Tonight, after the Braves defeated the Giants for the second night in a row, we can say that they have created a nice Post Season Run for themselves. Although the season is still very long, the Atlanta Braves are becoming the team to beat; not only I say this because I love this team, but also when we look at the numbers, this team is the hottest team in contention for the NL Wild Card right now.
Tomorrow, the team will have a very difficult task that being facing last years Cy Young award winner Tim Lincecum. He will be bringing this years 10-2 record to Atlanta, and will also try to slow down the potent Braves offense that has scored 19 runs in two games. But also I have to give a lot of credit to the pitching staff. Javier Vazquez, Jair Jurrjens, Derek Lowe, Kenshin Kawakami and Tommy Hanson are beggining to emerge as one of the leagues most dominant starting rotation by simply dominating their opponents. Its not just domination, its also pitching against great batters and making them look silly.
Thanks to this starting rotation the Braves are the team to beat if you want to win the NL Wild Card spot.
What about them Braves????
