  • 15 titles?

    Will the Braves get their 15th consecutive title this year? And even if they do, can they do something in the playoffs besides get eliminated?

    I'd say the Braves have a good chance on making it again this year. Now if this was a poll as to whether they would do anything with it besides being eliminated I wouldn't be so sure.

    The Mets are probably the Braves biggest threat in the East this year.

      I think history alone is enough reason to pick the Braves. Even if it weren't 14 years in a row, the last 2 years Bobby Cox has done enough with so many question marks to convince me to never bet against him. I think this could be the tightest race in a while but until somebody proves they can hang with Atlanta all year I'll pick them every time. And besides that, with all this young talent and some pretty good veterans as well the Braves have a pretty good roster even if there were no streak. I say Braves win in 06
      Let's go Braves!!

        Just being nitpicky but the Braves do not have 15 consecutive titles. The Montreal Expos "won" the 1994 NL East.

          That's not being nitpicky, it's being absurd. Nobody won anything in 1994 and nobody can say what would've happened over the last 6 weeks.

            Not true. MVPs, GG's, Cy Youngs..etc were handed out in 1994, but no division leaders were recognized. As 22 pointed out, nobody knows for sure who would have won the division had those last six weeks not been cancelled. For example, on August 12, 1993, exactly one year prior to the strike, the Braves actually trailed the Giants by MORE games (8.5) than they did in 1994 to the Expos but yet still won the division.

            So, no, it has been 14 consecutive titles.

              I think the Braves can do it again and with an even more competitive division they'll win in convincing fashion. I can't wait for the season to BEGIN!!

                No way, Mets will finally take the division back from the Braves.

                    That's what everyone said last year and the year they got Mo Vaughn, Jeromy Burnitz, and Roberto Alomar. We'll see about it!

                      I'm scared of the Mets no doubt, especially now that they have a good closer in Wagner, but none the less, the Braves always find a way to finish first in the marathon that is the regular season, they've got the pitching to do it, and with the Jones boys in the line up, I think they can win it again, either way, why bet against them after 14 years.

                        My point is that even if no division titles were given out, the Braves still don't have 14 consecutive titles. How can they have 14 consecutive titles if the Braves didn't win the 1994 title? I consider the Expos the 1994 NL East champs. Yes, I'm being nit picky.

                          I say, you keep Cox as your manager in the regular season and when you reach the playoffs, you fire the guy and acquire some other non-playoff contendor team's coach....

                          Seems risky, but, it's been a while...

                              Hard to get 15th consecutive when you've only had 11 consecutive. No, I'm not saying the Expos won the 1994 because, as braves fans are quick to point out, titles weren't awarded which means NOBODY won the 1994 NL East so it is:

                              11 consecutive titles by Braves.
                              Nobody.
                              3 consecutive titles by Braves.
                              The Q: Can the Cubs hold a 6-5 lead with 2 outs and nobody on in the 9th?

                              The A: No

                              ***********My Rant on Bud Selig***********
                              Selig is like a stray pigeon. Pigeons are too self-absorbed to care about anyone else. They poo on people they don't like; they poo on people they don't even know. The only real difference between Selig and a pigeon is that Selig intends to bury our heritage, our traditions, and our culture,
