I have to admit that a couple of months ago I thought the Braves were through. Now, however, I must admit that this year’s Braves are a lot of fun to watch. I’ve enjoyed seeing the young rookie players come up and start rolling – there are currently ten rookies on the team, four of whom are from the Atlanta area. Andruw Jones is finally becoming the stud we’ve been led to believe he would be with his major-league leading 28 home runs. Watching Jeff Francouer (formerly of Parkview High) smack a 3-run shot to bust open a close game in his first game was fun. Watching him get a cream pie in the face in his postgame interview was probably more fun. Knowing that it all came as the Braves swept the Cubs in four games makes it that much better.
