As Skip Caray once said "We can dance in the streets!"

Only 1 team has ever had 3 outfielders with 20 homeruns and 15 stolen bases in a season. The 2000 Blue Jays with Shannon Stewart, Jose Cruz Jr. and Raul Mondesi. The Braves have 3 guys that could go 20/20 this season. And 4 guys that could end up with 20 stolen bases. Pretty awesome.

Our 2-8 batters are all capable of hitting 20+ homeruns. Even the platoon at third base.
That's never happened before and we have a very solid shot at it. I'll take 7 guys with 250 BA's, 20-25 homeruns, 350 OBP's, and 65-85 RBI's all day long and twice on Sunday.
Uggla won't see shit for pitches batting 8th and he still will probably hit 20 homeruns. The Francisco & Johnson platoon would have put up 24 homers last year. And we know McCann, BJ Upton, Freeman, and Heyward are all good for 20-25. Justin can certainly do it too. That kid looks damn good and isn't even close to being in his prime. Each one of these guys can put up 60+ RBI's as well. Several should get close to 100 even.
If our pitching staff can stay healthy and keep around a 3.0 ERA team average (last year we had 3.42 team average), this is going to be a crazy awesome year.

Or you could watch it on a stream site for free lol.
I think Uggs will be batting 7th with the platoon at 3rd hitting in the 8 hole.
1. Simmons, SS
2. BJ Upton, CF
3. Justin Upton, LF
4. Heyward, RF
5. Freeman, 1B
6. McCann, C
7. Uggla, 2B
8. Road Runner/Johnson 3B

I'm glad we have both Upton brothers. Our outfield loses some steals but makes up for it in power. I hope we can keep McCann past this year, he's my favorite non Chipper Brave once Smoltzie retired.

Doing your lineup would mean we lose the righty-lefty-righty-lefty situation and I don't see that happening. I heard Wren on 790 yesterday specifically say we can finally do a R-L-R-L throughout the lineup all the way to 8th batter and that this was a big deal for them.
