Braves have united the Upton brothers on the same team...BJ and younger bro. Justin (via trade) - they now have arguably the most dynamic outfield in baseball - three, 5 tool players in BJ and Justin Upton and Jason Heyward....i think its pretty cool the brothers now play for the same team, and think its highway robbery that all the Braves had to give up was one of their many "aces" from their farm system...cool thing for the Braves and baseball...

Man thats crazy good. When the Cardinals call Taveras up,Holliday,Jay,and Taveras might be able to give that outfield a run for its money.

Great...just when us Mets fans were all settled into hating the Phillies, now we have to switch back to hating the Braves. :angry:

It'll be interesting though; I have a feeling playing together may improve both their games which if so will be scary for the rest of the NL.

Braves have stuck out 18 times in the first two games...yet it made not a lick of difference. This is the best team we've fielded in a long time, and a couple of these guys could be breakout gems (see: Evan Gattis)

Hopefully Venters won't need further surgery and his elbow will be okay...we don't have a weak spot anywhere in the rotation or in the lineup. Hell, even whipping boy Dan Uggla went yard already.
