2014 over/unders: Atlanta Braves
It's time for another round of over/unders as we preview the Atlanta Braves' season. Is this the year they finally get over the hump and win a postseason series?
Another team preview, another round of over/unders. What's this, exactly? Here's a reminder:
As part of our preview of the 2014 season to come, let's roll out a few "over/unders" for each team. That is, we'll assign a number to 10 different categories that, in their own way, will predict one facet of the season ahead. In turn, you, the loyal commenter, will let us know whether you take the "over" or "under" for each category. Stated another way, will the actual figure be higher or lower than the one we've presented? Remember, we're talking 2014 season and 2014 season only.
