    Where is everybody? Less than 3 weeks away from Opening Day!!

    The 3B battle is too close to call right now, I think we'll be ok with whoever wins the battle.

    Still around. Watching games when they're on, reading about the goings on at the camp, looking forward to the season's start.

    The projection systems available on FanGraphs project:

    Francisco: .296/.452 (OBP/SLG) in 369 PA's for 1.4 WAR or 2.3 WAR per 600 PA's
    Johnson: .312/.425 in 463 PA's for 1.2 WAR or 1.5 WAR per 600 PA's

    FanGraphs also came out with these 3B power rankings. The Braves ranked 21st out of the 30 teams.

    Last I heard, 3B was going to likely be a straight platoon.

    Julio Teheran is looking really good this spring.

    I don't think it'lll actually hurt them much if he's out for the year. Luis Avilan can take his spot as the other lefty instead.
