The Braves have the best record in baseball at 83-53 and have a two game lead over the Dodgers for home field advantage in the playoffs.
The team has been unbelievably resilient. Challenges have been hurdled – injuries mounted, and then there is this:
B J Upton - .193 AVG, .275 OBP, 9 HR, 24 RBI
Dan Uggla - .184 AVG, .310 OBP, 21 HR, 53 RBI
Has any team ever won the NL Pennant with two starters batting below Mendoza?
