The Braves

Posted on: March 17, 2008 12:04 am
The Braves season is looking a promising one to me. I am really hoping Tom Glavine, John Smoltz, and Tim Hudson can all get 15+ wins. That is what we didn't have last year, 3 consistent pitchers. Hopefully, Mike Hampton can stay off the Disabled List. If he can, I am guessing he will have a decent season. I think Jajr Jurrjens will be our 5th pitcher, him or Buddy Carlyle. I hope Rafael Soriano is everything he is hyped up to be. I am also hoping Yunel Escobar can maintain a .320+ average. I hope Kelly Johnson can be a consistent 2B and improve his defense from last year. I hope Chipper Jones doesn't get hampered by hamstring injuries and once again put up MVP numbers. I hope Mark Teixeira can finish off like he did last year with the Braves. I hope Jeff Francoeur and Brian McCann keep improving. In my honest opinion, if the Braves put everything together I can see them going to the World Series.

Jurrjens did look really good in his first start. Hopefully Hampton plays good tonight.

jurrjens has been looking GREAT. if he's half this good during the rest of the season, the postseason looks very good.
