Braves To Go All The Way?

The Atlanta Braves have been the most steady team in the National League and are a shoe-in to win their division. The Braves have had the most success as a ball club this year than any other team in major league baseball. This has to do with many factors.

The Braves head coach has made many key moves in association with the lineup, for instance moving a slumping Jason Heyward up to the lead-off position who eventually saw a spike in all of his numbers. Another key player who has shot into major league baseball is Evan Gattis, who wowed the coaches in the spring training and has been on this hot streak for the majority of the season. Chris Johnson, the Braves third baseman, is one of the hottest hitters in the National League. He's in line to win a NL batting title and has helped the braves be as successful as they've been. 

Growing up as a child, I remember the Braves team I worshiped, Marcus Giles, Johnny Estrada, Rafael Furcal, and Chipper Jones. This was the team that inspired me and the year I was born was the last time the Braves have won the world series, 1995.

If things keep going the way they have for the Braves, I see no reason for them not to win it all this year. As a die hard Braves fan, I go into every season hoping for the best. Hopefully this is the year they do it! As long as they keep up the level of play that they've been showing, the sky is the limit. The Atlanta Braves are the most deserving team to win the world series this year!
