Absolutely. Future Braves HoF'er.

Officially official   

Kakes gets a lot of heat but when its over his Braves career will carry a very solid stat line.

Braves will also activate Acuna on Tuesday if his wrist is still feeling good after taking swings.

Imagine that Kakes will be activated as well if he provides another negative test since it has been exactly a week.

What I wouldn’t do for 1-2 of these guys....lol.

Hard to believe this staff added Greg Maddux.  I miss this level of starting pitching


Though the ‘98 staff is considered GOAT

1. 1998 Atlanta Braves

  • Greg Maddux (18-9, 2.22 ERA)*
  • Tom Glavine (20-6, 2.47 ERA)*
  • Denny Neagle (16-11, 3.55 ERA)
  • Kevin Millwood (17-8, 4.08 ERA)
  • John Smoltz (17-3, 2.90 ERA)

It will be incredibly difficult to knock off any of the 1990s Braves starting staffs for this spot that featured the three-headed monster that was Maddux, Glavine and Smoltz. The starting rotation, highlighted by its three Hall of Famers, led the league in just about every category: ERA (3.25), strikeouts (1,232), WHIP (1.22), shutouts (14) and ERA+ (128). Though Glavine walked away with the Cy, both Maddux and Smoltz finished in the top five for the award. This rotation was the best to ever do it, bar none.

We are so spoiled. Our staffs in the 90s were superhuman. Let's say Anderson is the real deal... Soroka, Fried and Anderson would be a very good staff, but it still won't seem like anything compared to those 90s staffs.

When your 4th starter is 16-11 with a 3.55 ERA, you are absolutely spoiled. That ERA would have ranked 15th in the NL last year. And FWIW, Millwood would have ranked 24th in the NL in ERA as well.
