frandog is on a distinguished road
Default BRAVES are winners

The reason the fans don't come to the divisional series is because it is like a regular season game to them. 12 straight division rings, 5 World Series visits and 1 world championship. Not to many other teams can say that, in fact only the Yankees! The Braves will be back next year, Maddux will be gone, but with Smoltz moving back into the starting rotation, it makes the Braves that much better.
1. John Smoltz
2. Russ Ortiz
3. Mike Hampton
4. Paul Byrd
5. Horacio Ramirez ( One of the best up and coming pitchers in the major leagues.)
That equates to about 85 wins from the starters and that is if the bats aren't as good as they were this year!
