ok the braves need to find out how to win the post season and to do that you need a few things they dont have. they dont need all of this power up and down the lineup like they did this past year.
1# domintating pitcher- they dont have one starting
2# more balance through the lineup-need speed
3#leader- in the lineup
4#spunk- have none play for the division title then always die
ok im going to explain what i think then produce a lineup
javy lopez isnt a good catcher, hes a good hitter, but not a good catcher. they have jonny estrada whos suppost to be great at framing pitches. if they have some extra money they might try going after pudge. first base is another problem.first base by commity hasnt been working, and robert fick left a bad taste in our mouths with that baserunning play. they also have another young rookie firstbaseman named mike hesssman who had a short call up during the season and had 3 hits, 2hrs and a double. second base stick with giles,ss stick with furcal. at third uve got to get rid of vinny, even though he has one of the best gloves for a third baseman, so u put chipper back at third. since chipper left third u put mark derosa in left. now comes the hardest part to beilieve, u have to get rid of andrew jones. he is the best defensive outfielder in the game, no question, and he has a power stick. the thing is it seems like he brings that lacsidasical mood to the braves. the braves need a dominant starter for the playoffs, some like curt schilling or curt schillingest,(or move smoltz back in). gary sheffield i hate to see go but, the braves will be taking a pay cut soon and hes joked in the playoffs the last two years. get some young arms in the bullpen.
ok, u might notice there are alot of rookies, but they will bring some spunk. they also need a leader, but will chipper step up?
