1.) How many games will the Braves win in the 2014 regular season?

93

2.) Will the Braves have any starting pitchers throw 200 innings or more?

Teheren maybe, but probably not.

3.) Will the Braves have any hitters knock 30 or more home runs?

Two, Justin and Gattis

4.) Will the Braves win the NL East division?

Yes, by 3 games, clinch by 7.

5.) Over/under: Craig Kimbrel: 45 saves?

Under, 42

6.) Over/under: Jason Heyward: 85 runs scored?

If he remains healthy, yes, in fact, over 100

7.) Over/under: Dan Uggla: 120 games played (for the Braves)?

Yes, don't think he gets traded and has been relatively healthy his career

8.) Over/under: Alex Wood: 160 innings pitched?

Under, I think with Floyd, Harang, and Santana, I think he gets moved to the bullpen

9.) Over/under: Andrelton Simmons: 15 home runs?

Even. I think he hits exactly 15.

10.) Over/under: B.J. Upton: .225 batting average?

Over. .237

Over, 82.

13.) Over/under: Aaron Harang: 12 games started (for the Braves)?

Over 16 games

NLCS (defeated by the Dodgers)

I think the offense will be fine and the starting pitching wiil be OK. But Venters, Varvaro, and Walden are going to struggle and the pen will be a revolving door of players coming up from Gwinnett. The Braves will be looking for bullpen help at the trade deadline.

1.) How many games will the Braves win in the 2014 regular season? 89

2.) Will the Braves have any starting pitchers throw 200 innings or more? 2. Teheran and Santana just over 200

3.) Will the Braves have any hitters knock 30 or more home runs? 2. Justin Upton and Evan Gattis. Freeman gives it a run with 28

4.) Will the Braves win the NL East division? No. No chance that they Nat's have a repeat of last year.

5.) Over/under: Craig Kimbrel: 45 saves? Under

6.) Over/under: Jason Heyward: 85 runs scored? If healthy, Over

7.) Over/under: Dan Uggla: 120 games played (for the Braves)? Over. But not by much if LaStella comes up. I think they give him a long look.

8.) Over/under: Alex Wood: 160 innings pitched? Over

9.) Over/under: Andrelton Simmons: 15 home runs? Under

10.) Over/under: B.J. Upton: .225 batting average? Under. After seeing him this afternoon at the futures game, he still looked just as lost with a stikeout and a mile high popout to the catcher 10 feet in front of the plate.

11.) Over/under: Ervin Santana: 25 home runs allowed? Under

12.) Over/under: Chris Johnson: 75 RBI? Push

15.) Do the Braves make the playoffs, and if so how far do they advance? Yes. Win the WC game, but get bounced in the NLDS. Same old Brave's

The pitching has me scared. Not in the regular season. We know what McDowell can do. Postseason has me still worried. I see us winning 95 plus and being East champs again. I hope Julio takes that step to be the ace we desperately need. If we can get him going and have Minor doing what he does I think we will be ok. And I'm excited about Alex Wood. I think he will surprise people in baseball this year
