honestly he's looked tired the last few starts and Beachy has a fresher arm.
