Braves notes -

Post by Mike

Wow a 7-2 road trip with series wins over the Dodgers and a sweep of the Cardinals! Not to mention, the Braves claimed first place in the NL East!

The major difference in the 2012 version has to be the way the team is hitting and scoring. Check out the link below. Atlanta ranks second in runs scored in THE ENTIRE MAJOR LEAGUE. We trail only Texas, which has a freak factory of offensive production.

Check out the big bats!

There are few reasons for the revived offense, but chief among them has to be the new hitting coach. Then there is also the fact that Bourn and Uggla are machines. They have both started EVERY game this year. At some point Prado will have to fill in at second to give Uggla a rest, and Heyward may have to play center for a game to left Bourn have a day off.

NL ranking by number of games played.
