Braves First Half Impressions
In spite of everything that's gone wrong this first half, I must say I'm proud of the work the Braves have done this season.
The pitching staff, as a whole, has been nothing short of incredible. The defense has been solid. The offense... well, let's face it: if the Braves don't get someone new, they're going to have to hope the underachievers improve.
I was planning to do a blog post later about the Braves and the first half, but I also thought it would be a good idea for us to talk about it here too.
Considering the start the Braves got off to I would say it was a great first half. They Braves should add a bat though who that is could make ones head spin, the addition of Prado should help and Uggla so far this month has put up Uggla numbers of the past with a .243/.333/.568.

Also, despite chipper have surgery i don't see him retiring early and he might the option to vest for 2013 (not that he would play then). I think the team needs a CF. I really hoped that schafer could hold it down, but that's not working. Also, I don't want nate and his poor arm going back there. If chipper ends up being lost for the season to move prado to 3B and I am confident that nate and hinske (or schafer) could hold down LF.

I am the happiest with them I have been in years. I hope they can keep it up. Wouldn't it be something if they could win the next 10. But it was sure close tonight. But a win is a win.
