Braves opening day lineup.
1. Rafael Furcal - SS
2. Quilvio Veras - 2B
3. Andruw Jones - CF
4. Chipper Jones - 3B
5. B.J. Surhoff - LF
6. Brian Jordan - RF
7. Javy Lopez - C
8. Rico Brogna - 1B
9. Tom Glavine - P
2001 was the year that Furcal only played 79 games because he hurt his shoulder sliding into 2nd base against the Red Sox. 2001 was the year that we couldn't find a first baseman. We started the year with Brogna before trying Wes Helms and Ken Caminiti and finally setting on Julio Franco in September. Here are some more of the amazing Braves of 2001
I won't even go down that list of pitchers. It's pretty bad.

Of course Brian Jordan had 25 homers, Andruw had 34, and Chipper had 38.
I wonder if we'll ever have two guys get 30 in the same season again

It will happen this year. In fact I believe the Braves will have at least 4 guys hit at least 25 and I'm banking on 2 of those to be over 30. The 4 guys I'm talking about is Uggla, B-Mac, Freeman and Heyward.
