Poor Wood.

Wood showed a lot of mental toughness this season. I think he learned a lot this season. That as a pitcher all you can do is your job and as long as you do you can't let the final results have a positive or negative effect on your performance. It would have been real easy for a young pitcher to pitch as well as he has this season and keep getting losses hung on his record and get frustrated by it. But Woody hasn't done that. It's really encouraging. Reminds me of Tom Glavine in that way.

He's my favorite part of this season.

Top #Braves ERAs since 2000

Jurrjens 2.60 ('09)

Maddux 2.62 ('02)

Wood 2.78 ('14)

Hudson 2.83 ('10)

Vazquez 2.87 ('09)

Teheran 2.89 ('14)

Great work by Wood and Teheran this season.

We'll have to wait until the number updates tomorrow but at least check Teheran had the 2nd lowest home ERA by a Braves starter since 1960. The lowest of course belongs to none other than Greg Maddux. But Teheran was 2nd on the list when I last saw it and both Maddux and Teheran's ERA's were under 2.

DOB said from what he's heard he gets the feeling there will be "significant" roster turnover this winter

I just don't know where you'd do that. Obviously CF would be nice. Rest of the field seems pretty set, although you'd like an everyday second baseman to step up.

But you might have to move Justin to get rid of BJ and not eat too much.

Not Braves-related, but Phil Hughes just finished the season with the highest K/BB ratio of all-time. He had 186 strikeouts compared to just 16 walks in 209 2/3rd innings. That's pretty ridiculous.

I heard about that on the Dan Patrick Show this morning. Of course they were jabbing at the Yankees for not keeping him. Lol

Probably a lot of the bench guys. Then you have BJ, Santana, Harang if they dont resign him. Chris Johnson could be shopped as well. The extension to CJ was another odd move by Wren and undeserved IMO.
